Sick Vids Brah 2011 #06: Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats "Ritual Knife"

We normally stray from praising videos without any element of artist performance, even if it's only a few seconds of lipsynching or guitar strumming. We're especially prejudiced against videos that simply recycle easily searchable stock clips from Youtube. However, Uncle Acid is shrouded in mystery, so they can't show their faces. It's debatable whether they've played a live show, so they wouldn't have been able to perform anyway. But most importantly, "Ritual Knife" kicks so much ass, and the clips were so obviously chosen with care by someone who was painfully searching for a very specific atmosphere. So basically, they got away with murder.
