21 Dec Video Archive: Mike Bones – Musical Postcard
This video from my work archive is the Musical Postcard featuring Mike Bones performing “Everybody’s Coming Down On Me” elect-acoustic at The Luminaire in Kilburn (long may she rest in peace – great venue). The interview was very enjoyable, Mike was open and keen to have a conversation. I think we ended up talking about the weather as it was thick with snow and – as has happened every time since – the UK ground to a halt and the media were telling us to panic as it was the end of the World. It wasn’t and we both found this amusing over a cuppa. Enjoy.
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.
