MTV were "filming a promo for a new US Series and we are trying to show off everything quintessentially English"
So a few of us went up to Camden to some studios and were filmed doing a stick dance.
we kept drifting to one side which was a mystery, till we noted that we were lining up on John playing his concertina rather than the camera - instinct of years dancing rather than it being a sloping studio
We had our noses powdered in between quintessential cricketers and tattooed builders
I thought I had a photo from as we emerged from the studio but if you picture 5 morris men surrounded by loads of complicated lighting equipment projecting a rosey background behind us.
Hopefully one day we'll get to see the promo, or maybe it's a station ID or whatever.
