“Morning Prayer” Official Video Launched!

If you had a very mild super power involving not blinking, and a friend with a flood ravaged, basketball court sized film studio, what would you do? Well, if you were us, you’d decide to record and film an entire song in a single night.

So, on a cool night in March a group of incredibly talented people descended upon the location.


(PS, not following the link to watch this in HD is a travesty of injustice to the cinematic camera and setup used! Then when you’ve watched it you can grab the MP3 here)

The first thing you would realise if you were part of this talented band of cohorts would be that derelict abandoned studios don’t have a great deal of electricity running through them.  Such people are resourceful, however, and thus prone to bribing the neighbours with a bottle of whiskey in payment for one night’s rent of a power point.  (resourceful people also seldom go anywhere without 100m+ of extension cables!).

Taking A Moment To Enjoy The Loveliness

The next thing you would come to appreciate is that if you put one person, one amp and one guitar in the middle of the room, then the reverb is unbelievable.

Reverb (reverb reverb reverb...)

After a while, you’d become hungry.  The only thing that will solve this hunger will be lamb and haloumi goodness from Lefkas.  Cider would probably help too.

You’d also figure out that there is a lot of fun to be had with camera dollys…which are essentially oversized skateboards in the right hands.  At this point, caffeine will become a staple.

Then, in the wee hours of the morning, it will all become worthwhile.  A bunch of good friends, standing around having a beer and laughing at how silly they were to lock them selves in a flood dust encrusted space for 1o hours.

Oh, Heaven...heaven is a place...

You’ll probably wet your pants laughing a hell of a lot too.

Jaymis: Rock Out Coach
This is the first official video, and I guess single, from the debut Cowper album out later this year.  We’re all really proud of it…we hope you like it too.

What can I say…my friends are amazing.
