Errors – “Magna Encarta” Music Video

Glasgow, Scotland’s Errors roam through all landscapes — terrestrial, aquatic, otherworldly, rave-y — in this video for “Magna Encarta”, sometimes with a chicken as their prime focus, and sometimes not. All landscapes become intertwined with one another throughout the course of the video, however, with the chicken remaining the only constant.

Perhaps there is a lesson to be learned from this? Is this a literal take on the question of chicken or the egg? (But there are no eggs…)

Ohhhhh, no matter. Errors are soon going on tour with Mogwai, and it’s going to be amaaaaaaaaazzzzzzziiiiing! You need to go. There’s a reason these guys are killin’ it in the UK (and the chicken has only a little to do with it).
