I found some old Wild Pumpkins at Midnight backstage footage from a tour of Germany back in 1994, cut it with some recent backstage footage of another band I play in, Parne Gadje, and let my genius 17 year old nephew Zane Wilson at Wilson Visuals weave his magic with whatever he thought was gunna work. Pretty happy with it! Unreal Zane! Thanks!
My new solo album is finished! It's called SONGS FROM DAN and will be released first in August in Australia, then later in the year in Europe. This clip here on the home page is one of the songs from it. I shot it on my phone while recording the song - true ay. Thats Matt, Lucie and Grant who played on my album who you can see starring there in this epic cinematic production that cost me hours of stress in Final Cut Pro for Idiots. And also, Rowan the engineer at Matts' sudio makes a cameo appearance. Fine times. Im not in the clip. Im behind the scenes.
