Local Schizophrenic : Piece of Meat Blues (songwriting and video making)Posted: June 20, 2015
A song and video combination I created for the Meat-Man character to seep into the online world.
The track is about a lady living the isolating effects of being labelled and treated for paranoid schizophrenia, whilst also having to deal with the horrible symptoms and the behaviours that come from that. Mental health often does need medication but the healthcare system has the same type of twats scattered within it as every other job has… There’s no winners.
In the video we attempted to depict the Meat-Man singing his blues whilst losing and then chasing the attention of an audience, which results in a bad outcome.
Thanks to Lloyd Houston for playing a decent sinister flasher, and Tom Margott for playing Meat-Boy and doing the lighting, and to Matt Clench for filming.
