Brideshead @ Madrid Popfest 2016 on video!

While we have been on stage at Madrid Popfest, I noticed this guy with the video camera… Now it turned out that it was one member of Producciones y Punto and they are currently uploading every single song we played. There are videos of the other bands performances, too! I’ll really like the very agile camera work!

So far I found these Bridehead videos:

Brideshead is back from the UK

Two weeks ago Brideshead played their first UK gig ever. Thanks to Gary from dufflecoat records again, for making this possible.

It was great to meet Mark and Neal from Fragile and when I was looking for the url of the Fragile website I found this great report of Fragiles and Bridesheads collectively concert back in 1998..

Mark did record the whole gig with his camera and just published the opener Same Story, Different Day on youtube.

Here it is:

Zipper
zipperThey say:
“Zipper is a band from Madrid who loves the c-86 sound. Beautiful twee-pop songs with a little bit of punk, sang both in English or Spanish…………………
So, we’re Zipper and this is pop!”
 
The Proctors
proctors“…..this is the sound 4AD would have made if they were an indiepop label” Sounds XP
 
The Haywains 
HaywainsFormed in 1988, The Haywains played three-chord jangly punk-pop with bittersweet lyrics and a distinctive dual boy/girl vocal delivery. Part of the do-it-yourself ‘indiepop’ underground and fanzine culture that thrived around Bristol in the late 80’s, the band’s refreshing fun approach was characterised by singer Jeremy Hunt’s jovial on-stage banter and minimal no-frills charm.
 
Brideshead
 “Brideshead embody everything that is perfect about pop. There just hasn’t been a band this good in so long – they’re easily the best jangle guitar-pop band from the last ten years. Take the best parts of Orange Juice, Brilliant Corners, the Bodines; add a bit of Eggstone – Brideshead are better than that. ” – Indiepages
 
“Light and airy pop that would fit neatly into the Sarah Records cannon… Really gorgeous lush jangle pop that’s sure to be on my top whatever of the year list.” – Shredding Paper
 
plus Culture Bunker DJ’s playing the best from post punk onwards throughout the day
