This is a music video that was filmed by our very good friend when we played Worcester Gay Pride last weekend. It is very special to me that this came out (and so quickly).

Hi, I am Greg, and this is the last post I will be making from the Tumblr until next summer of 2014. I feel very special about the music video because I think it captures a lot of the things we accomplished, and for me (personally) the fun we had for the past 2 years as a wild and crazy band that makes no sense and apparently has no foot in reality. I will admit that I wish a few more people got into the shoot (both who were there, and who could not make it) who are essential to the band, but its very hard to control things like this. The whole day, and video shoot was an incredibly uncontrolled environment, and still turned out totally amazing. 

Ps- Contrary to popular belief this is NOT a new recording of St Peter. However, this is a wonderful excersize into how useful music videos are in revamping interest in older songs. It is the same recording from “I Hope You Have Fun While You Sleep” that was around before SFTD turned into a big crazy clusterfolk band.

Some of the speakerfolk are carrying on the band, so please get in touch with them if you want them to play a show. I am stoked to see what happens next. 

But really, I am stoked to watch this video over and over again.

See you next year

Greg McKillop
