Les Étoiles – Complete Great Northern Railway Tavern Sessions

Posted by Alex at 11:07 pm

In November 2014 Les Étoiles filmed a series of three live performances at the Great North Railway Tavern in Hornsey, London.

Filmed and edited by James Taylor and Chris Loy, I am sure you will agree they are quite beautiful renderings of Les Étoiles songs, presented here in glorious high definition. Hearty thanks to them.

Thanks also to the staff of the pub who put up with us taking over their gig room and being patient when we had quiet on set.

Blue Ducks Live Videos

Posted by Alex at 8:22 pm

Blue Ducks had the wonderful chance to support Fog and Crook and Flail, who feature the ever capable DoseOne from Anticon records and Andy Broder from Fog. They just sound tracked Alan Moore’s new audiobook Unearthing alongside Mike Patton no less. Someone was on hand to record the following live videos which I hope you’ll all enjoy.

The first is a joint from his as yet untitled forthcoming banger. This one is called I Never Really Learned to Ice Skate.

The next seems to be the next in the set and is a mash-up of Blue Duck’s dreamy Farewell to Floss and Floss is Full of Surprises from his record Six.

As an additional treat here is a couple of Blue Ducks remixes. Ducks turns his hand to a remix classic – Jay-Z’s 99 Problems. A remarkably soothing take on the song.

An a rather marvelous remix of Cool Kids’ brilliant oh eight hit What Up Man.
