A last minute shoot for the good lads at I’m Not From London , here in Nottingham.
First time out with my posh new kit, my field recorder broke, and sound desk also failed to record the song and so we have just in-camera mic for the audio (oh dear).
Using methods which would make a producer weep with the ugliness of it all, I managed to kill the wind buffets, camera clicks and me gabbing over the top of Sam Kirk’s performance. Not too bad, really, for shitty in-camera mic I reckon.
This gig in the Arboretum park was organised by Jason Loftus from Trent Sounds with the help of Will and Pat of I’m Not From London, and Nottingham Live – as part of the national “Our Big Gig” project.
Reckon this will be my last video using iphones and cheap camcorders. A little video for some good friends of mine over the border (and far away) in Aberfeldy, Craig and Ryan of Star Wheel Press. The song is Railway lines, from their last album.
Their music is here: http://starwheelpress.bandcamp.com/
Another lo fi postcard from the
spare room bukamus studio.
Hope you like it.

Well, now…..this wasn’t quite so straight forward as I’d expected. Zoetrope made, song written, video shot…just had to get it in some kind of internet-able format.
My favourite American drunk once said…the Gods aren’t cruel, they just want to be sure. I think the digital Gods must be pathologically suspicious, with an inexhaustible supply of gratuitous crashes, file destruction, brutish compression and random corruption.
I hope you like it. Making it nearly drove me quite insane.
