Mr Fogg, the widely tipped “one-man wall of intelligent electronica” (Drowned in Sound) always looking to do things a bit differently, has revealed the stunning video for his next single “Answerphone” released March 21 on his own label Kicking Ink Recordings.
Causing quite a stir online already, Fogg says of the video : “When I came up with the concept, I was told by producers that it would cost between £25k and £50k to do, so I ended up ignoring them and doing most of it myself”.
Already being described as “the video of the year” it was done totally live, one shot – no tricks or cheating. We won’t spoil it, you can watch it here:
To coincide with the video release, and one year on to the day when Mr Fogg opened his own “Fogg Shop” in Central London where over 4 days he played 50 gigs and sold exclusive merch, he plays a special gig on December 9th at the grade 2 listed Hoxton Hall, supported ably by Napoleon IIIrd and Mayor McCa.
It’s been quite a year for the self-confessed workaholic artist, producer, writer and label boss. As well as numerous gigs and radio sessions, including Huw Stephens and XFM, Fogg has collaborated with American History X director Tony Kaye the result of which will be revealed in 2011 and made a triumphant appearance at Reading and Leeds Festivals with a full marching band and majorette which saw Fogg as the only “unsigned” act to feature on BBC TV’s main festival highlights show.
The single “Answerphone” is taken from Mr Fogg’s debut album “Moving Parts“. Mr Fogg’s music has been described as “[lacing] refined pop with modernist electronic tics” (The Guardian), “genius” NME, “sharp accessible electro pop” Q.
