Robot Koch feat. Graciela María – “People Are Strange”

Germany/Mexico, 2009

Cover art for the album Death Star Droid by Robot Koch. Very hard to describe: imagine a collage where someone's tried to built the image of a human being out of an anatomy book, a book on entomology, and maybe some random medieval manuscripts? Like I said: hard to explain or describe.

The original song by The Doors has enough of a Halloween connotation just by itself. It was covered on The Lost Boys soundtrack by Echo & The Bunnymen. However, if you want the purest, most haunted version of the track I’ve encountered, you need to go to Robot Koch and Graciela María. The music video in my head is nothing but empty neighborhood streets with dead leaves blowing around. Lovely.
