From The Inside Out

I remember talking about doing this on leap year day 2008 and it will all commence tomorrow.

I feel that no matter what people say and where their allegiances lie, something very exciting has been happening on the London music scene in the last couple of years. I feel that being a musician in a few bands right now is exciting even though the main crippling fact about it is the lack of dough on offer...However every interview/article that I read on the London music scene doesn't satisfy me and people still get it wrong despite you spelling things out in black and white. Hence I've decided to do a film documentary on it - From The Inside Out.

I haven't scripted or planned anything. I don't think that's the way I want to do it. I just want to be an observer but probe those who I feel can shed more light on everything. It's just going to be me, my camera and London's music. That's all there needs to be really. No flashy sets or staged antics. Just life, the way I have seen and lived it over the past year.

Filming commences tomorrow on my return to London.

Favourite covers!

There is more than one way to skin a cat….


The Breeders doing ‘Happiness Is A Warm Gun’ is one of my favourite covers. I love how they add an extra ferocious, raw energy to the song. It seems so much more brutal and unhinged but in quieter moments, there’s this lulling quality about it before it rips your guts out. Wow!

The Breeders – Happiness Is A Warm Gun

THE ORIGINAL! The Beatles – Happiness Is A Warm Gun

In another twist why don’t you make a video about it?

Video artist, Pipilotti Rist used the opening lyrics as a basis to one of her video pieces. ‘I’m Not The Girl Who Misses Much’.
