Weird Naked Indian are scheduled to play alongside the Manic Street Preachers in a National Theatre Wales production of The Passion, starring Michael Sheen as Christ.
Michael Sheen went to see an Un-Covered Music gig (a series of gigs that promote bands who play original music) where he saw Weird Naked Indian play. Michael requested to meet the band and asked them to write a song about The Passion with a rousing rebel feel that would fit the scene. The song titled ‘Home is Where the Heart is’ has now been recorded and will be made available soon as a free download.
The event will be shown by 2 film productions internationally, one by the BBC and the other by Palm D'Or winner Keith Griffiths and Dave McKeen.
Weird Naked Indian are an “acoustic rock duo with a unique style and big sound” – Nation Radio. Singer and guitarist David Dale and drummer Conor Doig, are driven by their passion for song writing and playing to live audiences.
The band draws upon influences such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Led Zeppelin, Tenacious D, Two Gallants and The White Stripes to produce a new unique style of rock that one industry insider has described as Punk Folk Rock. “Wow, incredible song craft, passionate execution, this duo lack nothing. Rich melodies, stomping beat and captivating charm.” – DJ Alli-Cat, Total Rock Radio
