Gavin Friday enlisted the expertise of highly acclaimed and renowned director Kevin Godley and producer Ned O’Hanlon for its making. Both Godley and O’Hanlon have both worked on many creative projects in the art and entertainment medium with star artists such as U2, Paul McCartney, Blur, Rolling Stones, Oasis to name but a few.

‘Able’ is a kind of declaration that comes with age and experience. Commenting on the video Godley added ‘Gavin is prevented from being a free agent by a shadow version of himself. Attached, like a growth, to every limb it slows him down, makes him stumble, twists and distorts him in any way it can to dominate and take control. It’s mission is to disable. Their fight is our film’.

‘catholic’ was released in April, the first album from Gavin Friday in 16 years.

Gavin Friday plays this years Electric Picnic, in Stradbally Ireland on September 2nd 2011 and the Crossing Border festival in The Hague, The Netherlands on November 18, 2011.

    The things that hold us back… Sometimes, to begin to recognize and acknowledge these things is the first step to releasing them or at least to begin to deal with them. Thank you for this video. It’s beautiful … -Anna
