An Eagle To Saturn

Look! My first pop video! This was all filmed by me and Matthew from Song, By Toad, it was great fun to do and I’m really chuffed with how it’s turned out. The song is the title track from The Leg‘s new album, An Eagle To Saturn, which you can buy now from Song, By Toad Records, and buy it now you should. 

Here are a few photos I took during the video shoot, too..





Paul Vickers & The Leg

Mary King’s Close

Edinburgh

The infamous Paul Vickers & The Leg made a rare appearance in the spooky surroundings of Mary King’s Close in the catacombs under Edinburgh’s old town. They played unamplified, relying instead on the natural echoing effects of the ancient stone chamber 30-odd of us were seated in to add volume to their sound. It was, typically, a wild, bewildering and unhinged performance, and brilliant too.

 





The Ides Of Toad

Featuring The Leg, Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six and Zed Penguin

Henry’s Cellar Bar

Edinburgh

Our infamous amphibian friend was out and about again in March with another slew of Ides Of Toad nights. I caught this show at Henry’s featuring Zed Penguin, Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six and The Leg. The evening had something of the pagan ritual about it, and swung dizzyingly from the captivating to the terrifying. Just another night out with Toad then.
