I’ve been a fan of Adam Buxton, since he and Joe Cornish first ventured onto the screens of Channel 4 in the 1990s.
They were inventive and funny and used to make the sort of silly films that I and a bunch of mates used to make with our VHS camcorder. A camera so big, that it’s size would make a news cameramen wince.
One of Adam’s current ventures is BUG, showcasing some of the most inventive and innovative music promo videos. You should check out the show here.
This week I attended BUG 10 at Norwich Playhouse, so I thought I’d just show some of the videos I really enjoyed.
First up is this one: The group is Delta Heavy, but the video is a rather clever nostalgia trip.
Next up is this one from – I think he said – an Australian New York based band called the Death Set. A kind of Home and Away Beastie Boys.
Finally there’s this rather brilliant and beautiful tilt shift masterpiece by Keith Loutit. You can see more of his work here
The really good news is that a TV version of BUG – featuring some very funny Buxton material – watch out for his video to Guitar Wolf’s summertime Blues and his Counting Song – debuts on Sky Atlantic next week.
And if you can’t wait till then – go re-live Frozen Wee Sticks
