Live Gig Video: Bands in Transit featuring King Charles

By on Thursday, 1st March 2012 at 2:00 pm

This afternoon we’ve got for you a video of King Charles performing ‘The Madness of Impending Doom’ live for Bands in Transit. He’s actually a very small man, when he’s stood next to a van. (I didn’t mean for that to rhyme. Honestly.)

Watch the live video below.

BBC Sound of 2012 winner Michael Kiwanuka was recently filmed in an abandoned warehouse in Clapton for Bands in Transit, and below are the results. Watch as he performs a beautiful rendition of ‘Any Day will Do Fine’.


Live Gig Videos: Bands in Transit featuring Clock Opera, Theme Park and Race Horses

By on Thursday, 10th November 2011 at 4:00 pm

Bands In Transit were present at the Huw Stephens-curated SWN Festival in late October to capture the best of the bill in front of the iconic Cardiff Castle.

Clock Opera (pictured above) previously toured with Everything Everything (read Luke’s review of their support slot in 2010 in Leeds here) and been associated with Metronomy (download their remix of ‘The Bay’ on this previous MP3 of the Day post). In the first video, they play ‘Lesson Number 7’, the hard working band’s forthcoming single on Moshi Moshi, which shows off their ethereal and theatrical sound.

Next up we have London’s Theme Park, described by many including Paul Lester as having a desire to take Talking Heads’ funk-rock mantle as their own. The band have already supported Bombay Bicycle Club this autumn and many think this is a band to watch in 2012.

Last but certainly not least, to have a bit of local flavour, we also have a video from Cardiff’s very own Race Horses. They play their track ‘See No Green’ (not to be confused with Cee Lo Green…a little editor humour…)





Live Gig Video: Bands in Transit featuring Peggy Sue

By on Tuesday, 1st November 2011 at 4:00 pm

This live performance video of Peggy Sue‘s ‘Shadow’ comes courtesy of Bands in Transit, who caught up with the band to capture the best of ‘Acrobats’, Peggy Sue’s second album released earlier this year. Enjoy it below.


Live Gig Video and Performance Stream: Bands in Transit featuring Ghostpoet

By on Tuesday, 6th September 2011 at 2:00 pm

Ghostpoet has had a great year, topped off by his debut album ‘Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam’ getting shortlisted for this year’s Mercury Prize. We think Ghostpoet is a winner for just being nominated but you’ll have to wait until tonight to find out who’s won this year’s gong. (The TGTF writers have thought about who they want to win; read all about it here.) In the meantime, you can watch and listen to this exclusive Bands in Transit acoustic performance of Liiines by Ghostpoet below.

Live Gig Video: Bands in Transit featuring Bombay Bicycle Club

By on Thursday, 11th August 2011 at 2:00 pm

Bombay Bicycle Club just headlined this year’s Underage Festival (covered by Coco here) and we’ve got a nice performance video of the band performing ‘Shuffle’ acoustically at Alexandra Palace. Watch it below.

This is another video in the Bands in Transit series; we previously featured videos from this series starring Kyla La Grange and Bear’s Den on this previous post.
