Spectres Attack Radio 1 In Sinister New Video


In a Black Mirror-esque parallel universe, where Fearne Cotton is returning to Radio 1 as a regular presenter, Bristol band Spectres find themsevles performing in the Live Lounge and they make the most of the opporunity to embark on a rampage against the great and good of the nation's favourite new music station.

No strangers to BBC controversy – following the alternative Bond theme fake email debacle – the video is a culmination of over a year's work by the band and director James Hankin, in protest against the 'genuinely horrific' output of station, in particular 'the tragedy of our times' that is the Live Lounge.

In an interview with an anoynmous journalist, the band explain how the ambitious project came about and why they think it's high time someone said something about the steady demise of Radio 1 (hence the inclusion of John Peel's ghost).

Watch the video in all its eerie glory below, and head to the band's site for the full interview.
