Betty Ford - Video


Here is the video for 'Betty Ford' with our two damp troubadours battling with the English Channel.

"It was a ridiculously cold day" says Pete "20 minutes after we finished filming it began snowing, and my body went into shock shortly afterwards. The playback packed up after the first take, so what you see is an unrehearsed first time take, but I'm not sure my body would have allowed any more - I began showing all the classic signs of hyperthermia afterwards and became quite light-headed and disorientated for some hours after."

Dried-out and warmed-up our two mermaids will be playing live in Brighton at the Albert on Sunday 28th April. Tickets are now available here (£4 advance / £5 door), with a little present for the first 20 who buy tickets in advance or through the door on the night.

Betty Ford will be released as digital download on April 23rd from i-tunes, Amazon and other online retailers. In the meantime you can obtain a special preview of the track at Bandcamp.

Pete & Terry's Live Sunday Service

To celebrate the launch of their downbeat debut single 'Betty Ford', messers Bickers & Fij will be playing a suitably laid-back Sunday gig in Brighton at The Albert, Trafalgar Street on Sunday 28th April at 8pm.

Pete said "Quiet is the new loud, and slow is the new fast, so with that in mind we thought a Sunday gig would be the best night to play a live launch for our debut single. Like the train service on a Sunday everything will be a little slower, but you'll have more time to take in the view, and you'll get there in the end."

Tickets are available in advance for £4 from Wegottickets or £5 on the door. There will be a special present for the first 20 through the door or buying their tickets in advance.

The night will also include support from  the fabulous Al Chamberlain who will be giving his own low-key take on love & trains.

Pete Fij / Terry Bickers announce debut single

Pete Fij / Terry Bickers announce the release of their debut single "Betty Ford" which will be made available on April 23rd. A video to accompany the single will be unveiled shortly, as well as details of a Brighton show to coincide with the release.

Pete says "I can't believe we've finally got to the eve of the release. This project has been a tale of obsession and meticulous care, and at times I think both me & Terry were protective of these tunes and didn't want to let them out of our grasp, but it's time to let the songs begin to  leave the nest one by one, and live on their own in the outside world. They are big enough to handle it now. Fly 'Betty Ford', fly"

Full details of how to obtain the single will be announced shortly. You can also keep up to date on all things Pete Fij / Terry Bickers -related by liking their Facebook Page. For the Twitterati amongst you you can follow Pete on Twitter.
