Hecuba "Suffering" from the album Paradise
Featuring: Devendra Banhart, Rainbow Arabia, Pit Er Pat and We Are The World
"Suffering" is an homage to Kenneth Anger's seminal short films "Scorpio Rising" and "Kustom Kar Kommandos" (1961–1965). The sensual, religious fetishization of homoerotic biker culture and masculine idols Anger evoked in these films was our jumping-off point for the fucked-up doo-wop of Hecuba's track "Suffering" in which a young lover laments the loss of love the ripple effect of suffering that so often follows.
