Once the Rhodes Colossus that was Ovlov collapsed into the sea, news that Steve Hartlett had enough material for another album were well known. He Stove as the name for this new chapter in his life and Is Stupider was the name of the album.
It was a great ride in and out Hartlett’s mind. And we were richer for the experience.
Now, ‘Stupidest’ gets a video, just in time for a set of live dates for Stove. ‘Stupidest’ neck-breaking speed requires a short video with a curt message. Said message is “Be afraid of vegetables. Be very afraid.” We will.
