The theme for this video is inspired by the Doctor Who story Shada, and recreates The Fourth Doctor (the Tom Baker one!) being chased around Cambridge on a bicycle by a giant white blob. Special effects meant we could get the giant white blob chasing though we couldn’t quite manage the barbershop quartet in a doorway! A ludicrously long scarf as well as the charango was too impratical but there is a McCoy era tank top and a Davidson era celery stick!
Without further ado … the music video to the song MISSING U by Karmadillo.
Many thanks to Rob Kemp, who directed the video early on a Sunday morning and figured out the locations for the original scenes from Shada – Thanks!
There has been a bit of a hiatus but now the winter is over, Avarice the charango has crawled out of her hidey hole and once she’s had a couple of whiskeys will be ready to hit the road again.
More will come – See the EVENTS PAGE for full details.
There were a couple of reviews made of the John Otway show last week in Cambridge, and a couple of nice Karmadillo mentions in some of them 😉 I had a great time, and really enjoyed Otways show.
From Cambridge Local Secrets:
It’s just as well that Otway is so good because support act Karmadillo was a hard one to follow. He plays a charango, which is a small guitar originally designed to be made out of an armadillo, although his one is made out of mere wood: ‘Anything hairier than my legs shouldn’t be a musical instrument’. He performs witty, often tender songs, of a kind that would go down well as an interlude in a Radio 4 chat show.
And from Slate The Disco:
Also deserving of a mention is support act Rishi, aka Karmadillo who performed songs on topics ranging from zombies to ageing porn stars on a mini guitar called a charango traditionally made from an armadillo shell. His gentile eccentricity and sense of humour made him the perfect warmup for Otway’s comedy rock and roll show.
A first Professor Karmadillo recording of the new year is now up and available to listen to on our Soundcloud page. In fact, this little number on genetic screening is available as a free download – just use the player below!
The events page and calendar is now up and running on the new look website. Why not check out details for the Return of Karmadillo to the Cambridge Music scene! Free entry at the Elm Tree on Feb 16th 2014.
A video lament for the lost Ashes, set to sad song that is Australia….
