From Creative Stoke Review
Xanexxx (2004) made for the now-defunct band Mountain Men Anonymous. Xanexxx shows a slowly-building montage of nature reclaiming ruins – ruins that used to be ‘the modern world’ in Stoke-on-Trent, circa 1929. Towards the end of the film we are left only with outlines and shapes, vague geometric blueprint-memories of places that are doomed to be demolished and tidied away to make way for boring industrial sheds of breeze-block and tin. The film interplays with a Mountain Men Anonymous soundtrack that provides a marching beat overlaid with a floaty nostalgic piano.
