A post or two ago, I mentioned the animated film I’d composed and recorded some music for.

It was created by my brother, who can be found here.

Here is the film. Warning, it contains extreme puppet violence.

Today was a productive day. A musical day. My brother, Joe came round and we composed and recorded music for his new film ‘A Tale from the Endless Stair’, a bizarre and incredibly violent animation. Here’s a little trailer:

And here’s the music we recorded:

Download Opening Theme

Download Main Theme

Download Demon Appears

Download Demon in Heavy Metal

Download Moody background loop.

Download Demon Fighting.

The sharp eared amongst you might spot elements of our song ‘Demon’ in some of this. Joe has also used Demon over the end credits of the film, the finished version of which should surface soon.

PS. Have you joined our mailing list, so you can get into our fans’ area? Go on, you know it makes sense.

Last Thursday we took to the stage at the wonderfully named Fiddler’s Elbow near Chalk Farm Road, London, for the second in what should be far more regular gigs from We’ll Write.

The setlist was something like:

    Old Moon Face
    Measure of a Man
    Where Once They Had Hearts
    Trampoline Song
    Bleached Bone Fields
    One More Time Around

We played well considering the horribly hot and humid pub atmosphere did not agree with our guitars at all. There were little tuning problems along the way. However,all was good in the end, and people applauded in all the right places.

As you may know, we always send a mailing list sheet around at gigs for people to sign up. This week the sheet included the question ‘What is your favourite spaceship?’. Replies included the obvious – Enterprise, Apollo 13, Millenium Falcon; the dull – UFO; and the downright geektastic – Defiant and MOYA.

Thanks to all those who came to see us play, and a big hi, hello and a-hoy-hoy to the newest members of the mailing list.

ps. Pete appears to have changed the words to Trampoline Song yet again. Third version so far.

Last tuesday saw us take to the stage (well, performance area in the corner of the first floor) at Phibbers in the bleak, desolate, post-apocalyptic nightmare that is the Holloway road.

Here’s an extract from Pete’s blog, because I’m too lazy to write anything myself:

Also this week, the Tom and I returned to the stage to sing songs about robots and such. Some people actually came and saw us! We also covered Meat Loaf’s I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That), a performance of such unbridled silliness, certain members of the audience almost emptied their bladders where they sat. This is all part of our new sci-fi Jim Steinman rock-opera project, y’see. Because songs about zombies and trampolines obviously weren’t silly enough.

Last night I flew solo, playing a couple of We’ll Write songs and a few covers at an open mic Ben is running in Chingford. There were more people there than we ever really see at our own gigs, so I’m going to get the Tom to accompany me in the future. I really did love playing on my own for a change, though. As a bit of an experiment, I hastily sequenced a backing track using the Korg synth on my DS for 21st Century Pop Song by Hymie’s Basement, and that worked out surprisingly well. Maybe a bit too weird a song, but it’s certainly something I’m going to use more in the future.

So that’s all good, but the final chapter of Songs for the End of the World is now so far behind, and I’ve done fuck all about it for weeks.

In other news, yesterday saw the final filming for the Measure of a Man video. Here are some pictures. More can be found here :

Joe’s been doing all sorts of fun things for the Measure of a Man video!

As he explains in his blog post, Saturday was spent recording sound effects, taking new shots of the robot and making a cast of my face.

The cast of my face bit can be seen here:
