Shabbey Road Sessions #2

Entries in this blog are like buses….you wait a while then have to pay £3.40 to get a return to the chip shop. Or something.

Here’s a few more vids…I rarely leave the confines of my flat (if at all possible) so expect more of the same in the coming weeks. Just call me Strickland Banks (nb you have to be somewhat ‘down with the kids’ to appreciate this reference…however, you’re reading this blog so that makes you at least 70% cooler than most ordinary folk…I expect you know what i’m rabbiting on about…) if not, send an email…BUT NOT TO ME. God, no.

First up – an unreleased song that’s been knocking about for a while. It does actually have a proper ending…I just messed it up here. It’s called ‘So Scared’ and was written as part of an unreleased soundtrack of Bang songs for an unreleased film. We’re so cutting edge, we don’t even RELEASE stuff anymore. You just have to guess how it sounds…

The film is called ‘Before Your Eyes’ and has been written by the uber talented Pinter Moments chaps. They’ve been good friends of ours since the early days (they made the ‘Lung’ video don’cha’kno…it’s been downhill since then really…) and the script is rather lovely…perhaps one day it will see the light of day. Potential investors, send an email. TO ME. God, yes.

Talking of me messing up…here’s a cover of the wonderful Patrick Wolf song ‘House’. I’m beavering away there on the mandolin but I only really know 3 chords and this had 4 so excuse the faffing. I suppose I could have re-recorded all this stuff after a couple of practices but where’s the fun in that eh? Everything in the Shabbey Road Sessions is 1st take or not at all. Much like life. Deep stuff.

So there you go…I’m gonna bung the ol’ vid of ‘Lung’ up here too just because it’s good (showing that, if we pull our fingers out, we can actually achieve something) and talking about it made me watch it for the first time in a couple of years. My hairdo’s have not improved.
