Collapsing Scenery stage all-female reboot of Lord of the Flies in new video for Randy Newman cover
Words: Sam Geary
The uncompromising NYC guitarist Don De Vore and LA singer Reggie Debris, collectively known as Collapsing Scenery, stage an all-female reboot of Lord of the Flies in new Kansas Bowling-directed video for their cover of Randy Newman's 'Let's Burn Down The Cornfield', which features James Chance on sax.
"I’d been a fan of director Kansas Bowling from afar, and we immediately clicked creatively when we met in person," says Debris. "Her idea was simply a gender flipped riff on Lord of the Flies. There are so many memorable set pieces in that novel, including the fallen paratroopers, which inspired the costuming for me and Don."
