Detalhes do Vídeo

Peter Blegvad (born August 14, 1951) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, writer, and cartoonist. He was a founding member of German/English avant-pop band Slapp Happy, which later merged briefly with Henry Cow, and has released many solo and collaborative albums. He is the son of Lenore and Erik Blegvad, who were respectively, a children's book author and illustrator.
In the 1980s, Blegvad released a number of commercially unsuccessful albums on the Virgin Records label, including 'The Naked Shakespeare' and 'Knights Like This'.

'The Naked Shakespeare' was anything but straightforward, with his usual wordplay and philosophical wonderings woven through the lyrics that accompanied the alt-pop 80s tunes.
'Karen' was a leftover from Blegvad’s days with Slapp Happy. He recorded a demo with the band, unusually taking the vocal lead himself. That version was a bit lugubrious but intriguing; it showed up on a reissue of the band’s 'Acnalbasac Noom' as a bonus track. For 'The Naked Shakespeare', he worked it up in the vein of the rest of the album and everything clicked. It’s a song of obsession and loss that wonders if a period of lusty joy is worth the final price.
