Who Killed Russell Jones?  Reply with quote  

https://youtu.be/97W1sLRsrtE

This ODB tribute by B. Dolan borrows the style and format of Bob Dylan's "Who Killed Davey Moore?" to examine the brilliant, controversial and tragic arc of Russell Jones (AKA Old Dirty Bastard.) The repeated question of the song's chorus demands an answer, though the verses suggest there might be enough blame for all of us to share.

This footage was taken from a performance in Hull, UK (October, 2013) when the venue blew a fuse halfway through B. Dolan's first song. In an attempt to appease a room of 500 restless fans, Dolan switched gears and gave spoken word performance of a new song, "Who Killed Russell Jones?" A photographer in the front row named Carl Spring switched his camera to 'video' mode and recorded this footage, which was then edited and animated by motion designer Alex Dobbin.

B. Dolan will be touring with Atmosphere on their "Fortunate Tour" this May, before dropping his 3rd studio album in July 2015 (Strange Famous Records / Speech Development.)

Finally, I don't have to watch the shitty cell phone videos of this song anymore. But yes, this is one of my favorite things that has ever been created. Is it still going to end up on the album with a beat behind it?

This is just awesome. Made me check out the Dylan original song also. Very powerful. Everybody's full of excuses. Implying culpability only by listing excuses is just so simple and elegant to me. Well done, Bob Dolan.

And the video production is spot on.
