The Zombies Are Coming
Some of you may be hearing the new Piney single Oh Lies on 6 Music – and thank you 6 Music for playing it! We are well chuffed that it’s out October 10th! If you want to hear it now you can stream it on soundcloud innit? http://soundcloud.com/search?q%5Bfulltext%5D=piney+gir I’m a bit new to sound cloud, I hope I’m doing it right… I have my trusty Guy Friday to help
Meanwhile we’ve been everso busy making a video for Oh Lies…
Here are some frightening photos on flickr
I have to totally big up Mike Smith our bass player for directing and filming it! WOW! Corin Hardy is editing it as we speak; he’s done some pretty amazing things see? http://www.corinhardy.com/about, David Lupton did the scary make up http://www.david-lupton.com and Joe Smith our drummer was our production assistant (which mainly meant swatting the bees away from the fake blood made of maple syrup and red food colouring – bees love it!).
What’s magical about these four boys working together is that they were making horror films on Super 8 when they were kids and we’ve reunited them to create this zombie featurette in the same way they used to work, on Super 8 film, shot sparingly. Soon the magic will be unveiled and I’m just bursting to see what it looks like! Meanwhile these photos will just have to do.
Patience is a virtue they say.
p.s. here’s a little trivia for you… Piney forgot to take a change of clothes to the video shoot and had to ride the train home from Brighton-across London covered in blood… there were many stares but nobody called the police, phew!
