Unknown Mortal Orchestra Release Bizarre Video to Their ‘Shakedown Street’ Cover

If you think May’s Grateful Dead tribute album Day of the Dead is in the rearview mirror, you’re wrong. Unknown Mortal Orchestra, one of the many groups featured on the project, has released the video for their rendition of 1978’s “Shakedown Street.” The Business Company-directed clip more or less plays out like a psyched-out version of Monty Python’s Life of Brian, with a pale jester, a blue-skinned business man, and some knights parading about. Watch the art piece below.
