Music // Mr Fogg – Answerphone


Mr Fogg, the widely tipped “one-man wall of intelligent electronica” (Drowned in Sound) is always looking to do things a bit differently.He has just revealed the stunning video for his next single “Answerphone”.

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”. Done in one take completely live with no tricks or editing, it’s already been tipped as one of the best video’s of the year and cementing Mr Fogg as one to watch in 2011. You can watch the video below.

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 the excellent Napoleon iiird.

The single ‘Answerphone’ is taken from Mr Fogg’s debut album Moving Parts, which is out now on his own label Kicking Ink Recordings. You can find out more at his Myspace.
