The Mekons - Cockermouth

Promo video for Cockermouth from the recent Mekons CD, Mekons NATURAL.Filmed in Mid Wales, North West Scotland & Leeds.Includes introduction by Patrick Eyres, the songs mentor.

Jon asked me if I'd make a promo video for something off the Mekons Natural, because half of them were in the states,and I was in the UK, I decided to do it with masks - something that's becoming a trait of mine - jon sent me some small jpegs and then with the help of a photocopier and some masking tape, the video was made.

Live footage from 30th Aniversary Leeds City Varieties - available on DVD 2008 .
