A QUEENSFERRY based band who tried to organise a special event to mark the completion of paint works on the Forth Bridge has eventually done so.
Bwani Junction had hoped to perform to workers on top of one of the bridge’s cantilevers but were knocked back by Network Rail.
The band, however, have since got their own back as they painted a replica of the iconic bridge from its rust colour to blue for their latest music video for single “Two Bridges”.
The video, which was recorded locally over the past two months, saw the band given access to film on the Forth Road Bridge but they had to improvise for the rail bridge shoot by creating life-size sections of the rustic piping out of cardboard and polystyrene. The video can be viewed on youtube.
Local band member and guitarist Dan Muir said: “We had no problem getting access to the Forth Road Bridge from FETA but Network Rail claimed health and safety issues prevented us from playing on the rail bridge despite regular abseil events and a TV crew getting access. Instead we had to improvise and the final cut is amazing and really funny.”
Their debut album “Fully Cocked” was released last Monday and is currently 25 on the I-Tunes alternative music chart.
