Bang, Bang, Bang! It’s Gary Edward Jones

GARY EDWARD JONES’ channels many of the great songwriters of the last 50 years; from the laid back melodies of the Californian halcyon days to the British folk giants like John Martyn and Nick Drake. A packed St Georges Concert Hall in Liverpool, at the end of 2014, for the launch of his “The Cabinet Maker” album was testimony to the established popularity Gary enjoys on home turf. Since then the momentum has continued with sell-out gigs throughout Merseyside, Chester and The Midlands. Now, in something of a homecoming, Gary launches his single ‘Bang Bang Bang’ at Liverpool’s Constellations and The Observatory on Thursday 28 April 2016. Accompanying the release is Matthew Dolan’s stop motion video featuring a melancholic, yet optimistic little robot. Mathew Dolan said: “Bang Bang Bang is a stop frame video which has taken over twenty thousand images and a few months to create. Made in an apple orchard with very special thanks to ‘Studio Lythgoe’ for their time and patience. “The stop frame, hand crafted video, I felt, would marry the pensive lyric with a fitting, reflective visual and a chance to create a model world that could be captured filmically; this meant building the set and importantly building the right lighting rigs to create the correct mood – plus I really wanted to see a singing robot”. Gary Edward JonesFor the true sentiment and spirit behind the evening, it is perhaps best to simply hear what Gary himself has to say, “This event celebrates the creativity, dedication and hard work that has resulted in a truly unique interpretation of my song, Bang Bang Bang, with the video, the remixes, live performance and event visuals. The song was really the starting point, but it is through the sharing of it with the audience, in a really exciting way, that the poignant message will really come alive and begin to provoke thought and maybe even action. It’s going to be a great night!” On the night he will also be showcasing songs from his, all but complete, next album.
