"THICKER THAN LEATHER" on BEYOND THE BREAK! Issue #69
I've been talking about this one since my job as an in-house songwriter for ISLAND FILM GROUP (and this blog) began...and finally here she is!
In Spring 2007 I was happy to receive the news that my song "Thicker Than Leather" was to be licensed for a TV show called BEYOND THE BREAK which is shown on the WB version of Nickelodon called "The N" or "Noggin". Since then I've been patiently (and not so patiently) waiting to see it's episode placement, and feel what I found true to be the bizarre experience of your song being used in the opposite context in which it was created. Not yet having aired the new season in America, this footage was uploaded to Youtube by someone having seen it in Canada.
For a song written with the intention of creating dialogue regarding what is in fact substantial living vs. empty daily existence...in a surf montage post-hormone fueled conversation it works surprisingly well...
SURF MONTAGE BABY!!!
A BIG Thanks to BEYOND THE BREAK and the folks at Brookwell/McNamara for including me in this season...Enjoy!
(Feel free to watch the whole thing, but to go right to the goods skip to the 4:40 minute mark.)
