Watch ‘Brandy & Coke’, Ewen Spencer’s Short Film On UKG

Photographer Ewen Spencer has made a short film for Dazed, documenting the rise and fall of UK Garage during the mid to late 90’s and early 2000’s. 

Taking its name from Spencer’s exhibition of the same name, held in April last year, ‘Brandy & Coke’ features footage with scene leading figures such as Scott Garcia, Sticky, Creed, Twice As Nice promoter Steve Gordon, former Groove Chronicles man Noodles and many more. Discussing everything from the scene’s demise, to its unique dress code and the time that David Beckham allegedly rolled up and had a mix at Twice as Nice (!), ‘Brandy & Coke’ is a reminder of a time period in recent musical history that many still hold fond memories for. Check it out below.

Ewen Spencer has also recently compiled his photos from the golden age of Garage into a new photo book entitled, ‘UKG’, which was released last year. That can be bought here.
