Gloom and Toon

Gloom and doom is how some dimmer critics have long described Richard Thompson’s music. I never bought it; not only is RT a brilliant guitarist and songwriter but he’s pretty damn funny. Trust me, I know from funny and Richard is funny.

Here’s a tres cool animated video from the rag end of the glory days of the rock video. It features the animated adventures of Richard Thompson singing an chirpy ditty about a guy who just got out of jail.
