Creative spotlight: Music, Feet
Tia Bryant is an emerging photographer and visual artist from Devon and currently residing in the West Midlands. Although she traditionally considers herself a documentary landscape photographer, she’s also collaborates with the band FEET. She met them at a party through a mutual friend who got too drunk and had to be pushed home in a trolly by Tia and bass player, Oli. Since then, she’s been photographing them and creating some weird but humorous imagery, showing off the bands personality and friendship.
George (Jeep), Oli, Harry & Joe did pretty poor on their A Levels and ended up at Coventry University. Some mutual friends, pasta, rounds in and a scotch egg later, we had FEET! Jeep rather lazily wrote most of ‘Petty Thieving’ on a 4-string guitar because he couldn’t be bothered to re-string it. The lyrics and the rest of it came from an all-nighter with Ollie around Coventry, which ended with a ‘Spoons breakfast and a few tins on the Uni hub roof garden. The reaction has been something the band never expected to come from the video. Jeep says “I guess we are still just riding our luck. We have been pretty much repeating our own mantra ever since and it’s worked at so far ‘it can’t possibly go wrong ever'”. FEET released their debut 7″ of ‘Petty Thieving/Macho Macho’ on Yala Records”
