'Strait Street' featuring Dark Horses by WIZ
Ahead of his new video for Robbie Williams, WIZ travels to Malta to investigate the fleshly pleasures to be enjoyed down the streets of Valetta, with the guidance of local performer Ira Melkonyan, and some evocative vintage footage. WIZ was there with Dark Horses, who were invited to perform in Malta, and record in a studio on Strait Street - what used to be the harbour town's notorious red light district – known as The Gut by British sailors looking for action on-shore...
