Make The World Go Away – The Popvid!

Yes! It’s 4.48am now and around forty minutes ago, I finished editing the first popvid I’ve made in… well, since the original 1990 White Town Super 8 grainfest.

On the plus side: non-linear edting is much easier than a razor blade and sellotape.

On the minus side: iMovie HD kept crashing about every four minutes so I had to keep saving every three or so. That was a pain in the arse!

I’m quie pleased with how it’s turned out. It’s obviously a bit rubbish as it’s the first time I’ve written and made a popvid with a story (the ‘Your Woman’-era ones were all by the godlike Mark Adcock) but hopefully I’ll get better with experience.

Thanks to Ash who gamely agreed to let me order him around, drive us about and scramble over rubble. He’s a trooper!

Video for ‘Theme For A BBC Natural History Series…’

Yaaay! My mate Ian has very kindly made this short video for the instrumental ‘Theme For A BBC Natural History Series Presented By Richard Dawkins,’ off my new album. It’s lovely!

Undressed

Last night I stuck the video for ‘Undressed’ up on YouTube GooTube. I’ve not watched it in years, so it was pretty fresh for me. I think Mark Adcock, the director, did his usual sterling job.

I’m in the process of doing some videos for the new album and watching this old one made me appreciate the time and effort put into it. And the editing! So many angles, so many studio shots edited into the location footage. And expensive dolly / crane shots.

Hmmm… it’s all a bit daunting now! :-)

White Town Live Vid

Yep, yep! Thanks to the “miracle of the cyberwent” (TM), even if you weren’t at the gig I did last Friday in Gothenburg, you can now hear my rather tremulous rendition of the first White Town song. Which was… White Town. (You can download the original 7″ version for free from here.)

Note my two lovely assistants, Ville from Cats on Fire and Stefan from Agent Simple. They both played much better than I did, the swine.

Thanks to the Cosy Den posse for posting up the vid on You Tube! Check out their other vids, there’s some real gems on there.
