The Answering Machine

Two aspirations were forfilled with this session. The first being we finally got to film in the legendary Piccadilly Records on Oldham Street. The second was that we finally found the band worthy of such a great location. The Answering Machine perform this fantastic version of there current single, Animals, ahead of there album release next year.

The Answering Machine might have started life a few years ago to a wave of giddy industry adulation and press accolade. Then, they were a starry-eyed trio with a clutch of bedroom recorded, drum machine backed indie-pop nuggets. Snapped to singles deals and for publishing, the trio began trading on their raucous youthful exuberance and innocent good looks.

Diving undercover as the band’s buzz reached fever pitch, The Answering Machine spent a period in hiding prolifically pre-producing and penning several dozen new songs. They bolstered their attack with real life drummer Ben Perry, introduced alongside their trusty drum-machine friend, ‘Mustafa Beat’.

By the end of 2008, they had locked themselves up in a remote North Yorkshire studio with Manic Street Preachers and Idlewild producer Dave Eringa at the helm, ready to record their essential first album.

Now, in 2009, with intensity and maturity, they are able to deliver their devastating pop tales on their debut long player, “Another City, Another Sorry.”

The record, packed full of melody, charm and energy, covers every conceivable emotion in a devilish cocktail of adrenaline and bitter sweet lyricism.
