Uncle Earl video online

Uncle Earl video for Streak o Fat, Streak O LeanThe new music video from Uncle Earl can be viewed online, at www.stereogum.com. The video is for the tune, Streak o’ Lean, Streak o’ Fat from their current CD, Waterloo, Tennessee.

It is a comical and quirky take on the tune, with the g’earls finding their dinner at a Chinese restaurant interrupted by a West Side Story-like step battle between kung fu fighters and step and clog dancers – complete with classic fight scene audio clichés from the Bruce Lee genre.

Throughout the set-to, the ladies play an old time tune, which has no apparent effect on the combatants. Fiddler Casey Driessen and Waterloo producer John Paul Jones have cameo appearances.
