Live Review - Big Block 454 at Salford Centric 3rd May 2002
- Last night, Big Block 454 performed at the Salford Artists
Collective's cross-platform video and live music event Salford Centric
in Salford, Greater Manchester.
The band had been working with film-maker Les Howarth to create a film
and associated soundtrack. The film, "An Evening at Blank Frank's Bun
Factory", was projected onto large screens whilst a streamlined
version of Big Block 454 (Pete Scullion and Liam Robinson on guitars
and Colin Robinson on fretless bass and drum machine) played the
The venue was St. Philips Church on Chapel Street, Salford, an amazing
building constructed in 1825 and a stunning place for a music event.
The three large video screens dominated the choir stalls, and were in
turn dominated by the stained glass windows. The bands played on the
steps leading up to the altar.
Six bands performed in all, each with their own film, and the whole
event was a great success. The films were good, the music was good,
there was a large and appreciative audience and it was a brilliant
venue. Definite possiblities for more events of a similar nature...
Big Block 454's performance was filmed by Les Howarth, who now hopes
to re-edit his original film, inserting some of the live footage.
Some stills and video clips will appear on the Internet soon.
