On Saturday the 16th of April the Swan Pedalo was set free on Dukes Dock.
We simply asked that he/she/it would let some musicians ride on her back for a few hours.
She carried my band, Elfin Spurs (shown here), Alex Mountaineer & Greedy Jesus amongst others.
This song is called ‘Fire moving slowly’ featuring Sofie Roberts on vocals & Chiz Turnross on Guitar, (I’m on drums).
We had a bit of a technical hitch with Sofies vocals so we had to overdub them, but you get used to that after a while, I like to think it’s a bit Top of the Pops.
More videos will follow.
This was what we did with a turn up and play approach to using the Swan as a platform to make music, what could be done with a bit more preparation?
I’d like to recreate that Pdiddy video in which he rides a jet ski..
