Live “Gig” Video: The Cribs share Gordon Burns-narrated documentary ahead of release of 7th album

We’ve posted documentaries on TGTF before. The most memorable one, which I think will remain as such for a long time, if not forever, was Bombay Bicycle Club’s long-form advertisement for a massive show at Earl’s Court in 2014. What’s even weirder is the direction Jack Steadman has gone since then, but neither he nor his former band are the focus of this post today.

The Cribs announced a short while ago that they will be releasing their seventh album this month. ’24-7 Rock Star Sh**’ (yeah, I’ve got my limits) will be released on this Friday. To promote the album, they’ve been doing some unique things, including working with VEVO for their own string of documentary-style videos under the video service’s series Off the Record. The most recent installment, unveiled last Friday, is narrated by former North West Tonight host Gordon Burns, who also interviews the band about their history in between performances of new songs from this upcoming album. In this 32-minute interview slash live gig, you can watch Gary, Ryan and Ross Jarman playing ‘What Have You Done For Me’, ‘Rainbow Ridge’ and ‘In Your Palace’ from the new LP. Watch it below.
