UGO - 2016
By Dead Pirates
Animation by McBess

The latest animation from McBess and his band, Dead Pirates, is both music video and advertisement.

If this is how good an advertisement can be, More Please! I won't block it!

McBess is the musician and illustrator, Matthieu Bessudo, whose artistic style, imitative of vintage black and white Disney and more specifically, Max & Dave Fleischer cartoons, is now being imitated by others.

Where the latest wave of "others" may be watered down versions of McBess, there is nothing second or third generation about Mattheiu's work. He would have been the firebrand artist that the Fleischer Brothers brought in during their own black & white era to move them from children's cartoons and into adult animation: which is where they were going anyway before the censors stepped in and they had to rebuild themselves to create the still stunning Superman color cartoons.

Looking at McBess' work, and now this animation, makes me imagine an alternate earth where such a thing could have happened.

Good to see that, nearly a century later, Fleischer Studios continue to inspire.

FeoFootNote: Many American Underground cartoonists of the 1960s and 70's went through their Disney / Fleischer period including Robert Crumb, Dan O'Neill, and Jim Woodring.

Lyrics

I've been packing up my suitcase
Got no where in mind
I know I'll be missing that face
Got my finger tied

Well we may meet up back at your place
I'll make my own way

I can hear my friend howling downstairs
You and me won't get to sleep tonight

When will we be out of this space?
I see you wearing out
Oh but I get you out of this place
A push deferring sound

It's just a little bit of horseplay
I've been slow-cooking swine

I can hear my friend howling downstairs
You and me won't get to sleep tonight

My girl
Some most times seems when the sun goes we will shine

My style
Won't deny that when the sun comes we do shine
