Discogs Blog Best Music Videos Of 1997: Smack My ***** Up!

The ’90s was truly a golden age for music videos. While these days you’ll find MTV is more reality TV than music videos, the ubiquity of YouTube, Vimeo and the like means the music video is far from dead. Even so, the ’00s can’t quite measure up to the sheer creativity, opulence and… fish-eye lens […]

Classic Album Sundays CAS Movie Night with Jensens Gin featuring ‘Amy’ with Throwing Shade

We are delighted to be joined by one of the risings stars of the London music scene Throwing Shade for our second movie night at the Institute Of Light in London fields featuring the brilliant Amy Winehouse documentary ‘Amy’.

Throwing Shade, aka Nabihah Iqbal, a rising producer, DJ and NTS Radio host whose latest House of Silk EP was released via Ninja Tune in 2016. Having debuted on Kassem Mosse’s Ominira imprint and followed suit with releases for No Pain In Pop (Patten, Grimes, Forest Swords) and Happy Skull, Throwing Shade continues her patchwork of peripheral pop.

In November 2014, Throwing Shade was commissioned by the Tate to compose a piece of music for the Turner Prize, and has since performed live in both the Tate Modern and the Tate Britain, as well as the Institute of Contemporary Art. More recently, she collaborated with the artist Wolfgang Tillmans, performing in his Tate Tanks installation in March 2017. She has also just completed scoring her first film soundtrack for the Belgian director, Robbrecht Desmet.

Our feature for the evening will be ‘Amy’. A documentary on the life of Amy Winehouse, the immensely talented yet doomed songstress. We see her from her teen years, where she already showed her singing abilities, to her finding success and then her downward spiral into alcoholism and drugs.

There are various pieces of extensive, unseen archive footage of Winehouse, such as when she is video-recorded in a cab with friend Tyler James in January 2001 and driving to tours and on her long-term friend, Lauren Gilbert’s holiday tape in Majorca, Spain in August 2005. The film also shows various interviews, such as with Jonathan Ross, Tim Kash, and a funny video of when Winehouse is talking about singer Dido in 2004, when she promoted her debut album. The documentary also includes when Winehouse was at the Grammy Awards in 2008, when she is seen winning the award for “Record of the Year”.

Peter Bradshaw from The Guardian gave the film five out of five, describing it as “a tragic masterpiece”, and saying, “This documentary about the late British soul singer is an overwhelmingly sad, intimate—and dismaying—study of a woman whose talent and charisma helped turn her into a target”.

Join us as we discuss the life and influence of Amy Winehouse with Nabihah followed by a screening of a the movie.

We will be partnering with Jensen’s Gin who will create a bespoke cocktail for the event! All attendees will receive one free cocktail on entry to the cinema.

Richer Unsigned Richer Unsigned Session – July

Joining us for our Richer Unsigned Session this month were Lisa Marini and October Drift. While both acts couldn’t be further apart stylistically, they are both excellent examples of the resilience and drive of musicians finding their way in today’s modern music world.

First on to the Melomania stage was Lisa Marini. Originally from London, getting her start as a visual artist, Lisa used music as an escape for what she described as a “hedonistic lifestyle”, but knew even as a teenager that she’d end up doing music. The last few years have seen her travelling around both London and the world, playing her intriguing blend of jazz and soul. Bathed in the pale blue lights of our stage, Marini and her band blew us away with their smooth dynamics and Lisa’s incredibly unique voice. When asked where she saw the future of independent music, she said “I think it’s great time for independent music, as you’re not chained to a label and the corruption that comes with it”, and that while the ease of the internet has lead to saturation, she feels artists in London are especially lucky, given that there “a ton of festivals, and a lot of support for local music”. So, what did she think of the Richer Unsigned Session? “It was really fun! It sounded great, and it was a good way to try out our new songs to a fresh audience!” Lisa is currently in the studio with her band, working with a producer that she says is bringing the most out of her as a musician and songwriter, so keep an ear open for new music soon!

Next to the stage were October Drift, a bombastic four-piece from Taunton, Somerset. Q Magazine hails their sound as “sugar-coated power rock”, which sees them “selling out some of the best small venues in Britain thanks to a flourishing reputation for live shows”, according to The Independent. And after witnessing their powerful live energy first-hand, we have to agree! Sitting down with Keiran (lead vocals/guitar) and Dan (lead guitar), we asked them where they saw the future of music: “It is a lot harder to break through these days”, says Keiran. “There’s less money going around than in the past”. But the band is hopeful, with Dan adding “Even though it’s harder to break through the noise, I feel like once you’ve done it, there is still an audience that wants to hear you”. Their performance is one we won’t soon forget, with Keiran getting up close and personal with the audience in the front row and Dan running around the venue like a mad man! After the show, Keiran said the band loved the Richer Unsigned Session, saying “I didn’t know what to expect at first, but it was great. It sounded awesome too!”

Join us in September for the next Richer Unsigned Session.

This day in music On this Day August 07, 2007

Pete Doherty was warned by a judge that he could face jail or a community order over drugs offences.
In July, the 28-year-old Babyshambles frontman pleaded guilty to driving illegally while in possession of crack cocaine, heroin, ketamine and cannabis. The judge said: “What I have in mind is a community order or prison… if he does not show his motivation, it’s prison – it’s as simple as that.” The singer volunteered to show the position of an implant in his stomach designed to help him give up drugs.
