Paul Thomas Saunders 'Appointment In Samarra' by The Blind Club

David Knight - 14th Sept 2011

The Blind Club, based in Leeds at Left Eye Blind Productions, explore the creative possibilities between straight live performance and more conceptual music video, and do it very well indeed.

The Blind Club, based in Leeds at Left Eye Blind Productions, explore the creative possibilities between straight live performance and more conceptual music video, and do it very well indeed. These include well-shot live concert performances, like for <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watchv=_ifu5BSjXsA" target="_blank">Dog Is Dead</a>, and more intimate 'pop-up recordings' - effectively live audio performance music vids (they always record live audio, using professional sound engineers) for the likes of Frank Turner, Bruno Merz and <a href="" target="_blank">Hunting Bears</a>. A key part of the pleasure of these music films are the sense of place: for example, the Hunting Bears promos were filmed in the clocktower of Leeds Town Hall, and an old alleyway in a leafy park. And the Paul Thomas Saunders video for Appointment In Samarra - shot some months ago but only recently released, was filmed in the gigantic 'secret space' of Leeds's Left Bank - an enormous former church renowned for its acoustics (Corinne Bailey Rae is a patron).
