Video: TVO Meets Hot Brew

In July 2011, TVO hooked up with Oona & Crispin Wheatflake of Hot Brew to discuss their forthcoming live appearances, their recorded work, root vegetables and the end of the world.

This mostly improvised spoof interview featured Alice Lowe and Antony Elvin in character and in conversation with myself.  We shot almost 90 minutes of footage to edit down to a two-part interview, and the results were one of the funniest experiences of my life.

In December 2011, we uploaded a series of out-takes created by the impromptu decision to make a Christmas message.  The results have to be seen to be believed.

Video: Scribblings In Manchester

On Saturday November 12th 2011, Noel Fielding & Dave Brown descended on Waterstones in Manchester Arndale to create a live art installation and sign copies of their new book, The Scribblings Of A Madcap Shambleton.

The Velvet Onion was on hand to document the event – and here is a selection of our footage, all filmed by myself, with photography on the day by Lauren Taylor.

The Scribblings Of A Madcap Shambleton is available now from Canongate Books, and contains a TVO flavoured double-page spread of our readers, painted on by Noel.
