The Courteeners 'Lose Control' by Joe ConnorThe Courteeners 'Lose Control' by Joe ConnorJoe Connor's video for Manchester band The Courteeners' Lose Control closely follows the release of his Moons/Paul Weller video for Something Soon – and this is another performance given some eyecatching visual enhancement. Sporting a new clean-cut look themselves, The Courteeners' intense performance of Lose Control was shot in a warehouse on the outskirts of Manchester, intercut with some intriguing and appropriate archive footage – sourced from the Prelinger archives, which is also projected over the band. "The archive was sourced from the Prelinger archives, which has some absolutely fantastic stuff all free to use," explains producer Nick Crossley at Chief Productions. "Joe uses it quite a lot when he needs interesting old archive clips."
