In These Shoes? I don’t think so!

It’s the last day of summer, so it’s time to send it off in style with Kirsty MacColl’s footwear-themed classic! “Should I buy some Barbie dolls?” asked Andrea. “Sure, and now you can learn how to do basic stop-motion filming,” I replied. Hope you enjoy this video as much as we did making it!

Almost Heaven, Aberdeenshire…

During Andrea’s recent visit to Scotland we went out into the wilds with our vocal recorder and did a series of four “Roadside Sessions” (see earlier posts) – however, when we were recording John Denver’s “Country Roads” the lack of West Virginia in north east Scotland led us to play around with the words … and naturally we had to see how far we could take it. So here’s our tribute to Aberdeenshire, and its oft-frigid weather. 😉

We’re off to Never-Never Land!

In October last year, we invited you wonderful folks to send us some song suggestions, and you obliged with some forty titles for us to choose from. Owen’s old university pal Dave sent a fistful of amusing suggestions, ranging from Wham to AC/DC to Abba to Rick Astley, though I daresay he didn’t think we’d actually tackle Metallica.

So get your leathers on and dive into the darkness of childhood nightmares with ENTER SANDMAN… And a slightly belated happy birthday to you, Dave. 🙂

Oh, and also, this video required 11724 miles of air travel to make. 😉
