In the heart of Great Torrington, Devon, lies a local band with a passion for the raw and rebellious spirit of rock and roll – Landspeeder. Since 2016, our video production company, Rebel Boy Media, has had the honour of working with this talented group, capturing their energy and artistry through photography and video. Our journey with Landspeeder began with our first documentary, "24 Hours with Landspeeder," filmed in The Dublin Castle, Camden, London, which not only showcased the band's unique sound but also led to the birth of our company name.
Landspeeder's story is one of resilience and reinvention. Some band members originally performed in the early 1990s, with members scattered across the UK. After years of ups and downs, including stints in b-list indie bands and a few minor hit records, the band members eventually retired from music.
However, in 2014, the four blokes – Andy, Andy, Dave, and Sid – decided to give music another shot, forming a no-pressure hobby band that quickly morphed into the vibrant, unstoppable force that is Landspeeder. Drawing inspiration from garage bands of the '60s, UK punk from the '70s, and the gritty side of Britpop, they've created a sound that's both nostalgic and refreshing.
As the band's official photography and video partner, Rebel Boy Media has been there to document their musical journey. From live performances at iconic venues like The Dublin Castle in Camden to intimate behind-the-scenes moments, we've captured the essence of Landspeeder's passion and dedication to their craft. Our collaboration has also allowed us to witness first-hand their growth and evolution as a band, as they continue to push boundaries and hone their sound.
