A new video, goodbye Horse, hello Jules & Missy!

A new video, goodbye Horse, hello Jules & Missy!

So, yes. It took over a year in post production to finish, but our new video is OUT. Ladies and gentleman, The Butcher. Direct Link to Daily Motion [xr4rsv] With nearly 20,000 in the first weekend, were pretty stoked! The song is a tale about a WWI captain struggling with the guilt of sending his men over the frontline to their certain death. It’s prog rock, it’s got horns, it’s got about 49 different parts. The video features DFATHOF in full WWI military uniforms and was actually filmed in the place where they do Downton Abbey and a bunch of other BBC and ITV programs. It’s got guns, explosions, and we even managed to squeeze in a hot girl. The most extraordinary thing about the video is that the cast and crew, as well as the location owner, all worked for free. It’s amazing what you can do with a strong will and determination to succeed. I’d like to thank every single person who worked on the video, especially Chris Lincé who directed, came up with the concept, and did all the editing and post production. The good news is that we’re already planning our next video with him… To celebrate the release we premiered the video at The Hippodrome club in Kingston and played a set after with our good friends The Lagan. The night was extra special as we say goodbye to long-term member Horse, who’s moving on to pastures new in a 23 year old Mercedes with a map of Europe. Here’s been with us from the beginning and we’re gonna miss him. A lot. Of course every...
Horns Of Fury Invade Southampton, plus Tom Bone’s new hobby

Horns Of Fury Invade Southampton, plus Tom Bone’s new hobby

Being in the music industry is a bit like wading through chest-high sludge whilst harnessed to a rabid donkey chasing a drowning rabbit in the opposite direction. Things take time. For the past year we’ve been working on 2 songs and 2 music videos. Soon mon droogies, they’ll be finished. And we’ll have a good cry. I have however written a song of my own for Jeff Vandermeer’s new anothology “ODD”.  You can read all about it here or watch the vid! In the meantime we have some gigs coming up in Southampton (@ The Hamptons) this Thursday 9th, and then The New Cross in London on the 17th June. We’ll be playing *BRAND NEW* material at these shows (like new upbeat ska number ‘That Guy’), so hopefully we’ll see yous there. In other news, Tom Bone has taken up the strange new hobby of collecting badger tails and stuffing his old pair of corduroys with them to create his own fluffy badger tail mannequins. His goal is to get them in every shop in Chissick, however so far he has only approached Poundland with his idea who dutifully declined. Poundland were unavailable for comment. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom...
Fun With Guns

Fun With Guns

DFATHOF have just returned from an action-packed weekend in the DFATHO-COPTA. We began by playing our furious pants off at the illustrious 100 Club in Oxford St., on Friday night. We were joined once again by our good friends The Lagan, and also new friends ‘The Really Bad Habits’. Three 7-piece bands in a row. Shityeahthatscool. We arrived back home in Kingston at approximately 2am and enjoyed a glorious 2-hour nap before getting up again at 4am to shoot a music video for our summer-release ‘The Butcher’. Horse managed to find not only some authentic WWI uniforms, but an entire field full of trenches! The Butcher tells the tale of an army captain and his struggle with guilt as he sends his own men over the frontline, with the knowledge that they’ll die. Cool, huh? So we got back in the bus and travelled to Ipswich. We arrived at 6am and met the fabulous crew led by director Chris Lincé. The rest of the day was spent in the sweltering sun shooting guns, traipsing through trenches, and yours truly doing a WWI striptease. here’s Tom Bone doing his sexy tractor dance. We finally got done about 11pm and it’s SOOOOO gonna be worth it. We’ll be releasing it and have a big ol’ launch party in the summer so watch this space. The single will be a double A side and also feature ‘The Cowboy’. In the meantime we’ve got a load of gigs coming up so check out our shows page and we’ll see you at the bar!...
