Steve Gunn – “Ancient Jules” Video

Next month, the meditative guitar master Steve Gunn will release his new album Eyes On The Line, and we’ve heard the warm, expansive early tracks “Ancient Jules” and “Conditions Wild.” Director Claes Nordwall has just made a video for the former, and it’s a good one. In the clip, we see Gunn piloting an old BMW motorcycle down an English back-country road. When it breaks down, he meets a kindly stranger who turns out to be a kindred spirit and fellow guitar wizard: The English prog-folk legend Michael Chapman. We never hear any dialog, but it’s fun to watch these two chop it up. Watch the video below.

Eyes On the Lines is out 6/3 on Matador.
