Musical polymath and Joyzine contributor John Clay is a member of the Colossus, a well-deserved name as they bring a gigantic sound to bear on their songs. ‘Strike Up The Band’ is a high voltage track full of rock and roll theatrics, verses that are wound up tight and a lightning strike chorus that must make the live set a blast.
The black and white video was from a script by John Clay, directed by Camille and edited by Rob Homewood. It was shot at Jumping Sofa Studios.
