Burning Off a Tank Beyond the Sun Road

Beyond the Sun Road is a song by Loic J Tuckey and Zebedee C Budworth. This is a live performance version that relies on the raw, unfiltered delivery of Loic and Zeb’s live shows. The performance was recorded in the Hatch DIY space in Sheffield. Finally, it was mastered by Loose Hair Lathe Cuts – a highly rated record cutting company.

Where is the Sun Road?

The Sun Road is located in Glacier National Park, Montana. It sits about 40 miles east of Kalispell on U.S. 2 and 89 and close to U.S. 91 and 93. It takes roughly two hours to drive the full length of the Sun Road, which includes around 50 miles of long, winding roads in a setting of stunning natural beauty.

The Sun Road is located in wild country and travellers will find free-roaming wildlife such as Bighorn sheep and Mountain goats. The highest point is Logans Pass, which stands at 6,646 feet. And, despite being fraught with dangerous winding roads, sharp curves and falling rocks, the drive is considered a cruiser’s paradise. Providing you aren’t in a hurry, of course. In fact, with so many picnic spots, viewing points and hiking opportunities, you really feel that a 50-mile stretch is best experienced over a lifetime.

Beyond the Sun Road, by Loic J Tuckey & Zebedee C Budworth, is an account of events that occurred on a road trip heading from Cut Bank to the Glacier National Park, and beyond the Sun Road. Listen now.

More songs about travelling the world

Who doesn’t love songs about travelling the world? I mean, they’re great. Simply pen down the details of small events from a road trip or all-inclusive package holiday, then set them alongside a rock riff. Bob’s your uncle, Fanny’s your three-minute radio-friendly hit.

Willie Nelson couldn’t get enough of the road, telling anyone who’d listen “I can’t wait to get back on the road again.” And, Vanessa Carlton was equally keen on going the distance. In fact, she designed and built her own motorised piano which allowed her to continue performing while she travelled nigh-on a thousand miles.

So, if it’s songs about travelling the world you like, here are a couple of personal recommendations. Personal to me of course, as I wrote them.

  • Bad Holiday. A song that recalls a frustrating experience down on Copacabana Beach.
  • Gilet. A man gets caught stuck in a terrible hotel for longer than expected.
  • Beyond the Sun Road. Events of a road trip from Cut Bank, Montana, all the way through the Sun Road.

New Dance Music Video: Flying In to Bogotá

Here’s the official dance music video for Flying In To Bogotá. Featuring a brand new dance, performed by Loic J Tuckey himself and choreographed by Simon Dice, arguably Sheffield’s finest choreographer. Filmed and edited by in Sheffield by Ed Crisp of Delicious Clam Records, the three come together to create one of the most fun and weird contemporary dance videos since Genesis.

Behind the scenes of the choreographed dance

You may not know it to look at him, but Loic J Tuckey is not a natural dancer. Short, pot-bellied and clumsy, he suffers from a malformed knee and occasional asthma. Suffice to say, he isn’t a regular fit for the dance floor.

But, when legendary Sheffield choreographer Simon Dice heard Loic wanted to make a dance video for his new single, he started work immediately.

“Right off the bat, I told Loic not to think about any other dance music video he’d seen in the past. I told him to listen to me, stay focussed and to bring his inhaler. I wanted to create something original, exciting. But most of all, it had to be a fun dance. I think we got that.”Simon Dice

A crisis of confidence nearly stopped production

Music videos can be a real slog for performer and crew. And none more so than in the making of Flying in to Bogotá. In fact, just moments before shooting was due to begin, and following months of intensive rehearsals, Loic suffered an almighty crisis of confidence.

“He was really down about his performance in the rehearsals leading up to filming. Loic felt his knee a few times and wanted to delay the start date. He even threatening to pull the plug on the whole production. But as you see in the video, he pulled off the new dance moves to a very high level.”Simon Dice
