Hi folks. We’re pleased to continue our series of the band’s memories of Keane’s official videos. Next up is Tim, with his thoughts on Everybody’s Changing.
This is another simple-but-brilliant idea. The extreme whiteness of the background is very distinctive I think. I have three comments on this video:
The first is a pretty extreme bit of trivia. The rack of gear next to my piano came from a gear hire company in London, and the employee who assembled it was….none other than future Keane bassist and pin-up Mr Jesse Quin! I know this because, like an endearingly forgetful grandad, he tells me as much every time we see the video or are asked to sign the centre-spread of the Hopes and Fears inlay booklet.
The second is hard to verify, but I’m about 86% certain that the man who plays the doctor handed me a CD of demos by his son Jeremy, who I realised years later was in fact indie darling, singer-songwriter and Summer Camp guitarist Jeremy Warmsley.
The third is very puerile..but I always chuckle at about 3:12 into the video, where it has been edited in such a way that it looks like Richard has been checking out the female body-builder’s wiggling backside. In fact I have to say that the brilliant randomness of the aforementioned wiggling backside has to make it one of my favourite moments in any Keane video anyway.
