A GU article on German “acoustic techno” group Brandt Brauer Frick reminds me of the beautifully hand drawn video for their track Caffeine… there’s a section in the middle which I think refers to Jaco Pastorius’Okonkole Y Trompa, so I’ll pair them off for the put-upon commuters among you.
Gregory is a strange little man/child who wears a straightjacket and lives in a padded cell. He doesn’t say much, but usually manages to get his point across. His friend Herman Vermin, the rat who lives in his pants, does say a quite a lot, but is rather accident prone and gets killed off on a regular basis (am convinced that South Park stole the idea of Kenny from here). Other friends include Wendel the mouse, who has a serious cheese obsession, and various insects.
Creator, Marc Hempel is best known for his art on “The Kindly Ones” arc in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. Highly recommend exploring Gregory’s strange little world. Some more info Here
