17 Nov Video Archive: Eugene McGuinness – Musical Postcard
This video from my work archive is the Musical Postcard featuring Eugene McGuinness. Songs performed are “Fonz” and “Dear English Reserve”, with a short interview between the tracks. We met for this video in The Social, W1 a few years ago.
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. There are some gems to come.
