The Cribs have a new album out later this week called ’24-7 Rock Star Shit’ and, to celebrate, on Friday Vevo put out another instalment of its music documentary series Off The Record – which launched back in May – in which Cribbers Ryan, Gary and Ross Jarman talk all about both ’24-7 Rock Star Shit’ and 24-7 rock star shit.

The band are interviewed by a certain Gordon Burns, previously of ‘Krypton Factor’ and North West telly news fame, of whom Gary Jarman says: “We were really hoping to work with someone who would let us talk and be ourselves and be comfortable with that – that old school journalistic approach which coaxes so much more out of the subject than the modern way which seems to place emphasis on ‘banter’ and big personalities”.

He went on: “Gordon is a consummate professional, comes from a political background in fact – he’s interviewed eight prime ministers! – and it was the easiest and most conversational interview we have maybe ever done”.

Lovely stuff. Says Vevo’s Claudia de Wolff: “We launched ‘Vevo: Off the Record’ in May this year, kicking off the series with Kasabian, and we’re now back with The Cribs. It’s great to produce something with a real mix of performance and narrative that we can tailor to individual artists – giving fans an opportunity to hear the stories behind the music”.

The documentary is here.
