'i'm Fixing To Leave You'. Filmed on super8 in 1978 in the Sculpture garden of Wimbledon School of Art. Music recorded in the mixed media workshop at the same time as the Wilding's LP. Its not art, its just a randy old dog trying to get his end away in the snow, and not having much luck.
This Film was shot on super8 by 'The Wildings' and Lez Cooke in 1979, in and around Battersea Arts Centre, London. The Track 'Dance' was from the album 'Why Did I buy Those Blue Pyjamas', which was released at the time. The album was an early example of crowd funding - 60 people paid £10 each. The film was shown at the start of a Wilding's gig at Battersea Arts Centre. When it ended the Wilding's tore their way through the screen onto the stage and started the gig.
This was filmed on super8, in Romford market place 1978 by Lez Cooke. The sountrack is from the Wildings LP 'Why Did I Buy Those Blue Pyjamas', which was actually recorded about a year later. So trying to get lip synch was never gonna work.
