29, 2000: CROSSBEAT - 6.00
gotten hold of Japan's CROSSBEAT - June.2000
issue (not an easy find in the US!). As mentioned earlier, Fiona is featured on its cover.
This issue contains a lengthy 12-page article filled with 9
new photos, an interview, and 3 Japan-TOUR Reviews
for the first 3 dates in Tokyo. Unfortunately, apart from the
obvious pictures, we're unable to share anything more due to the language
barrier. (Anyone able & willing to help translating?)
The Japan-TOUR set list was the same as in the dates for the
US. See our TOUR Reviews for
all details and photos in the US.
As usual with Japanese photography, Fiona is presented in a very natural,
warm & earthy way. When on stage, the red-powerful hues catch an
instance of her music's passion. Check 'em out.
12, 2000: Paper out of the Bag!
In an almost
inconspicuous USA debut, the whirling and twirling of Fiona's "Paper
Bag" video finally made it to our airwaves! VH1's The
Daily One show premiered it (as far as we've heard) on their Monday @
2:00 PM EST show. Beautifully done in the style of the golden age of
cinema, Paul and Fiona have delivered a true classic.
Wonderfully choreographed by M. Rooney (It's Oh So Quiet" Bjork) and
directed by the amazing PTA (you better know who he is), the video centers
in on the light airy feeling of the song. It focuses on a ruby-red
elegantly dressed Fiona lilting on her toes over a converted dance floor
in an old-fashioned diner. Fiona is escorted and accompanied by two
dozen or so dancing youthful squires from yesteryear dressed in 40's style
suits and fedoras -- enchantingly adorable. The dance moves are
perfectly in rhythm with the jazzy beat. The video richly captures a
bygone charm leaving us with a taste for more!
