THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 29


THE LOOP FESTIVAL – 2009



As the UK festival season gets into full swing and the likes of  the giant events, (Glastonbury, V Festival, Bestival, Reading/Leeds and T In The Park etc), take all the limelight and national coverage, we are pleased as punch to be sneaking some of the better and quite frankly cooler and smaller festivals into our plucky town of Brighton.

With the Loop Festival now in it’s 3rd year, what it may lack in size, it more than makes up for in quality and fresh originality. The line up gets stronger every year and we are pleased to associate The Recommender blog ever closer, as we know the organisers personally and we see first hand how they make such a massive effort.

The least we can do is list below our selected highlights from the long list of amazing acts that are on show. A handful of tickets, at a variety of rates to suit your budget, are still available here.

As a side note, the band Mirrors have agreed in principal to do an interview with us in the run up to their show at Loop, so as a returned thanks we perhaps should suggest that you see them at the festival above all else. They’re an amazing spectacle, so you won’t be disappointed. See you there. Have an awesome time.

HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!??? – NUMBER 29

Time to highlight a touch of magical creativity for you here. Recommender favourites, We Have Band, have made a rather remarkable video for new single, ‘You Came Out’, due for release tomorrow, (15th June).

In the exact same manner as their music, they’re fast becoming a band associated with originally constructed and well crafted videos. This follows the excellent, Tom Ellis directed, effort with their first video for the tune, ‘Oh!‘.

As the trio had to lay still during this new shoot for two entire days we are assuming they appreciated the rest from their rigorous touring. Apparently Tom even managed to fall asleep three times during the filming, as they clicked through the 4,816 separate stills that it took to make it. The style reminds us of the Peter Gabriel effort in the seminal 1986 hit, Sledgehammer.

Additionally, it has been noted that this is not their finest tune to date and we are not sure why they took to releasing it. Seeing as it sits amongst so many other great tunes that they’ve penned we’ll forgive it, but at least the video is a truly astonishing piece of work and well worth pointing you towards.

Because we are so very lovely and generous we also include the making of the video too, plus their, (slightly better), tune, Time After Time. Enjoy.

Lastly, just in case you missed it, we’ve posted plenty about We Have Band prior to this on The Recommender. We first recommended them here, did a ‘Gig List‘ about them here, reviewed the time we met them at The Great Escape Festival here and finally here’s the Q&A they did for us…
