Call This Number are Steve Mackey and Douglas Hart.
They are filmmakers & photographers. Both are former musicians, performing with Pulp and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Their work uses analog and photochemical film formats, analog tube video and multi-camera live cutting which provides their clients with a 360 visual experience often delivered in near real time.
Call This Number began in 2015 as pirate TV for the internet age, radically resistant to pop culture’s archival impulses. A spontaneously scheduled music show, it was announced via social media, and only existing for those who knew.
Born in a garage somewhere in London, featuring performances by the likes of Jeremy Deller, Dennis Bovell, Sleaford Mods, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Primal Scream, Jarvis Cocker and many others - think of the spirit of Cabaret Voltaire’s TV Wipeout magazine, or London pirate channel Network21 that jammed the ’80s airwaves with Psychic TV & William S. Burroughs or the Max Headroom impersonator who hi-jacked WGN-TV from his Chicago garage in 1987.
Call This Number collaborated with The Vinyl Factory & Store X to present a series of broadcasts of these live performance in 2017 and was later screened on the Nowness platform.
