David Knight - 22nd July 2016

Shane Davey has used different formats - including 16mm and Super8 - in this celebration of one of London's most hardworking bands, the country rock outfit Curse Of Lono.  

"For Just My Head the band and I talked about shooting multiple formats across a bunch of gigs to try and capture some of their live energy," he says. "Classic Rock magazine reviewed their Hoxton Square bar show as 'Exile On Main Street meets William Faulkner' and the challenge was to present that tone in a band's debut video.

"I dusted off my old Bell & Howell clockwork 16mm camera and my super8 to shoot alongside Callum Henderson on his Canon and Ahmet on the Arri Amira. The band play constantly around London and this multi-format collage is a loving tribute to their renegade spirit, bristling energy and infectious performances."
