This was the end of last nights spooky gig at The Lion in Basford! 'Buried Alive' is the story of how easy it is to become crippled by the stuff you own! 'Your car and your DVD make you feel tough but your buried alive under too much stuff!'
Here we have a Sunday gig with only four members of the band as Phil was on Holiday.
Here are The Last Pedestrians playing on a Saturday night for a change! The mighty Phil Jackson was away in Prague buying badges for the band when this was filmed hence the different stage arrangement and 'up-close' feel!
This is the last Pedestrians playing one of Harry's songs in memory of Amy Winehouse who died recently.
This gig sounds good! After reviewing the last few gigs we made some adjustments to the sound and we've got something good here! Feel free to download the video and extract the audio if you'd like to!
This film shows the regular Last Pedestrians Sunday night gig at The Lion in Basford Nottingham. I had got a new audix boundary mic for the cajon which gets cranked up in the second set.
The Last Pedestrians can be seen here playing their weekly Sunday night gig at The Lion in Basford, Nottingham. This set shows quite a few songs that have not been heard for a while. Harry sings 'Horizons of tears' and 'Please your Honour' and Phil does 'When all is said and done'. Also the version of 'Breakfast at Wetherspoons' played in this gig is probably one of the best the band has ever done. It's still a fairly new song and needs to be played quite a bit more before it settles.
This week saw the return of Harry Stephenson from his holiday in France. With a light tan and a medium rare exhaust pipe burn from a hair-raising drive through France. We can see Harry back in the saddle, once more at the reins of The Last Pedestrians.
This film shows the Last Pedestrians without our leader, Harry Stephenson. Harry had gone to France for the week, leaving the band to it's own devices. Harry being away meant that Wayne D Evans and Phil Jackson stepped up and played two sets of their songs instead.
The Last Pedestrians were drafted in to The Three Crowns at Wymeswold to lead the celebration of the marriage of Will and Kate on April 29th 2011. You can see the Duke of Sheddingborough is dressed to the nines, while the Count Beanovsky refuses to don finery for this unabashed show of imperial grandeur, preferring instead to stick to a brightly coloured Hawaiian number. Unfortunately, due to the fact that the only place I could find to put the camera to make this film was on top of a wall in an ivy bush, I was not able to frame the shot as well as I would normally hope. Consequently, Harry seems to spend most of the gig singing with his head inside a large black box. If only I had been able to see the viewfinder, I would of course have moved the speaker... oh well, you can't win them all.
This is video shows the weekly Last Pedestrians gig at The Lion in Basford, Nottingham. The band play there every Sunday between 7.30 and 9.30. Harry was wearing a particularly attractive red hat for this gig. There was something in the stars on this Sunday that made the gig feel very strange to play. Playing felt a bit awkward and disconnected so it was strange to watch it back and see that for the most part it was business as usual. I've often been surprised at the difference between my feelings about a gig and how it actually sounds.
The Last Pedestrians play at The Lion every Sunday. There is a group of people that come down every week to listen and support the band but there are always quite a few people who can't make it for one reason or another. I figured that filming the gig would be a way of making sure people don't miss out. That got me thinking that actually there are a load more people in the world who can't make it than those who can. It seems a shame that all these people should miss out on something so good just because they live on the other side of the world or in Derby or something or have to bath their kids on a Sunday evening. So, the plan is to film as many gigs as possible and get loaded onto Vimeo. If you like what you see can you 'like it' below and most importantly can you please tell your friends and come along when you can. Harry's songs are too good to not be known by everyone... Thanks Rich
The Last Pedestrians play at The Lion in Basford, Nottingham every Sunday night and last Sunday (10th April 2011) was no exception. Fronted by Harry Stephenson, The Last Pedestrians have played a weekly residency gig in Nottingham for the best part of ten years. The residency started in The Turf Tavern then moved to The Bell then The Dragon and then The Royal Children. Now The Lion in Basford has realised what a treasure this band are and has been the venue for Sunday devotion to Pedestrianism for a couple of years. No other band that I know of in Nottingham has had a residency for this amount of time or inspired such a loyal following amongst so many people. I hope this video goes some way to showing why.
You can watch whole Last Pedestrian gigs here. We did a lot of filming in 2011 and here is just a small selection of what we filmed.
