It All Falls Apart – My New Music Video For Piefinger

Video


Piefinger are a folk band from North London. They made a real cracker of an album last year called A Countryman’s Favour, and approached me to make a video for the song It All Falls Apart. I went away and came back with this idea, and they were really up for it and trusting throughout the whole process… it turns out they’re great actors in addition to being great musicians and songwriters.

The Warmth of the Room

On the eve of his return to Hiroshima, Teppei Tanino put on a farewell show at the Betsey Trotwood, in Farringdon, London. He invited some of his favourite artists from the Virtually Acoustic Club, run by David Sherwood, to play with him for what was a very special Friday night. Eiks, Tom Poslett, Mike Rosenberg, Michael Dunnigan, Louise Loft, Silver Sam, Piefinger, Anna Giles, and Lyle and I each played a couple of numbers before Teppei came on at the end of the night and played a beautiful hour-long set (with two encores). It was a fantastic beautiful evening, and though my photos don’t do the night justice, you get the idea.
Teppei often talks about how his music will die when he returns to Japan. I wish he had more faith that, given time and a bit of luck, his songs will find just as enthusiastic an audience over there as he has found in London.
You can hear his beautiful music here: teppei.bandcamp.com/
