Today Little Thief release the live video for their single ‘All Our Sins’ that came out at the end of March. They’re a band with a ferocious live sound, even when recorded, so to see them with full stage set-up, in attack mode is very much like experiencing the track in its natural habitat. The video was filmed and edited by Robin Morgan of Video Sweet at The Komedia in Bath.
In these days without sweaty, raucous rocking out in a rowdy rabble, we can at least take heart from flailing whatever hair we have (probably less hair than Little Thief have got going for them) or perhaps organising a household isolation moshpit. Don’t forget that ten consecutive plays of the live video, with associated dancing, would be a far better half-hour workout than a Joe Wicks effort.
Charlie Fitzgerald and Rhii Williams said this of their wild new creation: “’All Our Sins’ is the second song that’s come out of our Rockfield recording session last year; it’s our punchiest and most frantic track to date. Although we haven’t played it live as much as we’d like to yet (thank you Coronavirus), when we have, it’s gone down really well, so recording a live version of it was a no-brainer.
“We’re very lucky to be friendly with a number of venues around the Bristol/Bath area and Komedia kindly let us run crazy in their venue for a day. We set up exactly as if we were actually playing live and then just played and recorded the songs. It was strange playing in a venue of that size to no audience, but the venue staff were great and working with producer Stew Jackson again was, like always, a dream.”

If that’s nurtured a hunger for more Little Thief, then get all Zoom chats and virtual social gatherings cancelled for April 24th. They had been booked in to test the structural integrity of The Mother’s Ruin on that day, but the pesky virus forced the inevitable cancellation. Happily, you can’t keep a good band down, and they will be playing live on Facebook that same evening to raise money for the Music Venues Trust charity, to help out the nation’s independent venues during such uncertain times – Event Link: https://www.facebook.
