About the video:
The lyrics of the Stornoway single 'Knock Me On The Head' are loosely based on Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 1798 poem, The Rime of The Ancient Mariner.  The video is a contemporary adaptation of the poem and takes inspiration from the lyrics . Singer Brian is The Ancient Mariner in the guise of a modern day TV weatherman as he describes the journey of the doomed ship.  Band members Rob & Jon play the Wedding Guest and Hermit respectively.  Bassist  Oli reports in 'live' from the quayside of the launch of a ship, which in design is similar to another famously doomed vessel. One of the other characters in the video is reading The Mariner's Mirror; a heavyweight nautical publication from 1911 which is still in circulation today.
