Honeslty. It’s not enough that I can create, design, develop, fund, deliver, tour manage, event manage, preview, review and photograph events, I can add filmmaker to the list. This page exists so videos can live alongside everything else so you can see what I do, these can be a tad on the fuzzy side as they’re made for social media use so aren’t huge files, though I may load the ‘yuge’ ones when time permits. You should see the new bits of this gig I’ve learned along the way too!
First up is Jealous of The Birds performing a cover of ‘Shame’ by Ciaran Lavery, recorded on the 20th of November 2016 as part of the Atlantic Sessions Festival in Ireland.
Next is Eilidh Patterson playing ‘Do I Even Cross Your Mind’ at Atlantic Sessions, again in 2016. A song based on images and tales brought to mind after Eilidh saw Willie Nelson perform live.
This little slice of acoustic heaven is brought to you by Jonny Black of Lafaro fame, performing a beguiling cover of Damien Jurado‘s Working Titles. It’s all the more surprising as this took place at Lunchtime in the sublime Cafe Koko in Portrush for Atlantic Sessions.
This one was taken on my phone so I apologise in advance, I didn’t have time to go upstairs, find a camera, find anything really. The phone had to do, this is too good a song and moment not to share. It isn’t even ruined by the crazy drunk bloke whistling in the background, it should be noted that the crazy drunk bloke was still whistling as he was ejected from the building. This is Derrys’ Ports playing Devil is a Songbird, at The Anchor, Portstewart for Atlantic Sessions 2017.
I’ve had the honour of joining the Bronagh Gallagher crew more than a few times, on trips to London, basements, churches, and strange tents all across the land. I didn’t tell Ms Gallagher I was going to make this, it just happened. The track you hear is ‘Radio’ by Bronagh. It is the most ridiculous fun being able to hang out with these people, this was the first time I’d ever spent any time with them onstage. I do not envy that bit at all.
The following videos are short shorts created to promote the Getintothis Deep Cuts new music nights at the Jacaranda Phase One in Liverpool. The first video features the song ‘Lonely Girl’ by Eli Smart. You should like this.
This second video is another short promo for Deep Cuts, using Autumn Ritual, kindly provided by The Entire City, who played a storming set on the night.
The next video features a song by a very talented chap by the name of Douglas Savage and it is called San Francisco Disco! Find out more about Mr. Savage on his Facebook page
Deep Cuts, May 2019 and the one and only Tracky releasing his Boys in Black single, which is handy as its the soundtrack to this too. This was a superb night with Foundlings, K a n g a r o o s, The Shunt, Munkey Junkey and spoken word by Amina Atiq.
Deeper Cuts festival took place on the 13th of July 2019 in Jacaranda Phase One. I made a promo video for it and dropped in a tune from the mighty Gnoomes. Get in.
This is the Deeper Cuts Festival review tape, the inaugural Getintothis Festival in Kaz Gardens, The Stockroom and Jacaranda Phase One. T’was a glorious day too. The track you hear is Late Night City by Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard and it is a stonking tune.
This is from the October 2019 show, again af Phase One on Seel Street in Liverpool. Just a quick run through with Hammerhead Snails, Podge, The Merchants, Echoes and Abby Meysenburg. The track is Restless Heart from Abby Meysenburgs’ EP At Least Mostly Sure. #
I found another one! It’s another Getintothis snippet but it includes an amazing soundtrack!
BADOOM! By Scrounge should be the soundtrack to every morning.
I’ve been digging around files looking for stuff and I have discovered a few bits and pieces of video stuff I never got to finish with the whole pandemic thing. I know Getintothis has been sent off to the aether but there are a couple of videos that I’m going to finally get to, including this one. It features Better Off Dead by Aimée Steven as a soundtrack and performances by MATTERS, Aimée Steven, The Roswell Project, The Florrie Guitar Orchestra and STONE live at Phase One.
