Video Archive #1: Poetic Frenzy

This Poetic Frenzy promo video was made for SBK records in 1991 to promote Slowdive in the USA. It consists of interview segments with Neil, Simon and Nick over a backdrop of two music videos: Shine and Catch the Breeze. (Strangely enough, Shine was never released in the USA by SBK.) Simon’s foretelling of how Slowdive’s future albums would explore a variety of sonic landscapes, and how Just for a Day is just “one colour in the Slowdive rainbow”, is one of the most interesting things on this tape.
