Status Quo 'Liberty Lane' by Rob Brown
Rob Brown presents a celebration of the London barber in the video for Status Quo's Liberty Lane.
We follow two barbers in a shop as they interact and work on a diverse selection of guests, from young girls to old men with whispy eyebrows and moustaches. Barbershops have always catered to a variety of clientele, and it's heartwarming to see the micro communities that assemble whilst waiting to get a hair cut represented on screen.
Status Quo as a group are cleverly woven into the project, through short flashes of live performance on the shop's TV screen and photographs on the front cover of magazines. The group might not be front and centre in the video, but their presence is felt in every shot.
Shot on Kodak S16mm stock, the cinematography is nostalgic and represents the ideas of community and Status Quo's domination of British music, as well as honouring the iconic craft that we have come to expect from London's barbering community.
