Live Gig Video: 2/3rds of Trophy Wife performs an acoustic version of ‘Canopy Shade’ for Cock and Bull TV

By on Monday, 18th June 2012 at 4:00 pm

Last month I posted an acoustic version of ‘Microlite’ that Jody Prewett and Ben Rimmer of Trophy Wife did in St. Kevin’s Park in Dublin while they were in Eire for the Dublin version of Camden Crawl. I hadn’t realised there was a second track recorded until I got an email from the Cock and Bull TV folks about this video for ‘Canopy Shade’. I feared the worst, as the opening track from their ‘Bruxism’ EP released in 2010 was a dance number, and dance numbers generally don’t translate well to acoustic settings. However, this pleasantly surprised me. Watch the video below.

I bloody love Trophy Wife and am quite depressed I still haven’t seen them live. This live recording of their first single ‘Microlite’ partially makes up for it. Filmed in the leafy environs of St. Kevin’s Park in Dublin when the band were over for the Dublin version of Camden Crawl 2 weekends ago, keyboardist Ben Rimmer takes to the fiddle (seriously!). But I’m not sure how I feel about Jody Prewett in those gigantic hipster spectacles. I approve of the acoustic guitar though. Watch it all go down in the embedded Cock and Bull TV video below.
