Tinyfish revealed the title of their forthcoming DVD recorded during their appearance at the progressive rock festival, Progrock 2009, which took place in Katowice, Poland on 16-17 February. â€œOne Night On Fireâ€ DVD documenting Tinyfishâ€™s great concert at the WyspiaÅ„ski Theater will feature a selection of the bandâ€™s best songs taken from their previous releases as well as of the tracks which will appear on their forthcoming album. The band is currently working on extra features for the DVD.
Simon Godfrey: â€œIn this instance, I’m up to my elbows in a recut Tinyfish documentary for the DVD. It’s been loads of fun but as is usual in these kind of situations, it has demanded a lot of my time. In order to improve the picture quality of the documentary, I’m having to entirely re-edit the thing from scratch using a much better bit of video software. My hope is that it will run for about 20 or 30 mins and will contain a significant amount of new footage.
The plan is that the DVD cut should stand alone in its own right and will not be just a repeat of two documentaries which are currently available on You Tube. The DVD documentary will focus on all the different aspects of the band containing (as before) a brief section on how the band was formed, a short profile on each of the guys and material from performing live and working in the studio. We’ve tried really hard to capture as much footage as we can during the band’s existence so there is lots of material to choose from.â€

DVD will also feature a photo gallery, the band’s biography and discography information and more. The release of â€œOne Night On Fireâ€ DVD is scheduled for late June/early July. Full details will be revealed as the work on the DVD progresses.
Tinyfish is a four piece band based in South London with a deep and abiding interest in all forms of progressive music. The group formed in 2005 as part of an informal collective of musicians who enjoyed playing the acoustic open mic spots of London. Although profoundly influenced by the UK progressive scene, the band were keen to break from as many of the traditional prog clichÃ©s as possible. Tinyfish chose to write and perform without the aid of a keyboard player, using guitar synths, electronic percussion and a myriad of special effects to obtain their distinctively melodic sound. The bandâ€™s self-titled debut album from 2006 received enthusiastic reviews from worldwide media and brought them many devoted fansâ€¦ 2008 saw the band sign to respected UK progressive label F2 Records. Their first release for the label was a rarities mini-album called â€œCurious Thingsâ€. The band have also begun work upon on their new album â€œThe Big Red Sparkâ€ which should be released in Autumn.
