D.G.- Is there a video for outta your mind???
B.S.- aint got nothing to do with me

The “Two Fingers Down My Throat” video seems to have been filmed in a bombed out toilet. Where was that? Is Busy Signal sitting on porcelain?

T.G.- That was shot in the toilet of our favourute fried chicken restaurant ‘Fowl Language’. We had to film it in a toilet because Busy Signal has cholitis so always needs to be near a toilet as he shits at least ten times a day. That’s why he plays drums – so he can sit down otherwise his instrument is a guitar. If you listen closely to some Gaggers recordings you can hear his arse ripping.
B.S.- i dont know much about the old drummer he optied out of the band to get a phd in o.a.p colon care, so your asking the wrong man buddy
