Gauntlet Hair

On October 14th, 1987 an 18 month old girl named Jessica McClure would become the most famous child in the world for falling down a well. She wouldn’t be rescued for two days and in the process the media attention would make a name for cable news (CNN), create a Pulitzer Prize winning image and inspire a classic made-for-TV movie starring none other than Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy) as Jessica’s young father. And naturally a lo-fi indie band looking for found footage to cut a video would gravitate towards this confluence of cultural touchstones. Here’s Gauntlet Hair with “Our Scenery” set to the indelible melodrama of “Everybody’s Babe: The Rescue of Jessica McClure”.
