Hi everyone … hope you are well – and welcome to another little Katie P blog for the epic Red Bull Bedroom Jam 2012!
We have now done eight – impressive! – shoots for RBBJ 2012, and it’s great meeting so many new people and checking out new bands!
This week we headed over to Twyford, near Reading, to film a Bedroom Jam with BORDERLINE:FIRE.
It was a really enjoyable day hanging with the band and meeting all of their friends. With plenty of sunshine, tunes, trampolines and chocolate – a good day was had by all!
When we first arrived at vocalist Jamie’s house, we were taken out to the garden where Jamie had a bedroom/chill-out-room at the back of the property – perfect space to film a loud gig! In this photo you can see all of the furniture that was in the room has been moved to the decking outside instead..
While the team were setting up equipment and plugging in lights, the band members – here is Joss and Johnny – managed to find some time to play about on the climbing frame. A battle to the death! (almost)
Inside the room, things started to take shape! Out with the bed… in with the drum kit, synths, amps, guitars and mics!
I’m pretty terrible at lifting things and plugging in guitars, so instead I hung out on the trampoline in the garden with Jamie’s cute dog!
By about 4pm, the band were ready to go, sound-checked and we were all set to shout “GO!”… Johnny seems rather chuffed about this.
And finally… a sneeky peeky behind the cameras as the band got going!
So there you go! That was BORDERLINE:FIRE – big thank you to them for a brilliant day!
Meanwhile, the band at the top of the Buzz Chart at noon on Monday will be the next ones through to RBBJ 2012 – so keep supporting your favourites!
I’ll see you on Monday at 5pm! Ta ra!
