London scuzz punks Nothingheads new single is inspired by the story of Topsy the elephant, who was electrocuted to death on Coney Island as part of a public display in 1903. The publicity stunt was claimed to be a scientific demonstration of the power of electricity by Thomas Edison, but it was later revealed that the elephant was executed for killing a spectator who had stubbed out a cigar on her truck.

Ben Coiacetto created this artwork for the single based on Topsy’s life and death at the amusement park, supposedly the first filmed death for entertainment purposes.
