Aztec Camera Videos - Walk Out To Winter With Roddy Frame! Songs, Albums, Pictures, Photos and Artwork
(Thanks to Killermont Street for use of the video!)
The plot of this video is disturbing to say the very least. It involves Roddy Frame of Aztec Camera parading around a dire seaside town whilst either persuing or being persued by an old woman. Its not quite clear. Obviously Roddy was going through a midlife crisis at the time. Even though he wasn't even 20.
Mr Camera is walking along the sea shore where he first encounters said old lady sitting down reading a newspaper. Everything seems ordinary bar Roddy's funky bohemian hair-do and matching jacket.
Its onwards and upwards for Frame as he parades towards the telephone box up the road. But wait a minute! Who's that in there? Yes you've guessed right.
The old lady looks disgusted that she has been rumbled by Mr Frame. She steps out of the box and walks off on a strop. Roddy looks eerily amused. He looks back to the seat where she was sitting before and by-fuck shes disappeared! The camera switches back and forth Hollywood-stylee to convey the guitarist's utter bewilderment.
The next scene is completely unrelated to the previous ones. It features Rodderick playing guitar - whilst slouching on a rock pulling all sorts of cheesey-seque faces to the camera. This scene doesn't last too long thankfully. I was expecting the camera to cut to Daniel O'Donnell playing the tin whistle beside him.
Back onto the main *ahem* plot. Roddy takes temporary leave of his senses and begins walking in a seemingly random direction over some grass. We are then left to assume that he was heading towards the carnival all along. .
Roddy continues to walk through the abandoned fairground with seeming intent. Has he led the camera here to buy several thousand crates of stolen Irn-Bru from a rogue Glaswegian gang? Only time will tell!
Guess who? Yes. Its her again! And she rounds the corner like David Coulthard. This time Roddy looks less than amused by her shock appearance.
This is where it gets a little surreal. Mr Frame (I presume it's still him) has been transformed into a Bowiesque lady-boy. Was the old girl really David Bowie in drag all along? Has he placed a curse on him, rendering him ridiculously effeminate for all eternity?
To be honest I was never really up to speed with this video from the off. And yet it continues to become ever more surreal.
Mr Frame decides to leg it for seemingly no reason. He's trapped in some weird housing estate. How he got here I do not know. Perhaps the real David Bowie came along and kidnapped him, dropped him off at the biggest shithole he could find and left him to fend for himself. Anywhoooo....
Guess who he encounters at every corner?
Roddy has had enough of it all. He doesn't stop running until he's at the sea and lunges full-force towards a watery end. In what must be one of the most camp leaps in the history of........well everything - Rodderick lands decidely short of the water.
That look can only mean one thing.
