- "Archangel are a brilliant new band.
That’s not strictly true. They’re not really a band.
But you can keep the bit about “brilliant”.
Archangel is the brainchild of Nick Webber, a young man from west London with a strong will and a warped imagination who spent a year and a half going quietly mad in the wilds of Wiltshire as he recorded his masterpiece aka the soundtrack of his life. The album in question and the answer to your prayers, How To Lose Your Best Friend, comprises 11 magnificently overwrought and dramatically fashioned songs that explore the lexicon of love with an epic sweep and neon glow that will remind you of all your favourite 70s and 80s groups while sounding utterly contemporary. Archangel – whose name comes from a scene in the film Apocalypse Now! – are where ABC meet Arcade Fire."

Without doubt the last couple of weeks have been the most exciting for Archangel. I can assure you that treats are coming your way. A double 'A' side single with videos for each by pretty much the hottest young British director, a tour to come and frankly the most fun I've had in ages..
Today I was filming part of one of the videos, which involved being strapped to a dentist's chair with post-it notes coming out of my mouth all in stop frame animation. Going to the dentist is bad enough but having one's mouth wedged open for several hours whilst someone points a huge camera at you and someone else stuffs your face full of animated pieces of paper borders on, at least at the time I felt, a reasonably long spell at the 'Scrubs.
This very same director for the other video, just two weeks ago (during all that snow and ice), attached an enourmous bodyrig with a huge camera to my torso and got me to lip sync without snapping my spine.
Don't get me wrong because I am not complaining. Yesterday I saw some rushes of both videos and was truly astonished by the footage. The guy is a genius.
Anyway, very soon, we'll be putting up the new videos and announcing some dates. I am thrilled by some of the comments that have been left here recently. Thank you for listening and taking the time. I hope that you enjoy what we're preparing for you for the next few months...

Ok so erratic though I have been about this blog, at least I am consistent...
Last month I took the plunge and went to Guatemala off the back of one of the most bonkers and beautiful treatments for a video you're ever likely to read and filmed the promo for the song How To Lose Your Best Friend (the title track of my long player).
The experience was indescribable. Enough said.
The video will be hitting your screens, TV and Computer alike with any luck, in the next couple of weeks and I hope you enjoy it (nearly) as much as I did going there to make it...
You may have heard the song on the radio a bit and on the telly as a goal scoring underscore just yesterday.. Amazing what you can achieve with two hands and a piano and anyone that's prepared to listen.
So thank you, I hope to see you at a show soon, watch out for an inconsistent bloke in a video made in one of the most glorious countries on the planet and lots of luv,
