Sparrow and the Workshop – The Faster You Spin
Never have I been more grateful to be out of town than when this was being filmed. Whilst it is pretty damn great to have a video on the label which involves George Bush and Tony Blair in knickers and suspenders, as well as a lingerie-clad David Cameron flicking the Vs at Alex Salmond, a lot of my pals were roped in to ‘appear’ in this one, and I was able to avoid this entirely by being in a different country. Phew.
Anyhow, it’s turned out brilliantly, so a massive thanks to the team who put it together. As you can see, it’s far above the usual production standards of the DIY shite we tend to cobble together, which gives me an odd sense of both pride and awkwardness. Does that mean we’re professional now? Nah.
Anyhow the album, Murderopolis, is out on Monday and we are what is technically known as very fucking excited. The band have a got a wee tour at the end of June to support the release and will be going on a bigger one in the Autumn, so don’t miss out on your chance to see them – they really are excellent live. All the dates are here, so have a look for when they’ll be nearest your place, and keep an eye on their site for the September tour dates too, once we start confirming them. Oh, and of course, don’t forget to go here and buy the album – it’s all about the money, after all. Cough cough.More: sparrow and the workshop
