Friends enthralled by gig filmed on phone

SMARTPHONE footage of a Jamie T gig has been acclaimed as superior to actually being there.

Friends of 22-year-old Nathan Muir, who spent the entire 90-minute concert with his phone held high, are currently watching the footage for the fifth consecutive time.

Joanna Kramer said: “From the opening song, where the camera’s contrast is overwhelmed by the bright lighting and literally nothing can be made out, to the moment when the battery dies at the start of the first encore, it is spellbinding.

“Deciding to film random bits of the support act, long gaps between songs and frequently the filthy floor of the venue made it so much more atmospheric.”

Muir said: “Sometimes you feel like you’re wasting your time recording an entire gig with a microphone which reduces music to white noise, so it’s great to have an enthusiastic response.

Muir is already planning his next project, an ambitious attempt to shoot The Who’s Hyde Park concert next summer from approximately 700ft away from the stage.

Corgis eat ‘heroic’ quantity of magic mushrooms

THE Queen’s corgis have been left permanently changed after consuming vast quantities of magic mushrooms.

Gardener Alan Titchmarsh identified the hallucinogenic fungi in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, which the corgis immediately assumed were some kind of dog treat.

Corgi Stephen Malley said: “I feel very aware of the universe as a single holistic organism.

“That’s a big deal because yesterday I couldn’t even talk.”

He added: “The monarchy is bollocks. Oppose all forms of hierarchy. Embrace cats.

“I can’t go back to being a lapdog of the oppressor. I shall roam the highways and byways of the land, spreading the message of love with my drug-infused corgi urine.”
