    Following on from our collaboration with poet Tim Wells on our film, Robey, Craig Bilham and I have just finished this one with poet Jemima Foxtrot, who incidentally is up for the Arts Foundation Award. We filmed Jemima at her then home of Balfron Tower in East London (soon to be rid of all its pleb residents to make way for listed-Brutalism fetishising dosh digglers) as she performed her poem Bog Eye Man, faultlessly and repetitively until we got our act together.

      The stories in this film are told by the poet Tim Wells, a local to Hackney who agreed to be recorded by Craig Bilham and myself in June 2014. Over the month that followed, we took a number of journeys in around the west end of Seven Sisters Road and the now derelict Sir George Robey pub, attempting to trace the settings of Wells’ stories, collecting video footage and audio recordings that we felt had a connection to the words. The soundtrack also contains elements of Klaar and O.D. Davey recordings, as well as Mudie’s Mood, the track referenced by Wells within the film. Our main inspiration was dub music; highly manipulated, built upon and reshaped versions of original reggae tracks - the type of which Wells was raised on - their results often lilting, fading, echoing, full of interference like a memory of the original parts, momentarily lucid and confused. Wells’ stories themselves are a truthful account of the dirty fantasies and dirtier reality of a youth misspent in the pubs and parks of Seven Sisters Road during the 1980s, told with the poignancy of sentiment, despite it all. This film was commissioned by Rowan Arts for the heritage project Seven Sisters Stories: www.sevensistersstories.com This project was supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and Islington Council.

                    Television, from Catgut's' 2008 EP Scarlet Pantaloons, is a love song about a television. Director Craig Bilham is a digital video artist, and utilized the slow pace of the music to highlight the lyrics in a stylish and mesmerizing way, representing the "RGB" of television pixels in the video's colour scheme. Television was a 2009 Portable Film Festival winner, and will be featured in the PechaKucha event at SuperDeluxe@Artspace for the 17th Biennale of Sydney. superdeluxe-artspace.com.au/pechakuch/pechakucha_program/
