Live performances from Martin John Henry (De Rosa) and L Space.
I have had the pleasure of working with Glasgow based band 'The State Broadcasters' for Olive Grove Records since the turn of the year. This work has been for the forthcoming single off their new album 'A Different Past'.
The video is being premiered by The Skinny:
The video is also viewable in the film section.
In 2016 De Rosa celebrated the tenth anniverary of the release of debut album 'Mend' with a one off performance of the album at CCA, Glasgow. The performance was accompanied by this film, directed by video artist and photographer Kris Boyle. The film was originally designed for projection and can be viewed online here for the first time.
Below are some stills from the film, the entire film can be viewed in the film section.
New collaborative work coming before the end of the year.
I was asked to make a short video by the Royal Mile Market traders to help highlight their current plight:
The video is viewable in the film section.
The Royal Mile Market Traders:
Everybody listen up! Here is a very important message regarding the future of our lovely market: a multi-million pound London company is trying to take the Tron Kirk from us to turn it into a themed gift shop.
We don't want this to happen and have contacted and spoken to our local councillors etc. to bring our case across.
Please help us out by signing this petition to further strengthen our case!
Save the Royal Mile Market!!

De Rosa Chip on my shoulder video Outtakes
'Spectres', which is the opener on our forthcoming album 'Weem'. The lines 'Together in the glow / Of parties years ago' and 'Out on a shire of ghosts' remind me of the working class family in which I grew up. The superstitious lyrics have more to do with our faith in each other than any specific belief in ghosts or anything spiritual. The visuals were made by Bellshill photographer Kris Boyle." - Martin John Henry, De Rosa
'Weem' will be released on 22nd January 2016 on CD / LP / Download via Rock Action Records
