Uncle Joe's Mint Balls, Nick McCabe w/ Damo Suzuki footage

Last June, several personal videos surfaced from Verve's 1997 US Tour, presumably from Simon Tong's video camera. The official Verve video shows Tong holding a video camera while overlooking a cityscape, so presumably it's him.

One of the videos, humorously titled "U.S. tour - Sponsored by Uncle Joe's Mint Balls," sees Richard Ashcroft holding a can of Uncle Joe's mints with plans of selling the product on the road. The video found its way to Uncle Joe, a Wigan based confectioner, and is now mentioned on their website. Class promotion of a Wigan based company. Link here.

Also, here is an amalgamation of sound using one of Nick McCabe's guitar tracks wrapped around Annie Lennox's song "Why."
