The Mission pays tribute to Marianne Faithfull with ‘The Girl in a Fur Skin Rug’ video

The Mission circa 2013

With The Mission having recently started using film projections in concert for the first time, Wayne Hussey decided to go the next step and put together a full music video for one of the band’s songs: “The Girl in the Fur Skin Rug,” a tribute to Marianne Faithfull that now features an accompanying video compiled from historic and archival images.

As Hussey writes:

“I was asked very recently what the film was that we were using as the projection for ‘the girl in the fur skin rug’ on our recent tour. Anyone who saw any of the shows will have seen that we were using a projection screen for the very first time and we were showing movies for some of the songs – Black Cat Bone, Deliverance, Tower Of Strength, & Swan Song included. All the films were put together by either myself or by Rhory who directed the last two Mission videos. You’ve seen some of my previous work here on Facebook as I posted some of my ‘little’ films before the tour started. Anyway, I got the bug. And decided to try something a little more ambitious. Hence this video for ‘the girl in the fur skin rug’. I feel a new career coming on!”
