Christopher Cockerell’s Kitchen

This ambient video was made as part of the promotional video for the band’s upcoming Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for pressing and printing Arcane Empire. Spot this footage in the background of the promo when the campaign is launched in the next few days. Christopher Cockerell was the inventor of the hovercraft, doing his early experimenting in his kitchen, giving the name for the track on Arcane Empire that the band used to make the soundtrack for the film.

Pressing Matters

Preparations for releasing the album have moved into the next phase. We have more music than can fit on a double LP so we’re selecting and cutting, but don’t worry – whatever we leave out we’ll make available for downloading. We’ve started work on mastering and quotes have been coming in for pressing and printing so we’ll be making a decision shortly. We’ve also been making videos promoting the album – these photos show filming for the latest one, to be released very soon, featuring talented friend of the Hovercraft Mary Macbeth.
