Beyond Very Fond

Do you remember when you first heard this song?

Another strong contestant for best fan-made DI6 music video. It perfectly emphasizes the emotional content of the song. The footage is from Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr's epic 7 hour long Sátántangó (Satan's Tango).

A fait accompli

This is the best fan-made music video for Death In June I have yet seen. When I first saw it I thought its somewhat humoristic character was a bit too at odds with the seriousness of the song, but after subsequent viewings I've found it to be just perfect. The youtube profile-name of its creator is 'DerTodesking777'. He has a lot of other remarkable DI6 videos on his channel. He also keeps an excellent website on weird, outsider & art cinema: Soiled Sinema. In a very readworthy review there of the Death In June documentary "Behind the Mask" he writes that he likes "different musical groups for a variety of reasons ranging from novelty to a deep emotional connection but Death in June is one of few groups whose entire aesthetic package I am completely enamored with." About his video-editing he says that it is "primarily intuitive. I generally edit a video "in my head" and then eventually physically edit it. I am self-taught. One of my biggest influences is the films of Kenneth Anger. I also edit official videos for the excellent American neofolk group HARVEST RAIN."
I look forward to seeing many more beautiful videos by 'DerTodesking777' (or Matt) for DI6 and others.

A question for the readers of the blog: Which fan-made DI6 music video do you find particularly good?
Post a link to it in the comments, and perhaps add a few words on what makes it stand out to you.

Douglas P. on 'DEATH IN JUNE LIVE ACTION 2011'

After years of being asked to once again perform in the live arena I recently
and, I must admit reluctantly, agreed to do selected dates in Europa and perhaps
elsewhere in the World.

2011 is the official 30th Anniversary of the formation of Death In June, the
release of its first 12" e.p. 'Heaven Street' and first live performance in
London. It's been 6 years since Death In June last performed in public and '6'
is the number of June. This year is a significant landmark.

And, it's unlikely there will be a 35th Anniversary tour let alone 40th
Anniversary. Times are too uncertain and Time itself has taken its toll. It is
now - or never - for such a venture.

Bearing that in mind we have tried to have a comprehensive as possible selection
of countries thoughout Europa and perhaps elsewhere visited during what remains
of 2011. Certainly there will be countries missed out and there will be people
disappointed, probably on many levels, but we are trying to make performances as
accessible geographically as possible. And we trust we "let the right ones in."

Please remember that some performance locations will be kept secret until the
last moment for very good reasons. Not everyone out there in internetland and
elsewhere has our best interests at heart. Far from it! Remember, even if you
have a ticket to such performances the information that will come your way is
for YOU alone. Not your best friend who can't make it, or your record company
owner who would love to go but has better things to do, or even any so-called
former 'colleague' of mine etc and so on blah, blah, blah.

If they are meant to know, they'll know. If not,...it's best they don't!

Careless talk can be the difference between a show happening - or attracting
'problems' for scurrilous reasons at the last moment - which could lead to

And certainly, going by previous experience all the real flak will start coming
our way only as we get closer to the targets. And, there are still several
targets yet to be finalized on this Death In June 30th Anniversary Tour. More
news about them soon.

Having said all that I trust all goes very well for all concerned over the next
few months and that many of the 'Altekampfer' will meet up again for good
cultural times, 'Kameradschaft' and possibly one last toast to all that's been
and will be again.
