With the album approaching completion, it was time to start work on all the publicity stuff, you know, standard music fare, bit of video, bit of photo, bit of logo stuff...
|'Touched A Nerve' single cover|
So, let's walk through the shoot bit by bit and paint the picture for our activities back on the 3rd of March. We had an early start for musicians, meeting at midday. The plan was to shoot mostly outside, and the weather had chosen to be iffy at best, with rain on the agenda from early on. This was a problem, we didn't really want a rainy shoot because we were planning to be where mud was, and mud and rain are good friends, sticking together closely and then hugging shoes and trouser legs for all they are worth. This was not what we had wanted, we wanted nice blue skies and dry dry mud.
Beauty had screen printed up two T-shirts for Donny and me ([adj]) to wear, they have the alien thumbs up logo on, as well as both our names. I quickly slipped into mine and proudly wore it the whole weekend.
After a few passes by the eye tree we headed back to mine for coffee and tea, while there we did a couple of passes of Donny and I sat on the bench out the back.
Once we were full of caffeine and sugar we headed for the car once more to go up to the rolling fields of Brighton known as The South Downs. Pete enjoyed the ride so much, and Dan's road rage, that he filmed us in the car as well.
Once I got home I was so tired from constant guitar strumming and vocaling that the rest of the day was spent past out in front of DVD's, drinking tea. I didn't care if it rained again, I wasn't going out for anything.
I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it.
Peace and infinite love
