Deadstring Brothers Tour
The video for “Meet Me At Heavy Load” will be on the airwaves soon – it was filmed by Nick Hill for Lucky Airlines, the folks responsible for clips for Brendan Benson, Thunderbirds Are Now, Outrageous Cherry and Bad Wizard. Taking the Heavy Load party concept to a new level, it was filmed entirely inside a vintage elevator.
Much of the story behind Silver Mountain is the band’s late nights at the Heavy Load, an underground club night in London’s West End, where they met future Brother Spencer Cullum. Led by Heavy Load Rob and his very lovely wife, Hippy Karen, the Heavy Load debuted in 1999 and celebrates vintage rock music from the 60s to the mid-70s. It’s music that really makes you feel at home, says Heavy Load Rob, and apparently he’s right—Now in its 8th year, the Heavy Load is one of the most popular club nights in London, attracting an enthusiastic crowd, and in turn, defining a scene, much like the dance nights and local bands that played at The Factory eventually became part of rock history. It was only a matter of time before the Heavy Load’s playlists from the past influenced a new breed of bands.
