ALTHOUGH hyperbolic PR campaigns may proclaim many of today’s artists to be phenomenons or part of a fully fledged movement, few have the accolades to back it up quite like Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5.
Founded on ethically sound principles that espouse an emphasis on unfaltering acceptance of all and aim to benefit humanity at large, the merry band of activists; led by their commanding officer and shamanic frontman John Thomas McMustard, will be taking their exuberant material down to Brighton for the renowned industry showcase The Great Escape next week.
A diverse and bustling city that is sure to welcome the mind-expanding message of the Dijon with open arms, the group are prefacing the excursion with the release of ‘Peace, Love & Mustard’ and we’re happy to premiere its video right here on TTV.
The very concept that’s been pivotal in their ethos from the outset, the track which brings their manifesto to life is reminiscent of the heady sound of Primal Scream’s seminal Screamadelica in its use of horns and jubilant horns. Taken from their forthcoming EP that will be made available on the 21st May, the new Chris Lynch-directed video sees their benevolent leader hit the streets and disseminate their righteously colourful message to the masses at a time where banality and blandness reigns.
Peace, Love & Mustard will be released via Electric Honey.
