Yesterday we teased you Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s latest music video for their single “Hate the Taste” by featuring some really neat Lomographs of the band shot by Transistor Six’s Cory Llewellyn.
And as promised, today we are giving you the real deal! Shot mostly with a Super 8 camera, we present you Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s “Hate the Taste.”
Hate the Taste was filmed in Texas during the Austin Psych Fest last April. A live performance video based on the band’s “mutual aesthetic and appreciation of vintage, analog sounds and images” here’s what B.R.M.C. vocalist and guitarist Robert Levon Been has to say about it.
"Transistor Six believes in shooting most of their film and photography with classic, vintage film cameras and creating more organic visual effects rather than using the typical modern digital bullshit that of course makes life way easier, but also more clean and predictable.
We liked their concept of contrasting those two worlds, which is, in a lot of ways, the spirit of what the Festival is all about. Playing Psych Fest just became the perfect time and place to work together to try to capture the song and the feeling in the air at that moment. I hope people like what we’ve made by merging all these different elements together."
And why did Transistor Six decide to work with the band? Founder Cory Llewellyn spills the beans and at the same time explains us the music video’s brilliant concept.
"For the kind of analogue films and photos we do, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club fit right in. Our production team came up with the concept to have a force field encapsulating the band in the 60’s while the modern day audience outside were digital. We are always looking to push the boundaries a bit with photos and films and we were really psyched to be able to do that with one of our favorite bands.”
Now that’s what you call a music video! To wrap us this premiere, we’re leaving you with more stunning B.R.M.C. Lomographs shot with various Lomography products like the Action Sampler, Diana F+, Pop9, Lomo LC-A+, Ringflash, Colorsplash Flash, and Lomography CN 400 and 100!
