The Cribs have today unveiled a documentary shot in collaboration with Vevo as the second instalment in their music documentary series ‘Off The Record’.
Off the Record with The Cribs sees brothers Ryan, Gary and Ross Jarman talk through their influential career to date with journalist Gordon Burns – everything from their violin lessons at school and their first record deal right through to recording their latest album ’24-7 Rock Star Shit’ with engineer Steve Albini, and playing their biggest ever headline shows to date.
The film also includes a mix of never before seen archive band footage, home movie footage and session footage of new album tracks ‘What Have You Done For Me’, ‘Rainbow Ridge’ and ‘In Your Palace’. On their new documentary, Gary Jarman of The Cribs, said: “As a band of brothers we have an archive stretching back literally decades, and at this point in time we thought it would be good to show people that side of us”
“We were really hoping to work with someone who would let us talk and be ourselves and be comfortable with that – that old school journalistic approach which coaxes so much more out of the subject than the modern way which seems to place emphasis on ‘banter’ and big personalities,” he continued. “Gordon is a consummate professional, comes from a political background in fact, and it was the easiest and most conversational interview we have maybe ever done. He’s interviewed 8 prime ministers.”
