Edwyn Collins + Goldfrapp + video = OMG VIDM@$Hez!!

Even though the actual track didn't exactly get much of a reaction, which I should have expected, I've wasted even more of what little remains of my life by putting the below visual accompaniment together.  So...

Imagine Goldfrapp & Edwyn Collins were making records in early 1969 (they weren't).
Imagine they made one together - vocals from her, music by him and his band (they didn't).
Imagine she went on the BBC1 pop programme 'Beatscene' - which never existed - to promote it (she didn't).
Imagine the 2" 405 line VT master was wiped, like most of the BBC's 1960s pop music coverage, and the only surviving copy was on a 16mm telerecording (it wasn't).
Imagine it was dug up by BBC2 for their 1991 retrospective series 'Sounds Of The Sixties' (it wasn't).
Imagine the show was repeated by BBC Four in the early 2000s (it wasn't... well, it was but it wasn't, y' know).
Well, it might have looked and sounded something like this:

Now, if I'd only badly sync'd up some live Beatles footage to some dance track or other instead, I'd be an internet sensation. Ah well. Sod it. I'll never learn...

This is one of the funniest websites I have ever read. You are a comedy genius. Mr Coogan I presume? Seriously!? If you can't try hard try harder...love it!

I think you have surpassed yourself here mate, the attention to detail is fantastic - the DOG, the 'Temporary Fault' card, the analogue camera blur and blooming and VT effects (from real VT too!). The tune is a cracker too. Nice to see it's got a bit of recognition from the artists too.

Thanks for putting the 'Quiller' edit back up too - my old copy somehow got corrupted. Can't beat a bit of funky clav, brass and synth.

Very nice one Sir/Madam! Ingenious. I enjoyed it very much, glad I found it.

If that's Mr. Collins typing, then I must thank *you* for making such a damned good song (and LP, come to think of it) in the first place. It's wonderful to see/hear you back doing what you do, and I'm chuffed that you like my effort (not to say a tad flabbergasted!)

Best wishes! Ben sH
