“There are so many graphic scenes of band members stuffing their faces with pies that I think I was in a mild state of disbelief whilst shooting. Only now that I’ve seen it edited can I fully appreciate the flesh in mouth, beard and nose beauty of it” says cinematographer Josh Troy.
‘Tommy Pieman‘ is the third single to be released from The Dead Maggies‘ recent album ‘Well Hanged‘.
‘Tommy Pieman‘ follows the story of Thomas Kent, a convict that escaped from Sarah Island and had the Pieman River named after him, that being the place of his recapture. Thomas Kent was sentenced to transportation to Tasmania after using human flesh in his bakery in Southampton. The Dead Maggies have brought this story, and many other stories of Tasmania’s oppressive past to life through ‘Well Hanged‘.
