It is a shot-for-shot recreation of the opening sequence of The Prisoner. The project took 11 days of shooting and nearly 2 years of planning to create. It was shot all over Boston and New England with an eye to replicate the London/Wales/1960s landscape of the original.
Lead singer/drummer Sophia Cacciola took on the enormous role of Number 6 – see the classic Lotus 7 replica racing around downtown Boston as the story of the unnamed protagonist unfolds as she angrily resigns from her intelligence position only to find that she can’t get away quickly enough to avoid being gassed and chased by a giant white ball.
The band is working through a project to write and record a song for each of the 17 episodes of The Prisoner. We can’t wait!
‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling’ is a female-fronted duo of drums/vocals and bass. The band name and songs are all inspired by the ’60s cult spy-fi TV show The Prisoner.
The band name ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling’ is also taken from the title of an episode of The Prisoner – which in turn was taken from the refrain of the theme song to the movie High Noon. The song and film are about honor, moral obligation, fear, and death.
