12 Oct Video Archive: Herman Dune – Musical Postcard
This is a strange one for me. Sublime acoustic performance by David Herman Dune, followed by an interview that makes me cringe. Why? Well it wasn’t upto the standard I like, I’m very self-critical. I always filmed the performances first and then the interview part, I was blown away by what was a one-to-one concert. Maybe that mixed with the audience mingling around us just threw me off my pace. Still, its a good watch. Songs performed are “My Best Kiss” and “Next Year in Zion”.
About the musical postcards series
The Musical Postcards series was born from the idea of wanting to do a very stripped back performance podcast; bands performing acoustically in a public-ish space, no microphones for pro-audio production, no multi-takes for multiple angles, just a performance as nature intended you to hear it.
I pitched it to Mark – my collaborator in crime up in Glasgow – and made a demo with the forever incredible Sky Larkin. Clash joined in and gladly gave the publishing platform. It’s been a few years since these all went up and presuming them lost somewhere in the archives on other sites, I’m now bringing them to the fore and placing them on my site for the first time.
