It’s me Matty May.
Hope you're all doing alright and looking after yourself.
At this point in lock down I’ve had enough of video calls and porn so I’ve decided to have a little nose about in the Scottee & Friends archive.
I’m gonna share a few of my favourite videos from our YouTube. There's a load on there so if you find any faves DM me the link on our instagram (@scotteeandfriends).
The first one I chose is from back in 2014 for the project ‘Liam Gallagher is my Grandad’.
This project was all about Scottee turning his 77 year old Irish immigrant grandfather into a world renowned artist. There's more videos about this project that you can click through to, plus this one features Scottee in a gawjy tartan on tartan ensemble.
My second video is from Fat Blokes, a sort of dance show about flab, double chins and these five babes they’re attached too. In a time where fatphobia is rife it feels really joyful and much needed to watch them talk about the show they made and the gang they formed while doing it. I recommend listening to 'Standing In The Way Of Control' straight after and having a dance.
Last year for Bleeps and Bloops I spent a week living working and playing in Manchester, exploring the impact of apps like Grindr, Scruff, Tinder and Growlr on the LGBTQIA* community. I used the apps to talk about every thing from chems, to kindness and mental health. Here’s me and Scottee having a natter about what happened, plus a few dirty cackles.
