Episode Summary

Lightspeed Champion
BBC new music shorts invites filmmakers to pitch in a treatment for one track from a selection. Winning treatments are then given a budget to make the promo. Which is what happened to us. Have a goose at the news posts. It's a good scheme. Anyway, the tracks to pick from were quality, with the likes of king creosote, Gravenhurst and Cinematic Orchestra involved. Lightspeed Champion was also there. And we so nearly had a crack at pitching for his track drylips. But we plumped for bad is as bad does by the Earlies in the end, and it turned out nicely. Nevertheless, we still hankered to do something with Lightspeed Champion so it was ace when we fixed this session up. As for Dev, he pretty much rolled out of bed into the taxi. His very first chord of the day is the first one you hear. There's something pretty cool about that kind of insouciance.moreless
