Let’s Move Somewhere Else is the first single by French/Mancunian band Rubberbear, consisting of Tom Chapman (New Order) and Steve Trafford (ex-The Fall), and for their debut EP they are joined by producer / programmer Phil Birchenall. I was fortunate to be part of the roll-call of local faces to form a moving portrait of human emotion by friends Jan and Emily, who form the creative partnership TAPE. It also stars the well respected and highly talented actress Maxine Peake (Channel 4′s Shameless and Red Riding, BBC’s Silk). The brief we were given – before being left alone with the camera – was to think of a place, imaginary or otherwise, where we would rather be. So I was pleased to have made the final cut, but surprised to appear at the very start! That’s me, in the back alley behind my house. Thanks Jan and Emily, and thanks to Rubberbear for the opportunity to appear alongside such a great track!
The track, ‘Let’s Move Somewhere Else’ was released along with the EP on the 1st of April and is available on iTunes.
