Vinny Peculiar - No reply

Vinny sent me over 'No Reply' to listen to, I loved the beautiful, wistful emotion. I was aware that a mate of mine, Leon Mook had created this masterpiece giant eyeball/alien head which had served as a personal audio visual sensory overload enviroment, but had since been decomissioned and was somewhat neglected. I really wanted to use it in a music video so when this track came along I knew that this odd character walking through the forest in Winter with a sepia effect would really suit the mood.  We filmed it in the Forest just behind my house on Blakeney Hill in the Forest of Dean, I walk my dog everyday thare and knew some great spots where we could film. I enjoy the challenge of working with a minimal budget (however would of course prefer a big stack of cash) and when you have limited battery power in the drone and a mate wandering around all morning in freezing conditions you dont have much time to get your shots, which adds to the authentic low fi B-movie feel. The funny thing is I was talking to Klute about doing a video and I came up with this idea for the track he sent me, when I pitched this story to him it was the last I heard from him ;-), but Vinny imediately was into it. It's nice to have built up a trust with Vinny, he just lets me get on with it.

I owe so much to Leon Mook for this too, walking about in a fake head in the cold, and supplying the centerpiece to my masterpiece!...and many thanks to Brian Drones for the cinematic angle, not bad for a mornings work.
