    Mike Badger - Jump Back Down Up Around


    I've worked with Mike Badger loads over the last few years and one of my to do lists says I've got to finish a little film I made with him called Ashtrays & Tables and get that online as the version shown last year at The Bluecoat needs a bit of tweaking! In the past we've done photographs and acoustic sessions for Routes Jukebox but this is the first promo video we've ever shot and it's for a song called Jump Back Down Up Around from his debut Shady Trio album called 'Lucky 13′. Nowt like a bit of rockabilly to brighten up a rain soaked Monday afternoon and I would like to thank David and Jackie Watterson for the jiving, Brian Farrell for his dancing too, Rebekah Pichilingi for looking after us at the Epstein Theatre where we shot the video, Brainface for editing and Sam Barlow for the loan of his fantastic 1964 Ford Galaxy! Please feel free to share this one and repost where and when you can.

    The Onset - Save Me


    Recorded by Liverpool's Onset in 1991, Save Me appears on Mike Badger's CD Lo Fi Acoustic Excursions, released by the Generator Label in 2003 (Gen9).

    Mike Badger recalls, My sister bought me a Sony walkman to record on. Save Me was the first song we recorded, live in the practice room on Aigburth Road. This recording captures the moment, it has a great feel to it, just rolling along.

    No film of the Onset performing Save Me exists, so I've had a go at a video collage! Characatures by Roger Llewellyn, photo's by Brian Morrow, film by George! Great fun to make. Hope you enjoy the sound, and vision...
