A Little Gothic Gem

I first saw this video about 28 years ago and its impact has remained with me. I was delighted to find that some benefactor had a copy and had uploaded it to YouTube. No doubt many of you are familiar with the "art" of pop videos, but I truly believe that this one is something special.

It helps of course that I liked the work of the artiste, Lene Lovich, with her blend of horror-movie chic and eastern European mystique.

A good song and a great video interpretation. Enjoy it as I am sure that you will.

À bientôt

This is such a long time ago! We shot it in a studio just off Berkley Square - don't remember the name/address exactly, but a lot of makeup!
Good to see it again - it must be 25 years since the last viewing.

I had no idea it was not all-location effort - even in part; wasn't some of it shot in Highgate Cemetary?

Some great ideas there - and what a great single "Bird Song" was!

Sod the Law!

Music and Radio Blog Club

Radio Blog Club, a good friend for a while appears to be in some legislative difficulty...

However, in tribute to its brave effort, I shall leave the existing track on this page (which amazingly still works)

Sadly my Playlist no longer works (hence its removal) thanks to the absurd "Hadopi" legislation in France. Apologies to all.
