Liverpool UK Group Celebrate 20th Anniversary of Light&Magic
Release unseen archive teaser reel, short film, and Unreleased Music Video
Further unseen material to be released until the anniversary of the Album’s release on September 17
August 2022 – Liverpool UK group Ladytron are celebrating the 20th anniversary of what many consider their definitive album, 2002’s Light&Magic (Nettwerk).
To accompany it, the group have assembled unseen archive material from the time, including a teaser reel, a short film of them recording the album in Los Angeles, and an unreleased music video for the title track, shot on slide film, which had lay incomplete for two decades. Further unseen material will follow until the anniversary of the album’s release on September 17.
“When we released Light&Magic it was expected that the title track would be a later single, and would therefore need a video clip of its own. But we were on tour and didn’t know how it would be done. We had all this beautiful slide film shot and envisaged animating it in some way, like a 1970s science fiction title sequence – Sapphire and Steel or something like that. We disappeared on the road, plans changed, and ideas were forgotten. Twenty years later here it is.”
The video premiered at Under The Radar magazine. Read full article here.
