Well… here it is then…
The ‘video for ‘CANCEL IT… I’LL SEE HIM ON MONDAY’
(my favorite song on Queen High Straight)
If there was radio DJ justice in the world, this song would be on maximum rotation playlists in every nation! And.. we’d all be singing the damn chorus again and again and again!!!
When I wrote this song, which is track 18 of 20! (can you imagine having a eureka moment this far into the songwriting process of an album?!!) I ran outside shouting “I’ve done it! I’ve done it” – a perfect song!
Complemented, infinitely, by the playing of James Sclavunos on drums/percussion, Harry Bohay on bass, James Sedwards on lead and rhythm guitar, Alex Ward and Terry Edwards on horn section, Louis Vause on accordion and me on vocals, backing vocals and keys….
Expertly recording engineered along the way by Ian Dowling, Joe Sage, Al Lawson and mix engineered by Tim Morris
and now……. THE VIDEO
Filmed and Edited by David Leigh Dodd
(he also did all the photos for the album presentation by the way)
Make Up by Domitilla Coni
We shot in Fabrica di Roma on this deserted and perfect train track… we climbed into the old railway through a gap in the barbed wire fencing, despite CCTV warnings, dumped our bags of make up, lightings, tripods and so on and started in before the thunderous rainstorm hit us two hours later.
I was sold by the station itself – that lovely Roman yellow washed stone and the overgrown train tracks, but when we discovered a discarded old train carriage a bit further down, then providence truly smiled upon us, as it always does when one embarks on an unknown adventure!
I LOVE IT!!
