Calling all fans of straight-to-video, filmed on videocassette horror; Attic Ted have something special lined up for you. "Skip to the Lulu" is directed by Jeffrey Garcia who kicks up nostalgic dust of Cannibal Cookout, The Video Dead, and Video Violence. Without leaning towards schlock humor the way Scott Barber did on Roky Moon's memorable "Creatures of the Night," this video embodies the weird yet serious methodos of Attic Ted– a notable balance to say the least. This is the first look at their new album Kafka Dreaming which will be out later this week.
