Quick Hits & Clips: Benicàssim, Company Of Thieves, Living Things, Mötley Crüe, Disciple

posted February 28, 2009

  • Benicàssim are proud to announce the latest additions to their 2009 festival line up: The Psychedelic Furs, White Lies, Friendly Fires, The Bishops and Boys Noize will all perform at this year’s festival, which has already sold more than 20,000 tickets.
  • Check out the brand new video for "Oscar Wilde" from Company of Thieves, off their debut album "Ordinary Riches," out now on Wind-Up Records. The video was filmed at Sycamore Elementary School in Kokomo, Indiana, over the course of just one day in December 2008. It includes over 60 props which were mostly bought from flea markets and vintage stores. Inspiration came from Max Fischer, the character from the Wes Anderson favorite "Rushmore," who participates in so many extra-curricular activities that he flunks out of school. For the technically inclined, the video was shot on Kodak Vision3 500T 16mm film using an Eclair ACL camera with 12mm and 14mm lenses, with 23 lighting setups. The footage was digitally transferred to uncompressed 10 bit format and edited in Final Cut.
  • Check out the brand new single "Oxygen" off of Living Things' latest album, "Habeaus Corpus," in stores now.
  • Check out the new video for "White Trash Circus," the third single from Mötley Crüe's "Saints of Los Angeles."
