The video was shot in Haifa City with the help and support of the local crew.
The Inspiration behind the song and video is the feeling of living and being a part of the small community Haifa (a sleepy and almost neglected city in the north of Israel) but wanting more from life. (For Amit!)
Via I wrote on Facebook that this was proof that time heals MOST wounds. A friend who would know sent me this message: 'Nick & Polly get along ok, she turned up unannounced backstage at Hammersmith a few years ago and Nick's opening remark was "I suppose a fuck's out of the question ?" This broke the ice as it were'
Track from Black Cab's fourth album, Games Of The XXI Olympiad released November 2014.
1 Waldemar Cierpinski, East Germany, GDR Gold 2-09:55.0
2 Frank Shorter, United States,USA Silver 2-10:45.8
3 Karel Lismont, Belgium, BEL, Bronze 2-11:12.6
"It is now well known that East Germany operated a state-sponsored system of providing performance-enhancing drugs to as many as 10,000 athletes from about 1968 to 1988. Cierpinski was implicated by East German track and field research files uncovered by Werner Franke at the Stasi headquarters in Leipzig in the late 1990s.
As a result, 1976 silver medallist Frank Shorter has advocated the belief that Cierpinski cheated and has supported official review of past performances, i.e. considering stripping medals from athletes who are found later on to have cheated, as a deterrent to drug-cheats. Fourth-place finisher Don Kardong has also written that he believed Cierpinski was involved in the East German doping program. Shorter's allegations are very similar to those of Shirley Babashoff, who accused the East German women of drug cheating during the swimming events in the same Olympic Games."
"A man who was wrongly accused of possessing a video of a woman having sex with a tiger is attempting to change the law on "extreme pornography" in the U.K... The Crown Prosecution Service said it only recognized that it was a man when the tiger was heard on the soundtrack saying, “That’s grrrrrrreat,” just like Tony the Tiger from the Kellogg's Frosted Flakes commercials."
"Eight years went by, eight long years of waiting
'Til one day a tall stranger appeared in the land
And he came with lawyers and he came with great ceremony
And through Vincent's fingers poured a handful of sand"
