Feedback: An Epic Unveiled
We've done a video for Feedback
. It's fast, funny and brand new. And you can see it here
. Making it was a lot of laughs and involved a surprising amount of travelling: from the white cliffs of Seaford to a panoramic hangar at Sky TV via a derelict Quickfix garage somewhere off the A23. We also had a session hanging out in some of our favourite haunts in Soho. The video was shot, conceived and edited by Jon Slade, the Quentin Tarantino of the budget TV/video promo. Check out his site at www.sladey.com
, and many thanks to him. Thanks also to Peter Wear and Wellington who played a small but crucial role as The Man and Dog. Make sure you watch through to the end to catch this Oscar-worthy cameo. And Jackie the kid is in there somewhere too. Whoo-hoo!
What else? Well, NovaTunes has suspended operations - temporarily, they say. So if you didn't get your download of Threewheeling
already, then hard luck. The good news is that having tackled the download market via downtown LA, we are now working towards a CD release of Threewheeling
in the UK. Full news when I've got it. But the wheels are most definitely in motion.
The Johnny Dowd gig went down a storm. I broke a string in the first number, but hey. Great to meet Mr Dowd. What a cool guy. We had a moment at the merchandise table at the end of the night when he gave me a copy of his album and I gave him a copy of Hey
. I hope we meet again.
Then on to the 100 Club for one of our best shows yet. Playing with Wilko Johnson. Ray behind the sound desk. Great crowd in. It all felt so good. We are back at Cox's Yard in Stratford-upon-Avon tomorrow, which is one of my favourite venues, with Wilko again. And I'll be bigging it all up on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire radio, talking to Lorna Bailey at about 6.10 tomorrow evening (Friday July 11), before the gig. That's on 94.8, 104 & 103.7FM if you are in the area, or you can listen to it live online here
