Spottiswoode & His Enemies: "English Dream" video, tour dates

NYC based story tellers Spottiswoode & His Enemies are sharing the band version of the English Dream album video (HD on Vimeo):

This version features the band in all but one of the videos. If the results vary in quality it's because twelve of them were shot in one day! All against the projected backdrop of British Council archive footage. Another insane Enemies undertaking.

Many thanks to the remarkable crew who spent a very long Saturday with us at St. John's Lutheran Church in Greenwich Village. Particular credit to Brian Dilg, our tireless Director of Photography, and to Kim Matela who wrangled together a wonderful assortment of period costumes for the entire band. Alas, Candace couldn't make the shoot since she was barely able to walk at the time on account of her busted knee - now replaced and healed!

We've shared some of these separately already. This is clearly overload. A journey from the Second World War to the Fifties, back to the First World War then on to the Seventies with the band dressed up as steampunks, beatniks, glam groovers and respectable middle-aged English gentlemen. Not for the faint of heart.
Live dates:
  • 05/21 "40 Story Radio Tower" Broadcast @ Mauch Chunk Opera House, Jim Thorpe, PA
  • 05/22 The Living Room, Brooklyn, NY (w/ Good Luck Mountain)
  • 05/23 B Side Ballroom, Oneonta, NY (w/ Good Luck Mountain)
  • 05/24 Felicia's Atomic Lounge, Ithaca, NY
