It was brought to my attention that to do a promotional video for a new song that a big budget was NOT paramount. I was told that if you have a good idea with just a camera and a computer you could knock something together.
Sell Out is a song which talks about the music industry today with our tongues firmly in our cheek and I immediately thought of the iconic Queen film clip, Bohemian Rhapsody, as a starting point for our video
So with a couple of lights, a torch, a table, a couple of chairs, a tripod, a camera, and some beer and tequila we were able to have a few laughs and create a home grown video for one of the songs off the new album, Gold Dust.
We had a ball making it. And it was fun and easy to do. Our album is available to buy for $20 directly from us and is also on iTunes and Spotify and other places where we make $.0000001 per play. Or we can mail a signed copy to you for $25 in Australia.
Please share the video and give us your feedback. Here’s some of the feedback we got already.

As a guitar teacher, I have a love/hate relationship with the four-chord song. On the one hand, the familiarity of common chord progressions can be warm and comforting. It can also be a lazy man’s way of writing a song. Sell Out says it better than I’m saying it here. Enjoy.
