"bright like neon love"
Hey Mal, A good friend of ours, the great director Kris Moyes, directed our latest video, Going Nowhere and we think it's really something special. We didn't have much time to get it all done so Kris had the idea of doing the entire ideo in one shot so there was no need to edit it afterwards. This seemed simple enough but then he had the even crazier concept of having a guy do an interpretative dance while watching us play on TV. Tricky, since we've now got two rooms...totally different and the camera has to 'go through the TV'.

So, a day after our Homebake Festival appearance...and feeling rather worse for wear...we did the shoot in a converted art gallery in North Sydney. Crew were running around like crazy, it was 33 C outside and the poor cameraman had to wear this huge brace with the camera to be able to run between the two rooms in one clean swoop.

But after 12 hours of shooting and 7 full takes, Kris had his video and the weeks of preparation of putting together the impossible came to an end. We want to thank Kris and the guys for all their efforts and really want to push this video out there to as many people as possible.

Alas...we'll be posting it online very soon but if you go to...

you can vote for Cut Copy - Going Nowhere and get it into the MTV chart. ANYONE in the ENTIRE WORLD can vote and we encourage you to enter as soon as possible. The MTV guys have agreed to help us out, but need you to vote to get it into the running.

As a thank you. we've got copies of our Radio 1 Mix CD to send to those who vote. All you need to do is send our UK record label a self-addressed envelope with a stamp (please check how much postage you need to receive a CD from London...and make sure your envelope is big enough to hold a CD) too...

Modular Records, 19 Denmark Street, London, WC2H 8NA, UK.

Thanks in advance and we'll catch all the Big Day Out and Franz Ferdinand punters next week! More in our next email...
