I hear the sirens calling
As the rain is gently falling

A very large and very furry hat

This is the video for Loop Guru’s superbly otherworldly “Sussan”. It came out on Nation Records in 1994 and features Iranian singer Sussan Deyhim, who has also worked with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Jah Wobble and Jerry Garcia. I co-managed Loop Guru with my old pal James Clayton for a big chunk of the 1990s and I remember being very excited when Sussan arrived in London to hook up with the group for the first time. That’s not Sussan in the video, though. She was on her way back home by the time that was filmed.

But no matter, because someone a lot more interesting than Sussan is in there. I’m talking about the good looking guy in the very large and very furry hat. He is only in a few shots, so you will need to watch closely. Yes, dear friends, this was the start of my career as a music video extra. It was the end of it too.
