Li'l Leonie Lionheart - Not Then or When (2010)

I was cleaning the house and found a DVD that a friend had given me a few years ago, which I'd yet to watch. Footage of her shoulder surgery. I played it and was mesmerised by the images, very raw and peaceful. For some reason it made me think of Li'l Leonie Lionheart, so I paired them up. More than a few people have been bewildered by this video, as if it were some kind of sick joke that contaminated an otherwise pleasant song. Someone even mentioned that it'd be more appropriate for a band like Pig Destroyer. But I think it fits Leonie's music well and besides, Li'l Leonie Lionheart and Pig Destroyer have more in common than one might think.
