Bank Holiday Photoshoot

Nicky Dega, our newest band member, tells us about yesterday's day of photos, videos and bandter!

On the 29th of August, Down for the Count headed to The Joint Rehearsal Studios in Kings Cross. For nearly all of us, it was the first time we had been to these amazing studios and we got to use the largest room, the Sound Stage for the whole day. This time we were not recording any songs but using it as a background to take some lovely new pictures and two new videos. As a new member in the band, this was especially exciting for me as it will be nice to be on the website with the other band members.

In the morning (after getting a little bit excited at the possibility that Eliza Doolittle was in the same studio as us!), Steve's girlfriend Linda very kindly took lots of pictures of the band performing, some head shots and everyone's favourite 'hanging out' shots!

In the afternoon the real work started when we recorded videos for Lady is a Tramp and Superstition. Mike and Amelia took charge of the camera, shooting people individually from lots of angles, which meant that we could sit and enjoy watching different members play.

Although it was a really fun day, it was long! DFTC got there at 10am and stayed till 8pm, meaning that some of us did try and catch some sneaky naps in between takes!

The new photos will be appearing on the website in the next week or so, and the videos some time after that.
