Stones Corner Club
Betty’s Back is the first of many collaborations from Stones Corner Club. And a sneak preview of what’s to come in future releases.
In this collaboration, Dean Gordan and I have taken a simple pop song that was written and recorded by myself, and performed by Vincent Perry (Drums), Nathan Seiler (Keys) Lloyd Barrett (Synths) and me Scott Gellatly on (Vox, guitar and bass). Then we have turned it on its head with an iconic setting, ridiculous props, a current world issue, and some good humor by great actors.
Stones Corner Club gives you.
