Beirut – Elephant Gun

Posted: November 18th, 2007, by Ollie

Practically everyone I know has spent most of this year LOSING THEIR SHIT to this song, and I have been unable come with anything even approaching a valid reason not to do the same. Only saw this video for the first time the other morning after a particularly gruesome night before, and suddenly the song took on a whole new life of it’s own, entirely different from the one that had been previously bouncing off the insides of my skull. Sublime.


Ollie lives in Cambridge and puts on gigs as part of Crushing Death and Grief.
