I’d be lying if I said that football was exactly my sport, none of the participants have wheels and there’s nary a V6 in sight. However, once every 4 years I join thousands of others just like me by watching a couple of preview shows, pretending I now understand every aspect of the game and picking a team to support post quarter finals (a decision usually based largely on shirt colour).
One thing that I remain an unabashed fan of is a good world cup anthem and Cambridge band The Free Kicks have put together a cracker that I thought I’d share here. The Free Kicks are made up of members of several Cambridge artists including our old friends Fred’s House and Josh Broadstone, star of some of Jim and I’s short films. As you might imagine with that combo it’s very silly and stupidly catchy. Enjoy!
Thanks to everyone who has bought Moon in recent weeks. Stay tuned for updates on Moon 3.
This week’s pick comes courtesy of the lovely Fred’s House. Fred’s House are a folk-pop foresome from Cambridge who play amazing, harmony infused pop that falls somewhere between Simon & Garfunkle and The Magic Numbers. Someone Else’s Road is their first full music video and is very silly in all the right ways.
The main reason for posting the band up is that they’re fantastic but the main reason for posting them up today is that they are launching their second EP “Looking Glass” at Proud Camden in London this Sunday. If you fancy spending an afternoon having a beer and listening to some chilled out music then pop along at 4pm to join the fun.
Oh, and you can download looking glass for free HERE and stream their other tracks, including some of the new ones, HERE.
Spring is here, so it’s time for the BBC to invade your television and hose you down with nature! Chris and Kate are reporting in from Kent with a bevy of treats from Mother Natures sodden loins, including a sad update on Robbie The Robin and a report of the perils of Dill.
This is the latest film from J.T. Eaton and myself. It’s for the 2 Days Laughter Festival this year and as such is a 5 min comedy film that was produced in 48 hours. It stars the wonderfully funny, rubber faced stylings of Paul Teeling and Rozi Owen who were, as ever, a total joy to work with. Camera work and special effects were done by Paul Wade and he deserves a lot of the overall credit for being the one that badgered Jim and I into doing the film when we really had a lot of other work we should have been doing.
The plan is to take the film to the festival next month and see if we can repeat some of the success that we had with Devil’s Fork. We shall keep you posted on how it goes.
One last thing, if the thought of Mr Eaton in a toga disturbs you, you may want to look away at some points.
