We had a lot of fun during the making of this video! From picking up an old piano and hauling it out of a house, gutting it, welding wheels and seat, to rolling around the streets of London. The things we end up doing in the name of music! Massive thanks to Stuart Price for all his work including the concept, filming, piano construction and editing. Also to Randall Breneman for his help in the construction, filming and for housing the piano in his garage while the work was done…

Here’s a short video (all I could find!) of the making of the piano – Stuart Price welding the seat together, and the gutting of the piano strings – some haunting sounds. It felt quite wrong to destroy the piano even though it was a knackered old thing.

And a few photos from the endeavour:

To be honest, I tried to write a song about the experience, involving stress and angry-for-no-reason landlords, but I just didn’t manage to get one out in time.

Paul Jones played ‘Call On Me’, from ‘The Curious Case Of Paddy Milner’ on his BBC Radio 2 show last night, the first radio play for the new album!

You can catch the show again on the iPlayer at www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer – go to Radio 2 and look for Paul Jones. The original show was yesterday, monday 13th at 7pm.

I’ll be recording a live session on July 11th for BBC Radio 2 in July for broadcast later in the year…
