Harry Pye is a London-based artist, once described by The Guardian newspaper as "the master of lo fi British art". He won first prize in a competition to paint a portrait of Tony Blair, judged by Gilbert & George. He edits The Rebel art webzine and has had exhibitions of his work in London, Denmark, Australia and Brazil. Collaborations with filmmaker Gordon Beswick have been screened at Tate Modern and Tate Britain in London.
Harry and Francis began collaborating when Harry asked Francis to write about his favourite Elvis song for a fanzine. Then Harry invited Francis to add percussion to a song he was recording with Neil Innes – a version of Micke Nesmith’s Rio, in the run up to The 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Harry then began sending Francis song lyrics and Francis would write music.
“Bonjour” was produced by Francis and Harry and recorded at Francis’ home studio in Glasgow, Scotland
