Glasto Hangover 2009

June 30, 2009

Bruised, bloody, burned…. bed, bath, beaming… It’s a classic Glastonbury depressurising procedure here at the Butcher’s block as wounds are dressed and gigs assessed -who shone brightest, who was better this year than last year, who could have tried harder, who left out the cover of Womaniser I walked 8 miles on blister skin to […]

GLASTONBURY 2009

June 21, 2009

Last year I was on the train down to Glastonbury and got chatting to the petite brunette sat next to me with the sexpot snakeskin boots. That lady turned out to be Kim Lone, an idiosyncratic performer from Austria who tours Europe with her band singing burlesque, gypsy cabaret songs she writes about love, men, […]

CONTRE-TEMPS

June 7, 2009

This weekend Fat Butcher is flying the channel to perform at Contre-Temps in Strasbourg. Last time I went there it was by coach for a school trip. All we learned was that cigarettes and beer make teacher sad. So I have every confidence that this trip will be an improvement on that… Feels like it’s […]

MOTH@ETHER09

May 8, 2009

Watch in HD here. MOTH were invited to work with the Immaculate Extremists on the South Bank for Ether 09. The Queen Elizabeth Hall was invaded by Noise of Art, whose pan-media, multi-culture, cross-discipline Deep Space Disco p/arty required theatricality and ambience. You rang m’lord? Don’t miss Be this Saturday 9th, at Proud Galleries, or […]

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION

April 2, 2009

Have just been alerted to this festival clip (in glittering HD) by BLOC-TV. BLOC had their own channel running throughout the weekend, which we tuned into whenever we crawled back to the chalet to crash. It was a riveting mix of bizarre, creaky, cranky old films, footage from the previous night, VJ mixes and interviews […]

BLOC 2009

March 17, 2009

Rolled in from sunny Butlins yesterday with an itchy chin from shaving in the Miami Vice porn ‘stache for Sunday night antics, tired eyes and sore shoulders (we need lighter batteries – if you’re reading this and you manufacture feather-light solid-state motorbike batteries, ring me now). Aphex Twin & Hecker had the crowd nibbling out […]

D.A.N.C.E.

February 24, 2009

Spent a week or so in the MoS-TV offices with a talented team working on post production for Show Me Love. More Koko (Club NME) and Proud Galleries (Be) coming up, as well as a stint at the BLOC Weekender next month… Looking forward to producing some wireless light stains for Aphex Twin, Green Velvet, […]

Fat Butcher @ Big Chill 2008

August 5, 2008

Were you there? I was invited to the festival this year to capture some of the action and ambience for a video collage. The festival site is a sprawling valley around Eastnor Castle and now encompassing the Sunrise Festival, who were flooded out before they could throw their festival to higlight climate change earlier this […]

Fat Butcher @ Secret Garden Party

July 28, 2008

Just got in the door from SGP, furry mouth, crusty soles and all. Photos coming soon. We were praying for rain by the end of Saturday. All available shade was packed tighter than a suitcase with hungover revellers (dehydration was rife; there were about 5 taps to provide water for 125,000 people – sort it […]

Secret Garden Party 2008

July 22, 2008

Fat Butcher will be taking over a corner of the Secret Garden Party this weekend, providing visuals in another big top, this time the all-new Valley of the Antics stage. My set is on the Sunday night so I’ll be having a wander round on the Saturday and hopefully catch Grace Jones as I missed […]
