The The "Sweet Bird of Truth" live WIP rough cut

This, by permission of Mr Matt Johnson, is part of an ongoing project I am doing with The The. Filmed by yours truly at the  Albert Hall, London, on their epic "comeback shows" of 2018, it shows the band at their sharpest and most powerful, with the songs stripped down to their bare essences making them as relevant to today as when first recorded. Put it this way, as those who were lucky to be present will tell you, this ain't no lame regurgitation of former glories. Matt's lyrics - deeply personal and often political - stand the test of time, often being prothetic of "things to come" at the time they were written. Watch this space for more updates on this project, plus our documentary to capture the band's recording of their first album in 16 years.

**We are currently editing this project and Matt will announce when it sill be released in 2021.**
