Bluebell Morning video
The promo video for Bluebell Morning was filmed on Friday, and one of the dancers, Jen, has given us this information: "It's basically a bit of a Pop Idol piss take, but not - it's got a group of dancers pretending to audition to be in the new Ooberman video, and the bloke with the ponytail (sorry I dunno any of the names) is like the bloke auditioning us... and then I think it's Danny, and he's playing the piano in the background, and theres a weird bloke with a weird drum..." Well that does sound interesting. Anyway... thanks Jen!

Beany Bean
This is also from the mailing list:

Beany Bean is set to be the first chart eligable single released from the new Ooberman album Hey Petrunko. A suprise track which only came into contention in the last 2 weeks, Beany Bean is classic Ooberman pop with a bitter edge - A possible soundtrack for the summer. Expect to hear it soon on your radio!
