Johnny 7 Combo’s I Wipe My Nose On You by Andy Martin

David Knight - 26th Nov 2009

Invigorating cut-paste-and-paint rostrum art animated with gusto by Andy Martin, for a cheerful burst of snot-orientated punk rock for a long-defunct unsigned punk band.

Invigorating cut-paste-and-paint rostrum art animated with gusto by Andy Martin, for a cheerful burst of snot-orientated punk rock for a long-defunct unsigned punk band. And why not Andy has given the previously-overlooked, not-half-bad Johnny 7 Combo a very-belated second chance. <em>Andy Martin on making the video for Johnny 7 Combo's I Wipe My Nose On You</em> "So this has been a bit of a labour of love. In the late seventies a band based in Clacton-On-Sea were forging ahead with there own take on the punk revolution. The "Johnny 7 Combo" flyposted their home town with hand painted posters bringing them to the attention of the local scene. They played loads of gigs, recorded a few demos, and they even got into the newspaper for a riot that erupted in one of their gigs... but that's where the story ended. "That was until the demo tapes were recently discovered again by the bass player, Barry Payne, and he approached me to see if I wanted to make a video for one of the songs. I chose the snotty burst of noise that is I Wipe My Nose On You, and decided to adhere to the DIY, lo-fi punk aesthetic of the band. "I created an animated handmade poster using a tub of black paint, a tub of white paint, photocopied images of the band, lots of newspaper pages and a flattened cardboard box. The strict rules I imposed on myself also included the use of only natural light and avoiding any fancy computer effects or short cuts. This made me concentrate purely on the stop motion and give the piece a punk spirit an energy that I think suits the song and the band. "I hope you like the video, I hope you like the song and I hope you'll discover more about the Johnny 7 Combo. They're out there if you look hard enough."

And why not Andy has given the previously-overlooked, not-half-bad Johnny 7 Combo a very-belated second chance.
