We have never played this song live, and in fact it was written just the week before we went into the studio to record, so this video is the first time anyone has heard the song. The song ‘Mockingbird’ uses traditional American lullaby lyrics, and so to make a beautiful marriage for our single we decided to write our own ‘rockaby’ for the second song, with a PR&TS noir twist of course. We filmed the recording session in the SAE Milan studio, where we were pleased to work again with Ivan A Rossi, and the forest scenes came together in the Luberon region of Provence, with the help of director Zahim Albakri.
We hope you enjoy the clip, and look out for the release of the ‘Mockingbird’ video to follow next week.

We’re almost halfway done with our tour. So far we’ve been battling against snow, rain, sore throats and illness, but the show must go on, as they say. It has been amazing catching up with so many wonderful people along the way. We had a fantastic night at Mondo Bizarro on Saturday with Bed Bunker and Head On. Here are a couple of pics of us with the boss:
And not forgetting the awesome show at Ernee on Friday night, put together by the one and only Headsucker, and his beautiful wife Emma, who made sure that we left their town at least 3 kilos heavier than we arrived. Here’s a video of a song we just recorded at SAE with Ivan Rossi, a cover of the JC classic, Give my love to Rose. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for a new Beast Records release coming out soon in tribute to the man in black. This video is courtesy of Phil LaCleck, (merci Phil).
Pete had an unintentional night off last night to rest his voice, sorry Caen, but we’ll be back next time I promise. He has slept and dosed up on everything under the sun to try and recover for the rest of the tour. Thanks so much to Alex for all the help and honey. Tonight we head to Le Mans, tomorrow Paris. Hope to see you on the road.
An abandoned psychiatric hospital and a bizarre, derelict casino on top of a hill overlooking Lake Como are the two locations we used in filming our new music video. There are no traditional band with instruments shots, it’s more like a mini-film, shot by Italian director Viola Barbato.
We’d love to hear your thoughts, and thanks for sharing!

We’ve been working hard this month getting ready to play this next concert at Circolo Arci Ohibò in Milan, this Friday 28th September. We’ve got Alessio on the drums as usual, and we’re joined by Tommaso playing keys and doing some backing harmonies as well.
It’s not just our usual concert however, because we are finally ready to release our new music video. We worked with Viola Barbato, who also directed the last video of Il Genio (Tahiti) and we are so happy with the final product. It’s not your usual music video, so stay tuned, or if you are in Milan, come and see it Friday. Ohibò has a big screen!
… to go on a 3 day pizza and red wine binge, the director calls and tells you she needs a little bit more Lara Croft up near Lake Como to finish the video. Spoiler, yes? Well, you’ll see.
So this week will involve a little more filming as well as a morning in the studio for rehearsal. We’re looking forward to playing again after so much time out with recording and mixing and all that jazz. We’re writing again already, and should have some new songs in our live set before you’ve even heard this new album…
