Shake Rattle and Roll

  • Published in Videos

Writing this song I guess I was in a nostalgic mood for the rock music of my youth. So for the making of the video I dusted off my old biker jacket in an attempt to look as ‘rock’ as possible. Funny to think that’s what I used to wear in one of my old bands. Times they are a’changin...GR

The Man trilogy

  • Published in Videos

Some of the Red House music was never intended to be played as a band. I’ll have been messing about on the guitar or bass or been inspired by a drum sample and then taken it from there. The trilogy of videos - The Man, Journey to the end of the night.and If you close your eyes you’ll see me - are such bits of music. Essentially these videos tell the story of someone going insane. You have the “normal” guy slowly being taken over by his destructive alter ego.

My Kinda Time

  • Published in Videos

The street featured in this video is Vila Berta in the Graca barrio of Lisbon. It’s quite beautiful, lined with Portuguese tile-work and ornate iron-work and dripping with blossom-laden shrubs, though they are somewhat over-supplemented by the all-pervasive plastic flower. The street is quite famous in the city: the terraced houses were built in the early years of the 20th century as homes for workers employed by the industrialist who himself lived in the big villa on the corner, Joaquim Francisco Tojel. Berta was the name of his only daughter.

Blues on the Rocks

  • Published in Videos

Hace unos meses Geoff y Maggie me preguntaron si me gustaría aparecer en el vídeo de Redhouse “Blues on the rocks” dando vida a alguien que vive en la calle. Lo tenían todo muy bien pensado y estructurado: dónde rodar, las tomas que teníamos que sacar (durmiendo entre cartones, bajo la lluvia en la calle...).

Drifting

  • Published in Videos

I was about to embark on a river cruise from Amsterdam to Berne in Switzerland when asked by Geoff to take some video footage of the cruise to provide footage for one of his music videos. We set off following the Rhine and immediately one of the main problems was the inability to use my new camera at all, let alone in some kind of artistic manner.

A Man Alone

Our “man alone”, Juan, former bass player with Red House, is as at home in the mountains as he is in front of the microphone. He likes walking, serious walking, though not generally on his own.

Looking for Chinaski

  • Published in Videos


Friends from Sheffield visiting Gijón sometimes go home with more than a few holiday photos to bring back the memories. Jim Harrison and Stan Duke, both teachers, were talked into wandering in and out of various bars in the city while we filmed them; unfortunately time was short and they didn’t always get to sample the wares. As in the video, in real life they never managed to coincide on their bar-stools as they weren’t even in Asturias at the same time let alone in the same bar.

Strange Times

  • Published in Videos

What to me was really strange was that this song was written at all: it was my first ever attempt at lyrics and I wrote them only because I had promised to have a go at a time when not everything in the water was going swimmingly.

New Red Hat

  • Published in Videos

Our first venture into making videos to amplify some of our songs turned into a great night out, with lots of friends on hand to help out in our paparazzi scene and then later raise a glass or two to the whole fun adventure. In the end I raised a glass too many: supposedly the art director - I believe I took quite a bossy approach to the role - I irresponsibly abrogated responsibility for filming the final sequence in favour of some warming if increasingly voluble conversation with the cast.
