RIOT OF THE DAY /// ANTHONY LISTER MAKES VIDEO FOR FAIT ACCOMPLI’S COVER OF M.I.A CLASSIC ‘BORN FREE’

LISTER
Revered Aussie artist and dead set legend ANTHONY LISTER directed the BORN FREE video for Sydney soul punks FAIT ACCOMPLI. CHECK IT OUT BELOW!

Here’s what the band had to say about the making of the video.

When recording was complete, we discussed a whole range of video ideas. But after listening to Born Free on repeat, the random thought of getting the talented artist Anthony Lister to direct our video was all of a sudden becoming an apparent reality (in our heads).
 
Ray who is friends with Lister built up the courage to ask if he would be keen on making a music video. And as luck would have it, Lister said yes.
 
After going back and forth over several ideas, in the end Lister decided to take the reigns and make the video by himself. Naturally we were all curious, excited and a little nervous, but mostly we were excited.
 
A few days later in pure Lister style, he emailed us a download link and disappeared overseas.

Yew!
