EVICTION ( THE BATTLE OF THE MACHINES ) TWO wee hermits fight back. (THI...



This is NOT a real eviction although i have been through several in my 25 years living on the road

Some of which were funny many were very scary and a few still haunt my dreams

........I would like to point out that ALL animals in this film were severely traumatised and are now under the local vet...... ( donations to help with their treatment can be sent to help the hermit . com )




I would also like to point out that all persons that have appeared in this film have expressed dismay at being included in such a shite wee film as this...




I would like to thanks Sally and Jezz for allowing me the use of the track " Into the wild " from the CD Purusha more of their music can be found at www.sallyhope.co.uk




Many thanks also to the guys at HCC ( Highland car crushers )http://www.highlandcarcrushers-inverness.co.uk/

and Mel my wife ( who still can't find her leggings )




Also to the guys at the TAT shop in Ullapool for supplying the HERMIT costumes at a reasonable rate ..

Thanks to Graham and Alan for all the laughs etc , lovely to have met you both .




I would also like to point out that the Highland Council DID NOT evict us for missing a single payment ..




They Evicted us on the grounds that we were an eyesore and were a minging wee pair of hermits .. ( bloody cheek )

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
