Gary Le Strange: Shut Up Mum

Kate Darby, 2015

When it was time for Gary Le Strange to return from the wilderness, we knew it was only a matter of time before he started making pop videos. When we ran out of time to make an accompanying video for his first new single Norman last year, my wife and I were determined to make sure his second had a damn good video to go with it. So, armed with an HD camera, a fashion mannequin, very little time and a bunch of very silly ideas, we set about trying to achieve the impossible in and around our home in East London during the Easter holidays. Filming took place mainly around the Brownfield Estate and East India Dock Basin on March 30th and 31st 2015 and the whole thing was edited by April 5th (Easter Sunday). Whether the resulting film was worth the effort is in the eye of the beholder, but for me, it's a revelatory experience, adding so much to the song that I don't know why we never did this before. The 2006 ones directed by Stewart Lee for Comedy Cuts, brilliant though they are, were made in a hurry for a telly programme I didn't have much control over. This, however, can truly be considered to be the very first official Gary Le Strange pop video statement. And I promise you it will not be the last.
