Bad Bad Not Good 'Signal From The Noise' by Duncan Loudon
Steve Stamp plays a lonely guy compelled to rebel against authority - in the form of a bumptiously self-important security guard - in Duncan Loudon's delightfully absurd accompaniment to Signal From The Noise, the first release from Canadian jazzers Bad Bad Not Good's new album.
Over the track's psychedelia-influenced nine-minute duration, Stamp finds imaginative ways to rile his small-minded arch-nemesis - played by Michael Armstrong - in a Docklands-style open space where definition of private and public is notably blurred. His piece de resistance is the accurate puppet version of the guard to the space, provoking a predictably furious reaction.
Shot on 16mm, with a natural grade of Oliver Ford's cinematography by Connor Coolbear at ETC, Loudon has applied a very contemporary look to a film that's really in the ballpark of classic silent comedy.
Steve Stamp channels something of both Chaplin and Jacques Tati in his performance as the deadpan rebel railing against small-minded officialdom. It's great - and inspiring.
