Nick asked me to shoot a promo for The Last Prom’s penultimate show for the year. Each gig this year has been based around one of the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse – this Saturday (October 13th) is War’s turn.
Nick had the idea to make it a lock ‘n’ load montage, and we had fun twisting that to suit a drummer… that’s getting ready for prom… AND is the living personification of War.
The below is from their last gig – I didn’t film it, but had big fun editing it.
BMA cover-boy and chief Cracked Actor Sebastian Field joined us for a lazy drive down by the lake. To me this song sounds like Marc Bolan transmitted back from Mars. Can’t wait for Cracked Actor to release the band-assisted version.
Big Score, my loose-as-a-goose multi-singer-songwriter jam band played at the Phoenix on Monday night, to a crowd of equally loose long-weekenders
The band includes three of the best songwriters the ACT has going: Andrew ‘Drew Walky’ Walker, Beth Monzo (of Dub Dub Goose/Beth’n’Ben fame) and the gigantic showstopping voice and presence that is Cameron Ewens. Guitarist Jon Engel is the dynamo that got us going in the first place, and our truly incredible drummer Nick Peddle makes it all sound a lot better rehearsed than it actually is.
We’ve had a record in the works for a criminally long time, but for now it’s just a great great group to work out some tunes with.
The 13th of this month is the penultimate show in The Last Prom’s 2012 Apocalypse Sequence. It’ll be the last ‘gig’-style show and the last with our existing set of songs. The final show in November will feature 10 all-new numbers that detail the tragic love affair between Death and The Antichrist.
The theme of this show is War, so we’ll be decking out The Front Gallery to look like a fallout shelter. Luke is supporting under his King Handsome Luke guise, as well as The Sinbirds and the ever-amazing Dead DJ Joke.
Our last gig- The Nuclear Winter Ball- ended up being one of the funner dance parties I’ve ever been at, so I’m looking pretty forward to it.
