mistyagg-outnowMark’s done some Director’s Notes, so we’ll just nick those for now: “I guess you could’ve gone a number of ways with a video for Aggression, but I loved the idea of Gareth in a crap Midlands town on a Friday night, trying to get a pizza. Misty’s are a Midlands band and with Aggression’s ska vibe the obvious reference was The Specials’ Ghost Town. Especially being as we’re living in new Ghost Town times. But I didn’t want to get too depressing or political, I was trying to channel the spirit of Ghost Town, Robin Askwith movies and Thriller. In actual fact it was shot in a few crap Midlands towns, around eight in all, and the shoot felt more like Apocalypse Now. We had the most rain on record, one of our actors had a stroke and the budget just spiralled, from £500 to £850. It was all pretty difficult but the most difficult part was the chip shop. We’ve no connections in the chip shop world and the one chippy who said yes would only let us film when they were open. Which is definitely not an ideal situation to film a girl fight. Well, unless you want to film an actual girl fight. Instead of being enamoured by the Hollywood glamour of it all, customers were tripping over our track and saying, ‘What the fuck is going on? I’m trying to get pie and chips for my children’”. Check out Gareth Sandwich, a little Making Of documentary here.
