The Pop Group – Savage Sea


At Sea Change festival earlier this year I joined The Pop Group for a one off performance at High Cross House on the Dartington estate.

Today Mute announced the re-issue and definitive of the debut  from The Pop Group ‘Y’.

The film above is of the song Savage Sea taken from our perfomance at Sea Change and heralds the release of this seminal album. The film was edited by Mark Stewart and myself.

It was filmed by Paul Newton & Milo Alexander Travers and recorded by Andrew Paine.
