The moon is out, and now the mystery of Mr. Moon is revealed – The star behind the mask is none other than Madness’ flying saxophonist, Mr. Lee Jay “Kix” Thompson! I was on location for filming and got a collection of behind the scenes photos, videos, and a couple of outtakes.
So without further ado, here’s some BTS from our pub scene in the B&B music video of ‘To the Moon (and Back Again)’!
I can honestly say that it was one of, if not the most memorable nights of my life. Thanks to Chezzer Chesney, the coolest guy around, for getting Lee involved, and thanks to Matt of the Bed & Breakfast Men for inviting me along.

The new single by The Bed & Breakfast Men is out now!
Mr. Bed, Mr. Breakfast, and, wait – Who is Mr. Moon? Its the question on everyone’s mind. And now night has fallen, the moon is out, and all is finally revealed!
Despite problems seeming to arise at every turn, these fellas do not give up, and have pulled together a brilliant video for their new single, ‘To the Moon (and Back Again)’, which is now available to order, for Mad Chat’s new charity cause CLIC Sargent, who support young people fighting cancer.
There are a limited run of 100 CDs available, costing £5 (which includes UK P&P) sent via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org . The ‘B Side’ (not actually a B side, just track 2, so don’t try playing it upside-down) is the first B&B hit ‘Dublin Castle’ which is song #0001 on the jukebox at the Dublin Castle herself.
I was lucky enough to be involved in this music video, and will be posting some exclusive BTS (behind the scenes) footage very soon!
Saturday the 11th of November was yet again Mad Chat’s “Mad Chatter’s Tea Party” charity gig at the Dublin Castle, Camden. This time The Bed & Breakfast Men were to perform along with the awesome ‘Ska Dogs’. Unfortunately Nick was too ill to perform, so Matt said “I’ll Compete” and “Keep Moving” and swiftly put together a one-man show.
Here’s a look at the photos I took of the set, sadly missing Nick. Scroll down to find the link to a video of the full set.
Matt recorded the full 60-minute set, which you can watch below (the thumbnail in which I make a rather aggressive appearance).
It wasn’t the same without you Nick, buddy, but Matt did us all proud.
Matt says “I was thrilled to see that Nick Woodgate had shared our cover of his song “No Money” with his brother Woody. The fact Woody also commented saying ours was better than the original and then sharing it with his followers was just brilliant. So nice that they both liked it”
I’ve tweeted Nick & Woody with invites to join the BBMIS, and I’ll let you all know if they accept. 😉
As our tambourine/harmony master Nick Holt is still unwell let’s all wish him the best at this time.
