White of face and black of heart, international man of misery, ALEISTER X is set to release his highly-anticipated follow up to last year’s debut, BANGERS & BEANS with THE GIT EP on October 12, 2010 (UK- 10/11). The EP will be released on ANDREW W.K.’s - STEEV MIKE label and will feature the single – “On Your Feet”. The music video for “On Your Feet”, Directed by Andrew Strasser (Andrew W.K., Larry Tee, Girl Talk) was a collaborative effort by CREAM DREAM TEAM, which involves Strasser as well as Director of Photography Jon Hokanson and styling and set dressing by Heidi Lee and Toto Feldman.
On October 7th Self-Titled Magazine, a daily site with a bi-monthly digital magazine available on the web, mobile phones and mobile reading tablets will feature the world premiere of the “On Your Feet” video. In addition, Self-Titled is currently premiering an exclusive sneak-peek, behind-the-scenes webisode featuring ALEISTER X in the recording studio with a mixed cast of characters touching on what went into the making of THE GIT and the video; including a stream of the track. See it, hear it here:
Aleister X had this to say about the video, "Sadie said there was a new all-night ice cream parlor with a pull-up, and they had this Black Death Licorice Crystal Chunk flavour. That was all I needed to hear. We had a laff and a joke, fired up The Coop, and set out in search of that flavour. It was lefts, it was rights. Highways and hairpins. The bloody Coops' got a mind of its own and needless to say we got sidetracked. The GPS went tits-up; left us in the fritz again. Seems like every time I try to do something fun, even something small like going for ice cream, I get caught up in some bloody tangent and things get all derailed, innit? That's exactly how it went down, so let's keep our stories straight."
Born in Goa, raised by Brit ex-pats in a proto-trance commune called Tollinger Lane, and currently dividing his time between Kingston, Brooklyn and Tokyo, Aleister X is a world traveler in his own mind, a lone wanderer with a rain cloud hanging perpetually over his head. THE GIT descends further into the gloom of Aleister X as he haunts pubs, clubs, beach bars and lidos, a bad vibe in search of a good time.
Aleister X recently took part in an art exhibition in Massachusetts featuring other artists including Peter Glantz, Chiara Giovando, Kianja Strobert just to name a few. Check it out here:
