Television performance of Mark Shaw’s debut 1990 solo single from the album ‘ALMOST…’
Mark Shaw attended the premiere of fantastic new British comedy film ‘Golden Years’ by Moli Films on April 14h at Tottenham Court Road Odeon [watch trailer here.] starring a truly stellar British cast including Bernard Hill, Virginia McKenna, Simon Callow, Alun Armstrong, Sue Johnston, Una Stubbs, Philip Davis, Brad Moore, Mark Williams and, Ellen Thomas.
The event was in aid of one of Mark’s favourite charities – The Born Free Foundation – who he has played and supported for 25 years under the brilliant leadership of the wonderful Virginia McKenna (who founded the Born Free Foundation with her husband Bill Travers) and for the last half-century has run it with her son, the president Will Travers.
For the last year Mark Shaw has been working on the film as Music Supervisor Consultant and, is proud and privileged to have done so.
“The film has an essential social message at its core – one to which I believe we should all pay heed and, it’s an important tale that needed telling as well as being a unique and hilarious new comedy. But as a British independant film, we of course had a very limited budget – which didn’t quite stretch to cover the cost of a license to use David Bowie’s original recording of his classic song ‘Golden Years’. And so, with a few close collaborators including Dee Ral, Clifford Slapper and my mates in Then Jerico including PJ Phillips and John Miller and, with the help and support of my amazing wife Laura, I’ve recorded a new version of the track under license from Sony Music. I produced the track, sang the vocal and mixed the track with my dear friends Moke Bennett and Pete Booker.”
We will be previewing Mark Shaw’s version of David Bowie’s ‘Golden Years’ here and, the Mark Shaw:ThenJerico facebook page when the film is released on 29th April 2016…
