A new upload of this video dedicated to my first (almost) teenage rite of passage and the great Joe jackson – the soundscape of that time.
The song was recorded and produced at Clowns pocket studios in Kent, by the mighty Phil Scragg. Featuring Andy Bratt on drums, Phil on bass and me on everything else.
The video was recorded and produced by the great Matt Ottewill. He has just released a lovely album called Songs Sung and thereis a hand drawn video from that on his excellent multimedia forum/site planetoftunes.com.
The star of the video is a wonderful young actress called Hannah who is wearing a wig and her very obliging boyfriend whose name eludes me – he is pretending to be young me and doing a fine job. But she was excellent; the camera really loved her – and her evocative performance is so like the girl in my memory – flirtatious, funny, dangerous and finally lost…
Despite the few thousand hits for the last version, I didnt do all these great people (or myself) justice with my skanky upload skills. Hence the reload on this excellent site.
For contact details of any of the people mentioned, feel free to message me.
