19 Dec Video Archive: Rose Elinor Dougall – Musical Postcard
This video from my work archive is the Musical Postcard featuring Elinor Rose Dougall playing out in her garden with her guitarist – whose name, apologetically, escapes my mind. I really enjoyed this one being a big fan of The Pipettes and also very much Rose’s solo work. We spent an hour filming this one late crisp autumn morning the night after a big show that she’d played in London a couple of years ago. This was prior to her first album being released but a few months after the “Another Version of Pop Song” single. An enjoyable interview too, asking about the Pipettes a must and hopefully something that gave her a chance to discuss the inspirations of her solo work.
About the musical postcards series
The Musical Postcards series was born from the idea of wanting to do a very stripped back performance podcast; bands performing acoustically in a public-ish space, no microphones for pro-audio production, no multi-takes for multiple angles, just a performance as nature intended you to hear it.
I pitched it to Mark – my collaborator in crime up in Glasgow – and made a demo with the forever incredible Sky Larkin. Clash joined in and gladly gave the publishing platform. It’s been a few years since these all went up and presuming them lost somewhere in the archives on other sites, I’m now bringing them to the fore and placing them on my site for the first time. There are some gems to come.
