OK over the next week in the blog we're going to be focusing in on the album in more detail and bring together a series of filmed interviews we did at the start of the year at The Boogaloo Bar in North London. For those that want or need a bit of context it's a little window into how the album songs came about.
Let's kick off with track one from 'Stand Upright In A Cool Place' - TRIPPED AND FELL
We'd like to give a big shout out to an exciting film-maker called Kris Thompson who filmed, edited and put these films together for us, above and beyond the call of duty. We met Kris at a roudy night at the This Feeling clubnight in Hoxton where he was filming us for the club. His camera assistant was Ollie Pearson, we linked up with journalist Terry Staunton who helped to get the info out of us (no waterboarding necessary) and a special friend Noel Thompson came along and helped out with sound. Noel did some live sound for Dodgy in the very early days and then moved into becoming a film soundman - so all top notch.
Here's Track Two - WHAT BECAME OF YOU
More tomorrow as we work through the tracks on the album ... thanks for reading /watching/ listening etc. x
