The new Blood Red Shoes vid was inspired by the photography of Pennie Smith for the cover of the Clash's London Calling. It's also the best live music video in ages.

Phil Tidy took DoP Deane Thrussell and his camera ops to the legendary Paradiso in Amsterdam, where this was shot, during sound check and the show, on four Canon 5Ds with Nikon lenses. "The lighting designer set up more lights lower on the stage than usual to get more flare and back light for the video, and also to have more flashing lights over the audience," says Phil.

Richard Anthony then had his arm twisted to edit the footage, and did a brilliant job.
