Being David Archer
Here are a few of my favourite tracks - all my own work unless otherwise credited.
I have to start with the one that became a music video!
Let Me Drive My Car
This is about the tricky problem of trying to be green and save the world, but at the same time being unable to give up driving our cars. Seemed to me that the perfect person to sing this was Jeremy Clarkson but he wasn't interested, so I did it myself.
Recording and arrangement, piano and drums by the inspired Philip Bird.
Video by Richard Hetherington at Pocket Rocket.
By an amazing coincidence, as Dillie Keene of Fascinating Aida was writing 'Cheap Flights', I was writing 'Speedy Boarding'. They've had over three million YouTube hits. Now I've got to make the video!
Drive My Car
My Christmas Day
This came from a conversation overheard in a London pub. A man was moaning to his friend about Christmas, and the phrase I heard was, "So we're sitting by the side of the road in a broke-down Vauxhall Zafira waiting for the RAC..."
It Has To Be Sean
My homage to the 'quintessential' James Bond.
I Didn't Mail It
A spoof, but I just love being the entire band!
One for you Archers fans!
