Walking Through An Alternative History Documentary Series.

 

Some of you may recall that I was putting together a documentary series, at the start of the year. Obviously since then, the planet went certifiable, and everything was put on hold. Fortunately I am able to get started on developing the series, but without the benefit of as much planning time.

Here is a brief description of what I’m trying to do…

I will be walking different routes around the UK, visiting sites of different historical importance, and talking to researchers.

Most, if not all documentary series like this one, have a select few historians, who tend to stick to their learned history. The kind you’ll find in textbooks approved by the state, and repeated as fact for generations. I’m more interesting in the theories that question them.

Here are the dates for filming, the routes and landmarks we’re looking to cover.

This song was written as part of the Arts Council Project ‘The Travelling Band’.

I travelled to Belper in Derbyshire and was tasked with writing a song that afternoon, to be performed that evening to the locals. This was my effort…

Action Over Hope

 

We’re due to film a few music videos for the Industry of Lives EP, in February.

But until then, this will have to do!

Industry Of Lives – EP & Merch Available Now…

 

My brand new EP is available now, at all the usual stockists. You can download the record from Bandcamp aswell (I get paid more reasonably by them!)

If you’re into Tees and Hoodies, I have knocked a couple of them up as well. Simply click on the thumbnail and it will take you to the product in my Rapanui store.
