Florence + the Machine (Boing Boing TV, 2008)

A classic Boing Boing TV episode from our vaults: Russell Porter interviews Florence Welch of Florence+the Machine at the 2008 edition of the Standon Calling festival.

Nobody in the US knew who these guys were in in 2008! Includes an interview and an impromptu, unplugged performance outside of their trailer.


  1. I watched this video being recorded, working on my laptop in a little marquee just behind the Airstream. Didn’t rate Florence at the time but thought that Paloma was wonderful. Shame that Russell Porter’s site seems to be offline at the moment, there was a lovely video of the festival on it. 

  2. Pretty interesting how music awareness works internationally. Florence was a done deal in the UK for a long while by 2008. I wonder how many things in the US just don’t reach us over here, or if it isn’t quite as reflective as thatn
