Harry Ridgway - ‘O King!’ music video
I’ve just finished the video for Harry Ridgway’s single ‘O, King!’, which is the first single to be taken from the EP of the same name. It was filmed on a slightly overcast Sunday in Potternewton Park in Leeds. The two young dragon slayers get the glory, but a special mention to the dragon Jack, who clearly was born for this role.
Fell Foot Sound have announced the first few bands for their excellent little festival, which seems to pull a fair chunk of Leeds’ gig-goers along the A65 to the Lake District. I went along last year to take some photos for the team there, one of which features on 2014’s flyer.
Late last year, Leeds band iForward Russia! decided to reform as part of the Brudenell Social Club’s 100th birthday celebrations. I’ve been working on a short documentary looking at the reformation and how a band goes about getting ready for a show after such a long absence. The video will include interviews with BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Peanut from the Kaiser Chiefs and several people who were heavily involved in the band. There’s also some great footage of the Brudenell gig too, which was a really special night. Video coming soon. The band have now announced another gig as part of the Live at Leeds festival in May, so if you missed them at the Brudenell you have another chance!
