Filmed on Pictish's island home of Eigg, it's directed by Ryan Owen Eddleston, an amazing DOP whose credits include Gruff Rhys's American Interior, and the Jamie Adams film Black Mountain Poets. It's a Hebridean-gothic epic that required Johnny to draw upon all of his deep reserves of acting prowess and especially athleticism. An intense training regime to get in shape for the part saw Pictish drop over ten pounds in a week (at the shop, on crisps).
You can now own 'Far Gone (Don't Leave)' as a limited edition PostMap postcard single, which includes the exclusive B-side of a cover of Beck's 'The Wolf Is On The Hill' featuring Eigg-based metal warriors The Massacre Cave. Boabie rocked off or your money back. The Pictish Trail vs Malcolm Middleton tour concludes this week with shows in London, Liverpool and Manchester. If you're lucky you can party with Johnny afterwards and get up to really fun and macho stuff like him and his pal Aidan did in Glasgow on Friday.
