Travel(l)ing Light

Super 8, so grainy some TV channels used the City Sickness video with this song. My favourite tindersticks film. Our second with Martin Wallace. Features Matt, our then tour manager, merchandise chap, and Ilona, who we knew from the Rough Trade shop. Also features Stuart's daughter, Sidonie again, now up on her feet. The middle eight pub scene was great fun, putting the band together from friends, getting our promoter Big Ray, to DJ. Dickon's brother plays bass. None of us appear in the film. And the end result is a joy every time I see it.

How He Entered

Stuart A.Staples:

"I bought the donkey head a few years ago from a great theatrical antiques shop in Strasbourg – he is apparently 100 years old. Sometimes I wear him around the house, he has become a kind of alter-ego. We had a photo session for the album arranged at Langar Hall, Nottingham, with Richard Dumas. I thought I would take the head along, see what happens. We have known each other a long time, there is a lot of trust between us. When Richard was introduced to donkey man he put down his champagne and rushed to get his camera – the next day was a lot of fun and the session spawned the great album cover and the booklet of the donkey man and his wife that goes with it. The idea of the film – a day in the life – was born that day. Myself and Suzanne started to make a storyboard and discuss with Richard. Though over the course of the filming, the emotion of the story and connection with character developed between us."

 

Richard Dumas

"When we finished the making of the donkey cover, Stuart had the feeling we had given birth to a real character and he wanted me to direct a short film showing the donkey's daily life. That was the beginning. Amaury joined and we had the perfect team, with Stuart and Suzanne his wife, writing a sort of screenplay. We returned to the scene of the crime and shot like a film, not like a music video. The image is in no way an illustration of the lyrics. All the feelings come from the meeting of the music and the image, almost by accident."

Tindersticks - City Sickness

 

I'm crawling, don't know where to or from
The centre of things from where everything stems
Is not where I belong
And the city sickness, growing inside me
So this is where I ran for freedom
Where I may not be free

 

I have these hands beating with love for you
And you're not here to touch
Sent you away, what else can I do
When I need something that much?

 

I'm hurting babe, in the city there's no place for love
It's just used to make people feel better
It's not like us
I got this sickness as I got off the train
Now it chafes away at my heart
Until nothing remains

I have these hands beating with love for you
And you're not here to touch
Sent you away, what else can I do
When I need something that much?

 

I'm okay afterwards
Afterwards lasts for minutes only
I'm okay during
You kind of fill up my mind
It's just that before, may last forever
It's just that before, may just fuck my mind

I have these hands beating with love for you
And you're not here to touch
Sent you away, what else can I do
When I need something that much?
