The Afghan Whigs have made their monitor engineer the star of their new video for ‘The Lottery’.
The GoPro-filmed clip features road crew member Ryan O’Hara putting a unique spin on the often solitary job of manning the sound levels.
Frontman Greg Dulli explains: “He wakes up everyday with a smile on his face and something positive to share with you. Every night during the gig he performs a parallel show behind the board and it’s phenomenal to watch. Occasionally, I’ll forget to sing because I’m watching him turn into Bez from Happy Mondays. But that’s rock and roll for you. It keeps you young.”
Check out Ryan’s moves in the clip below.
The band return to the UK next month in support of their new album, Do To The Beast. Catch them at the following venues:
Feb 02: Dublin Whelans Feb 03: Edinburgh Liquid Rooms Feb 04: London Koko
