Shortstraw – High School

Shortstraw release brand new music video for ‘High School’. The video can be described as a mean-ass Japanese schoolgirl who goes on a vengeful rampage through the streets of Japan in search of that meddling band, Shortstraw. She destroys them with a guitar solo.

“This video is Russ’ brainchild. He envisioned this badass Japanese schoolgirl just striding down a Japanese street and beating shit up as she went along. We then fleshed it out together to include some special effects and the band displaying some poor running form too!” – Alastair Thomas.

Shot in Osaka and Tokyo, the band had a day off on tour and decided to put it to good use and make a video. Fortunately their translator, Haruka, was super keen to get involved, and after she flipped off some queue jumpers at Universal Studios, they knew they had found their heroine. They scoured the neighbourhood called ‘America’ before they found the ideal road (about 4 blocks from Flake Records), and managed to find a trolley from a nearby music shop to use as dolly and tracks – they initially were using a minibus and shooting out the back, but the police told them they were not allowed to do that.
