This is the first clip from my new band. We’re based around a character called Duke Batavia, a ukulele playing Dutch-Indonesian sailor and scoundrel who died in 1967. So we wanted the clip to feel old and new. We made it using a 99 cent iPhone app, a scalpel and a bottle of scotch. Look out for a cameo from the young Tielman Brothers towards the end.
