“Whitby Ontario is bleak, suburban sprawl, it’s made skids out of bored kids here. Manning Hill is the biggest hill in our town, one we’ve always skated and tried to conquer.
We’ve released the video for the song Manning Hill. We made it together on practically nothing.
I met the director Justin Singer at bible camp a few years ago, found him on the internet in the fall to tell him about this Smashing Pumpkins inspired video I couldn’t get out of my head. Luckily he wasn’t brain washed like some of our old pals and was up to put pennies on train tracks, shave someone’s head, tattoo SORRY on our drummer Sam, run around Whitby with all of us.
The video exceeded my hope.
This summer we’ll be releasing the video with a series of shows in record shops, on rooftops, and around.
Kate Parks and a bush party we’re having here in Whitby.”
This video’s for Whitby, and all the places like it.
