We all love a video montage, so watch myself and Katy from Capital FM’s Breakfast Show presenting the acts at OSFEST in the first of our summer festival take overs. Performances included Jaguar Skills, Parade, Missing Andy, Lethal Bizzle, Aggro Santos, The Feeling, Goldie Lookin Chain, Tinchy Stryder and Example.
The Camden based indie band Tribes, asked me and my friends from Sink the Pink to come and “Tranny up” for their new video to their single ‘Sappho’, which was recently played as Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record in the World’. Dressed in our finest bad drag we happily minced off to The George Tavern in East London for the day. The George is known for being an incredible arts, music and performance venue as well as a pub, which attracts names such as Sophie Ellis Bextor and Kate Moss to go down for a pint. We joined the band and their friends on an elaborate and very funny day of filming.
The band were styled by Naomi Parry who also looks after Amy Winehouse, but we however just threw ourselves into a bucket of glitter and this is what happened. I think you will agree it’s a strong look for 2011. The boys looked hilarious and the video is being edited now. You will have to wait to see the full affect, but here’s a sneak peek at what some were wearing. I know it’s difficult but please do not confuse me for Sarah Harding from Girls Aloud, it’s an easy mistake. The EP ‘Sappho’ by Tribes is out soon.
Last day at OS FEST. But at least there was a full day of music to keep everyone partying and lucky for us it’s a bank holiday too. Score, no work on Monday either. Unfortunately my presenting partner (in crime) Katy Poulsom had lost her voice from all the entertaining she had been doing, so it was left to me to introduce and interview all the acts for OS FEST and Capital FM Birmingham including Boomtown Rats, Revurb, Paradise Point, Missing Andy, From The Jam and The Feeling.
Yep. Presenting this. Tinchy Stryder, Parade, Aggro Santos and Lethal Bizzle.
Goldie Lookin Chain smashed it followed by Example, who I must say wasn’t as keen as Goldie Lookin Chain to play with a Scotch egg. Example finished off Saturday nicely which allowed me and Katy to retire for the evening after some impromptu Karaoke and high-brow discussions about foreign policy with GLC.
It maybe a closed dance studio, but my spies have just filmed an exclusive sneak peak of Nicole Scherzinger as she practices with her dancers in London today.
See you in the mud
