EDINBURGH BUG & OLD POP VID NEWS!
THERE’S A BUG ON YO FRINGE
Hey you! The blogsteady crew!
We’re taking BUG to the Edinburgh Fringe this year! We won’t be doing the whole 4 weeks because I’m no longer young/determined to be on TV/insane, but I’ll be there for the last 5 nights from 25th – 29th August at The Pleasance (10.30pm each night).
The shows should be around 90 minutes and will consist of my favourite music videos from this year’s London BUG shows as well as You Tube comments and a few of my own music and video bits and pieces, some of which would be familiar to people who have seen me doing non BUG live stuff recently. It’ll be more or less the same programme each night though the fun of doing a little run like this is shuffling things about and introducing new nuggets here and there from show to show. I’m a nugget shuffler.
I’m looking forward to being back in Edinburgh hugely. In many ways I feel I am Scottish. Half English, a third Australian and half Scottish. So I hope you’ll come and join me for what promises to be a very moving half-homecoming. Altogether now: “Och, Mr Henderson! You’re horting ma totties!”

Here’s a couple of old Adam & Joe directed music vids to get you in the mood. That’s my Dad (BaaadDad) in the Frank Black vid and the promos we spoofed in the Gorky’s vid were Addicted To Love, Bittersweet Symphony, Song Two, Firestarter and No Surprises. Though I have no doubt in my miniature mind that Frank & the Gorks would be happy for me to post these (they were the official promos in both cases), it’s a little nerve wracking to post anything with commercially available music in it nowadays. I feel as if You Tube is just waiting for me to put a foot sufficiently wrong and my channel will just vanish in a puff of fartsmoke one morning. I know I could just not post anything that was problematic, and indeed I have been holding back a few things that I think would increase the hotness of the rights water too extremely but really, can’t a guy have some fun with the music he loves after all the money the guy has spent and continues to spend on this shit? Especially as we have to watch ads in front of an awful lot of You Tube content now. (In Australian accent) Come on mate! Ease off! Yeah? Mate!? Daphne?
