Many people are uncomfortable with the march of the surveillance state – 
but a Manchester band has used it to their advantage.

Unable to afford a proper camera crew and equipment, The Get Out Clause, 
an unsigned band from the city, decided to make use of the cameras seen 
all over British streets.

With an estimated 13 million CCTV cameras in Britain, suitable locations 
were not hard to come by.

They set up their equipment, drum kit and all, in eighty locations 
around Manchester – including on a bus – and proceeded to play to the 
cameras.

Afterwards they wrote to the companies or organisations involved and 
asked for the footage under the Freedom of Information Act.
