The “Kung Fu” video was directed by the late Great Steven Wells at our gig at New Cross Venue and around Chinatown in Soho. It was a pretty busy day as I remember; we also supported Supergrass at the Astoria that evening for an XFM broadcast. The video really sums up the song and the craziness of our gigs at the time. The video may or may not show a glimpse of my future wife who was down the front for the New Cross show. Rick

Tim streams new single “Vigil”

Tim Wheeler has posted an audio stream of the first single from his upcoming solo album Lost Domain. The track “Vigil” can be heard above. Tim said of the track:

It’s about the actual time that my dad died and we were at his bedside. We were by his bedside for three days, holding his hand, some of us sleeping on the floor and watching the sun come up over the mountains outside every morning. It was a really hard time, but kind of a beautiful time as well, with the closeness of the family. We were glad that we all got to be there and share that time together.

Tim will be heading to New Hampshire this weekend to shoot a promo video for the single.
