News about the shooting of the video for "Dirty Sticky Floor"

Seen on the DMMB from BRAT :

After getting the required two hours of sleep, and putting up Martin's tour dates on his site, I sped down the 101 (a joke - traffic was quite heavy) for a 7:30 am call time for the video shoot. The video shoot for the first single from David's forthcoming solo release, "Paper Monsters".

If you were in Malibu yesterday, driving down P.C.H., saw a big film crew (there were actually three in Malibu yesterday), and heard David's first single, then you were near El Matador State Beach (32100 PCH, Malibu). I got to the location at 8 am (Mustangs go fast, but not when there is traffic).

When I got there, David was getting ready to do down to the beach (a true hike, which, by the end of the day, proved to be the main reason I am typing this while in deep muscle pain, and a nice lobster red sunburn). Hours of shooting was done on the beach (which I captured for future site use - video and images). Later, towards the end of the shoot, the final shot was more "performance" based.

I can not really give details now, but what I saw the director(s) shoot yesterday should make for a very good video. The camera angles, and the acting/performance from David was spot-on.


The directors names are still unknown and all was shoot then on March 20th 2003.

28/02/2003 : DAVE GAHAN revient en solo

Après 22 ans passés aux côtés de DEPECHE MODE, DAVE GAHAN se lance dans une carrière solo. Son premier album solo, 'Paper Monsters', sera disponible dès le 3 juin prochain, précédé deux semaines plus tôt du single 'Dirty Sticky Floors'.

DAVE a écrit les dix titres, avec l'aide de son ami multi-instrumentaliste KNOX CHANDLER. Produit par KEN THOMAS (SIGUR ROS), 'Paper Monsters' a été enregistré en grande partie à New York, et constitue une toute nouvelle expérience pour DAVE : "Ce qui m'a le plus frappé, c'est à quel point ça m'a rendu joyeux et comblé", raconte Dave avec un sourire. "J'avais envie d'entendre quelque chose qui rende heureux. C'était ma priorité et Ken m'a totalement compris là-dessus." Au programme également : une tournée européenne à partir du 5 juin, puis une tournée aux Etats-Unis pour le reste de l'été. DAVE sera à Paris (Olympia) le 4 juillet, puis le 6 aux Eurockéennes de Belfort.
