When last heard from, Superchunk/Mountain Goats/Bob Mould drummer Jon Wurster was getting in touch with his inner Edward R. Murrow, reporting from the front lines of America's troubled airline industry with the same sort of deadpan flair for the absurd we've come to know and love. And now he's trying on his acting shoes, sort of. Wurster pretty much steals the show with his star turn as jerky boyfriend Denny Rock in Aimee Mann's new video (a remake of 'Til Tuesday's 1985 hit "Voices Carry"), which also features Jon Hamm as the smarmy director.
As Wurster notes in the introduction, he is "basically here to crush." And he does.
