Handbook “New Day” – Official Music Video – Cascade Records

My first official music video in a while, “New Day”, taken from the new Handbook  E.P. “Reminiscence“, out now on Cascade records.
I’ve made two music videos for Cascade previously, Repeat Pattern “Fuck But Beautiful” and Fitz Ambro$e “FAIFF”, so I reached out to Handbook after seeing a tweet from Cascade records promoting the EP and he chose “New Day” as the track he wanted a video for with the brief “I love rivers, countryside and birds/insects so that would be a great focus. Probably difficult, but something ant based would be dope.

Uchujin 2016 Review – Part 1

Year of the monkey ©Uchujin-AdrianStorey2009

Well…We’re here again, the end of another rotation around the sun.
This is a year I will never forget as it was the year I finally escaped Japan – after 10 years and 1 day exactly.
5 months in to my rehab/recovery and I can honestly say ….. well I could write a book on how I feel about the whole thing, but I won’t for everyone’s sake….Let’s just say, so far, it feels 99% like the right decision.

“The Bowler Supremacy” Deep Sand Diesel For INFLUX

This months piece I DP’d, shot and edited in Belper, Derbyshire for my good friends Postfuel is now up on the Influx site.
This time it’s about Bowler Motorsport, a company that builds custom rally cars based on Land Rover Defenders.
Another fun and interesting job contributing to my slow and steady slide towards becoming a car nut.

“Not With A Bang” An Uchujin Films Short

I am proud to present my latest short film “Not With A Bang” (Title stolen from T.S.Elliot because I have delusions of grandeur) the result of months of work and what amounts to a final parting shot to Japan.
I advise watching it full screen on a reasonable sized monitor or it won’t make a lot of sense and you’ll miss most of it.

“Katsutoshi Tsukahara – Shamisen Player” – Richard Smart and me for the The Global Post

When my good friend and journalist Richard Smart showed me a piece he had written about the shamisen player Katsutoshi Tsukahara for the Global Post and asked if I’d be interested in going to film him rocking out some non traditional music on his 3 stringed axe I of course jumped at the chance – Smoke on the water and Disco played on a shamisen? hell yes!
Check out the video above and head over to the Global Post to read Richard’s excellent piece.

أنا من القمر – Jordan Pt 5 – Amman – The Canary Hotel

The Canary Hotel Sign - ©Uchujin-Adrian Storey. All Rights reserved.

In my travels there are certain hotels, not the opulent and comfortable but ultimately faceless ones, but the cheaper more full of character ones, that have left an indelible impression on my memory, stories can be told (some not in polite company) about them and occasionally years later I wake up from a particularly vivid dream upset to find that I’m not in the hotel room I was dreaming of.
The “Navrang” in Delhi, The “Hotel California” in Khatmandu, “Thai Thai” guesthouse in Bangkok, The “Regale Internet Inn” in Lahore and The “Z hotel” in Puri to name just a few. The scenes of some of the greatest experiences and the best friendships of my life have begun in these places and many of them will remain with me till I make it to a rocking chair on a porch somewhere to reminisce.
Well now I have a new one to add to my list of places of which I sometimes dream.
I’m speaking of “The Canary Hotel” in Al Weibdeh, Amman, Jordan.
