Good evening everyone – especially Bedroom Jammers – Happy Good Friday, and welcome to another Katie P blog for the super Red Bull Bedroom Jam 2012!
We have now done eleven shoots for RBBJ 2012, and I am getting rather sad thinking that we have just four more shoots to do!
This week we headed over to Kilmarnock in Scotland to film a Red Bull Bedroom Jam with rocking four-piece MECHANICAL SMILE!
It was an epic journey from our base in London up to drummer Murray’s mum’s house in Scotland – but it was totally worth it as the band were so nice and we had a great day filming!
The moment we arrived, we were all joined by loads of the band’s friends and we all warmed ourselves in the kitchen with a cuppa! (That’s Murray in the hat on the right)
At the same time, the bedroom was being cleared of furniture and transformed into a live venue! The first thing we saw as we entered the room was this little chap tucked up in bed! We decided he would be a great addition to the day’s shoot!
I spent a lot of the day warming my bum on the house radiators – very cosy! Here I am with guitarist Garry!
The band’s fans were really dedicated and made a huge banner for them with messages written across it. We filmed them outside the house pulling their ‘arrows’ stance!
Before the show began, we got everyone lined up on the stairs so we could film the route to the bedroom. Here is MECHANICAL SMILE vocalist/guitarist Dawn and her fans!
Once all the interviews were done and we had eaten a local Killie-pie (YUM), we were ready to get going.. here is a preview of the guys and gals in action! (That’s Nic on bass)
So there you go! That was MECHANICAL SMILE - big thank you to them for a brilliant and awesome day!
You’ll be able to see their show on Easter Monday, April 9, on www.redbullbedroomjam.com at 5pm, where it will stream live, and then be hosted forever AT THIS LOCATION for you to watch again and again!
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! Bye!
