Otis really got into the spirit of the site and suggested our first tracking shot video. We did our best to keep up with him and we hope that this session captures the spontaneity of the performance and sums up Otis’ travelling, folk, Americana sound. What a lovely man!

Video: Josephine

We filmed this fantastic session with Josephine in a busy Oklahoma in the Northern Quarter. She managed to hush the shop with her soulful tone, and gave us this fantastic performance of her recent single ‘I Think It Was Love’ as heard all over BBC Radio 6 earlier this summer.

Circa Survive

Being regular perusers of most punk web zines, we had heard so much about Circa Survive, however, when arranging this session, we were excited to find out how such a full on rock band would translate acoustically. They sure showed us how it’s done. Anthony Green has an amazing voice and presence as well as one of the nicest bands we have met.

Being the fine gentlemen they are, SR Gents had no trouble persuading The Palace Theatre to let us film their session in the decadent surroundings of the Ivor Novello Suite. This early morning shoot was the perfect way to start the day!

If anyone managed to see any of Bombay Bicycle Clubs recent church shows, they would have seen Lucy Rose helping out with some amazing backing vocals and support slot. After hearing hearing this amazing voice we had to film her. We clambered up to the bell tower, guitar in tow, to grab this intimate performance.

We had been listening to With That Knife for a few month’s before this session, and as big fan’s of their post punk sound, we were excited to see what they could do acoustically. They Completely reworked ‘Excuse? Me!’ and it blew us away, so much so we offered them a slot on our 100th Video gig, as well as our 100th Video.

Bombay Bicycle Club

Video: Bombay Bicycle Club

We were due to film with Bombay Bicycle Club back in April but due to singer Jack Steadman not feeling 100% we postponed until their acoustic show at Salford’s St Philips Church. However in this space of time, ‘Bombay’ were placed on high rotation on all radio stations and we thought they would be too ‘huge’ for our site. However, they made time for us and performed their single ‘Ivy & Gold’ in the beautiful surroundings of St.Phil’s Church. Amazing!!

The first time we filmed BTR we managed to pick the windiest day in history resulting in some very experimental audio. But thanks to the patience of the awesome men of BTR, we managed to arrange ‘take 2′! This ones the better version anyway!

We went to meet Ólafur at the RNCM before his awesome concert at The Bridgewater Hall. Aside from ourselves, there happened to be a second camera crew making a documentary featuring Ólafur present at the session, creating a post-modern fun loop!
