Elbow – “Charge” Video

Continuing in the documentary style of their “New York Morning” video, Manchester rock band Elbow have put together a short, oddly poetic paean to speedway motorcycle racing, soundtracked by “Charge” off of the band’s recent LP, The Take Off And Landing Of Everything. The video focuses on young rider Craig Cook and former champion and current team co-owner Chris Morton, detailing the world of Manchester’s Belle Vue Aces with a remarkable sense of place and history, and capturing both the beauty and the raw physical energy of the sport. Watch it below.

The Take Off And Landing Of Everything is out now on Concord.
