My Indietracks 2012 compilation video

It is mere days after the Indietracks 2012 music festival in Derbyshire and I have finished editing my videos. As always I've made a couple of compilation videos, one is about 4 minutes and one is about 30 minutes. Please watch whichever one you feel is most appropriate to your time.

One day, in the blissful app filled future, there will be a website so that you can synchronise and mix lots of YouTube videos of the same song into one continuous video with lots of different camera angles, like with the half a dozen clips of Allo Darlin' playing Tallulah

Fulhäst - Prison Pizza - Indietracks 2012

Fulhäst was playing an impromptu set in the merchandise tent at Indietracks 2012, here's a video I took of their awesome Prison Pizza, minus gameboy sounds.

I like prison movies as much as the next guy, but Nik knows them better than anyone.

Allo Darlin' - If You Don't Pull - Indietracks 2012

Here's 'Allo Darlin' at Indietracks 2012 on the main stage playing and awesome cover of The Just Joans's If You Don't Pull.

Aw man, I love this song so much, it just catches a feeling so familiar. A reassuring blanket on those lonely trudges home all those years ago.

The Just Joans - Come Out 2Nite - Indietracks 2012

Here's a video of The Just Joans opening their set at Indietracks 2012 with a cover of Kenickie's classic Come Out 2Nite


Its a pity I didn't video right from the start of the set where Dave Just Joans stepped to the mic "Hello T in The Park, we are The Stone Roses". That was awesome, as was David's Sleeper T-shirt.

Darren Hayman - I Started a Joke - Indietracks 2012

Here's a video I recorded at Indietracks 2012 of Darren Hayman & The Secondary Modern playing a cover of The Bee Gees' I Started a Joke


Indietracks was awesome, the best its ever been. It was a last minute decision for me to go, like I wasn't going to go cos I don't want to just religiously go every year, but it was the Thursday night before, and I had another look at the lineup and thought, "Aw man, I love all these guys."
