Bosley (the artist formerly known as Tommy Tucker) just released a remarkable new video for Neon Magazine, first single from his forthcoming album, Honey Pig. The CD release show will be this Saturday, August 27th, at the Ottobar. Get tickets and details.
The stellar production value of this video is thanks to Digital Cave Media, gorgeous camera work to Michael Patrick O’Leary and outstanding direction by Matt Riggieri and Bosley. Let’s not forget the ever-charming Paco Fish who not only helped cast the production, but who also is a first-rate actor and entertainer. The video concept was conceived by Bosley, who clearly has Charlie Chaplin, Benny Hill and silly, slapsticky sexiness on the brain.
I was asked by the wardrobe stylist for the shoot, the incomparable Julie Bent, to take part in what I would soon find out was a pretty sophisticated production. On Saturday, February 12, 2011, Area 405 in Station North was wholly transformed into a 1920’s late night lounge where all the seedy stories about sex, drugs and
jazz took are born.
The video can speak for itself. And if you like what you see here, check out Bosley, with Egg Babies Orchestra, The Bellevederes, Victoria Vox and St.even at the Ottobar this Saturday (8/27) at 7pm.
For a good read: One of the main dancers, Bunny Vicious, recounts her experience of the making of Neon Magazine in the Examiner article, Tommy Tucker is Dead.
