Expialidocious by Pogo: the new wizard of Oz

I can't find out much about Pogo: he seems to be a one man band from Perth. His myspace page is here. This video makes me laugh — the dancing chimney sweeps are absolutely mesmerising — and yet the overall effect is sad, for reasons I can't quite put my finger on but possibly having to do with the passing of childhood and the irretrievability of its artefacts.


  1. Yeah, we love that video. And, yes, sad and magical and delightful. Pogo's Alice is really good, too. More one-note, perhaps, but still pretty haunting.

  2. Have you seen the Pogo Mellow Brick Road video contest?
