Hello to readers of ‘A Music Blog, Yea?’ This is Daniel from The Stagger Rats here to introduce the video for our next single ‘Maybe When I Get A Bit Older’. The song is about personal expectations I suppose, about putting a stop to the nonsense of youth and the fact that it’s not always possible or convenient. The video itself is a very tongue-in-cheek portrayal of a classic silent film scene in which the comely maiden is kidnapped and for some reason put on train tracks before being saved by the good guys and schnecking them. It was film at a farm-come-family park near Dunbar with the help of our good friend Glenda Rome. The shooting of the video was very in sync with the child-like theme of the song, a sort of refusal to grow up in a way, and, as you can see, we’re still struggling with that one. But have a look anyway and keep up to date with gigs and events we’re playing on our facebook, website, and twitter.
The Stagger Rats.
