Colin Watson - Solitude

wordia.com, 2010

Not being in the habit of filming my own stage act, it never occurred to me to make any videos of myself in the guise of sixties surf rock legend Colin Watson. Especially when I shaved all my hair off - I was damn sure Colin Watson should always have hair, and shaving my hair off basically meant I laid the act to rest. So when Bob Pipe called to say he was doing videos of people explaining words for an online dictionary and he’d like Colin to appear, I was well aware that I didn’t really know how or whether the character would work on camera. But the idea turned out to be quite inspiring and I ended up writing and recording three short songs (each based around a different word) over a couple of days, then Bob came over and filmed them round my flat one sunny afternoon. The video for ‘Disparity’ was never uploaded but the other two appeared on the site towards the end of June 2010. The video for Buddy may be marginally funnier, I honestly don’t know, but I prefer this one for the tune - the nearest to Pet Sounds I ever managed to get. Sadly, Colin Watson seemed to be the kiss of death for the site, which ceased to be active almost the moment his videos appeared. Spooky...
