David Knight - 26th Feb 2008

Tim Mattia had an amazing 2007. He was recruited to shoot bands playing live for a NME DVD covermount at the start of the year and barely had a day off after that, shooting live show after live show all year long.

He has also applied his live performance directing nous to videos - most notably for Biffy Clyro - and he recently went to Nashville to shoot a riotous performance for Cage The Elephant, another hard-rockin' bunch of sons-of-preachers from Kentucky (who happen to now reside in East London).

Frankly you can almost taste the sweat and lick the excitement. And the seen-it-all-before scorn of the old boozers is a wonderful thing.
