Musical Interlude #4

Rare original promo video for The Dream Academy’s Life in a Northern Town,  Dedicated to Nick Drake and minimalist composer Steve Reich, and definately plays heavily on the romantic view of the grim post-war North.

This was the first video made by Nick Laird-Clowes, Gilbert Gabriel, and Kate St. John. Later updated when the song became an international top 5 hit in 1985.
