I was recently kindly invited along to Hoxton Hall to ponce about as a dandy for Adam Ant’s first promo in years called Cool Zombie. I have met Adam a few times now – decent chap and I very much like this song. A good article on the video shoot may be found here: http://huzzarblog.wordpress.com/
I’m even flashed (boozing with totty) in a brief preview clip of the promo (at 4:08): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPneOfk-T2c ….Oh you blinked!
Atters Attree sporting the petrol blue rich cotton velvet single breasted two piece suit on the cover of Grasham Blake’s Autumn/Winter collection catalogue. “Inspired by The Great War with photographs by David Ellis. Only a limited number available.” We had a splendid day playing with real guns and uniforms (aided by very pretty lady assistants) in London’s Shoreditch (of course).

Atters Attree interviews beat poet Michael Horovitz at his West London home and discusses his mescaline taking friendship with William Burroughs, beatnik movements, the 60s, art and cup cakes.
Full interview in issue 65 (Oct/Nov 2012: The Well- Dressed Beatnik edition) of The Chap magazine (along with Atters’ usual paranormal column and hirsute musings in The Lip Weasel). Online edition also available from The Chap website.
Bit of an odd one this… Not exactly sure what it was all about exactly – but it was all jolly fun shooting up North for a few days and the crew were very kind. I play the lead (as George the Magician) and I rather like the creepy atmosphere. It was made for ELIA and awarded a special commendation at the international broadcasting festival: Prix Europa 2012 (Berlin).

Photographer Anthony Lycett continues his oeuvre with his Self Styled London project – Atters Attree in day and evening wear.
Cartoonist Andrew Birch (Private Eye, The Oldie, numerous broadsheets) extends his paintbrush to join the quill of Atters Attree in their own project titled Bachelor Cad. This earlier prototype was a “work in progress”.
