BUG celebrated the amazing contribution to the artfom of music videos by one Norman Cook – better known as superstar DJ, producer and artist Fatboy Slim, one of the giants of British dance music – in a special show on Tuesday, October 16th.
It was our first ever show at the London Film Festival - and came just ahead of the release of the new Fatboy Slim live DVD.
Fatboy Slim: Big Beach Bootique 5 is the film of Norman's triumphant shows at the American Express Community Stadium, the new home of his beloved Brighton & Hove Albion.
But BUG mainly looked back to the remarkable music videos that emerged from the last Nineties onwards, where Fatboy Slim inspired some of the best directors to make what are regarded as some of the best music videos ever made.
And there was another first for BUG: Norman made a superb contribution to the show himself, discussing the videos and chatting with Adam and our on-stage guests – Skint Records' label boss and fellow DJ Damien Harris, video commissioner John Hassay and director Rob Leggatt – via the wonders of Skype!
