Which rocker has the sexiest elbows? Apparently Jason Narducy of indie rockers Split Single, at least according to a star-studded mock rock doc. Margaret Cho can’t help herself sucking on them, Dave Grohl poses for pictures with the elbows and Superchunk attempt to surreptitiously snap phone pics of them, much to Narducy’s chagrin. The three-minute clip also offers commentary from the likes of former Hüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould, comedian and Late Night bandleader Fred Armisen (in the guise of faux-Brit rocker Ian Rubbish), Spoon’s Britt Daniel and more.
It’s worth noting, of course, that a credit for the doc’s concept goes to Narducy himself. He was able to get so many famous faces in the clip, mostly because he’s an indie-rock Zelig type, having played with Mould, Superchunk and Robert Pollard through the years. He’s currently prepping for the release of Split Single’s debut, Fragmented World, due out on April Fool’s Day. It’s a record that also features a little help from some notable names: Spoon’s Britt Daniel plays bass and provides backing vocals on the record while Superchunk’s Jon Wurster handles the drums and percussion.
Grohl even provided a cheeky comment to help his friend promote Fragmented World: “Watching Jason was the first time I thought I could start my own band, and write my own kind of music. Jason totally set my life in this new direction. It wasn’t a Jimmy Page or Kiss poster I had – it was fuckin’ him!” But Dave, what about his elbows?
