I went to a music festival the other weekend, Indietracks 2012. Its like twee indiepop and steam trains at the same time, and this it had parrots and owls too.
Anyhoo, at these things I usually shoot a few videos, I'd like to present them all to you here in one blogpost.
This is a short 4 minute taster of the whole weekend
This is Darren Hayman and The secondary Modern playing a cover of The Bee Gees' I started a Joke
This is The Just Joans playing a cover of Kenickie's Come Out 2Nite
This is Fulhast playing Prison Pizza
This is Allo Darlin' playing a cover of The Just Joans' If You Don't Pull
And this is Elizabeth from Allo Darlin's encore, their classic Tallulah
And for those of you with plenty of time on your hands this is a 30 min compilation of the weekend.
On reflection, I should have titled it up with the name of all the bands. That would have taken an hour or so, and I was in a rush to get it online first, not sure why.
I think with these videos for me it is a popularity contest, can I get more views on YouTube than I did the other year. The quality isn't great, but it's good enough for YouTube, and what do you expect with a Canon IXUS 50 from 2005 (it used to be cutting edge, I could have been a contender...). For the past few years there's been folk mincing about at Indietracks with professional cameras, whole film crews, and I'm never sure what happens to the footage, a five minute local news item perhaps, or a limited release indie movie, who knows.
This year a band called The Birthday Kiss had a video up pretty quickly here, although I've got to say, eight seconds in the commentary contains what could be a tribute to the end of my 2008 video. Good research there chaps, appreciated.
