Sarsparilla in “Rowboatcop : The Unreleased Movie”

Sarsparilla in “Rowboatcop : The Unreleased Movie” from itison on Vimeo.

a long time ago, in a particular direction in the digital depths of analogue time and space, a music video was made.never seen before. never before released, that is, until now. presents..Sarsparilla in

This video was shot in January 2008 and lay on a drive in a half edited form for quite a while. I had to make a small amount of footage go a long way (in more ways than one!). In an attempt to clear some backlog from the creative pipe (yes there is further back to go!) I am putting this out there as is now. I should say that these ‘projects’ are all self initiated for the sake of art.

I think a good addition to it may be some comic titles.. suggestions welcome in the comments.

The track is from Sarsparilla’s first album “Karahee” released on the Alphabetset label in 2007. Be sure and check it the new album “Slave To The Cat Gang” via Myspace…

from the Whiskerino About page

Whiskerino first surfaced on my internet radar back in 2008. That year’s contest had recently finished and I thought that it would be a real cool thing to do next time round, so I put a note in my calendar in the future. The future arrived in 2009. The start date was November the 1st and I had begun a journey. I shaved away my regularly appearing facial hair. Mackle, the leader of the beard pack was very kind to let me in after the site had reached it’s 400 beard original capacity on the opening day (eventually there was over 500 participants). Given the time zone difference I had allowed myself some extra time before I uploaded my first photo. It was 3 am eternal. I was in Whiskerino.
