Dan Cadan and Jonathan Mowatt direct a video of pure Northern class for Black Star Dancing - the new single by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, taken from the forthcoming EP of the same name - inspired by (and including footage from) '70s British TV show, The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club, featuring Noel and the band star as headliners.

Cadan and Mowatt trawled through 32 hours worth of archives to find an authentic audience and atmosphere. It’s seamlessly edited together, in a genius fusion of old meets new.

"Recreating the Wheeltappers stage was a craic, from the curtains down to the fluorescent cardboard signs advertising ‘Peas on a Saucer’ for 5p," says Cadan. "Noel and the band gave a brilliant performance on the stage which we intercut with our friends from The Wheeltappers.”
