The fruits of Friends Electronic's artistic labour offer some audio-visual BOTAB inspiration

The hair is being groomed and the guitars are being tuned for tonight's Beatles-themed Battle of the Ad Bands at the Kings Arms, and while the winner of the last two year's events, Barnes, Catmur & Friends' Friends Electric, is out of the running this year (all the members are thought to be pursuing solo projects after a huge falling out, with Daniel Barnes going through his Sting phase and focusing on the lute), it's an opportune moment to show off the saucy full-length music video the band made as part of its prize from its win in 2012.

The Year in Review: Daniel Barnes

Last year, Barnes Catmur and Friends finally ended Aussie dominance at the Campaign Asia Pacific Awards by becoming the first Kiwi agency to win the Australia/New Zealand Independent Agency of the Year category. In addition to this, the consistent indy team won the Battle of the Ad Bands, showing that its creative streak also extends into other disciplines. Given that the agency spent 2013 moving from strength to strength, it comes as no surprise that managing partner Daniel Barnes was positive, albeit laconic, in his assessment of the year.

As 2013 BOTAB looms, 2012 winners Friends Electric release new single, change name, give local '70s classic the Krautrock treatment

As part of last year's Battle of the Ad Bands, the winning band, Barnes Catmur & Friends' Friends Electric, ate the 50 gallons of personalised ice cream and drove the Audi slightly above the speed limit. They were also given a recording session at Neil Finn's Roundhead Studios and had a music video filmed. So, as the industry gears up for this year's musical showdown tonight at the Kings Arms, what better time to reveal the fruits of that labour.

Friends Electric ends on a high note, finally hits BOTAB pay dirt
@barnescatmur

The shots were downed at the door, the undies went flying onto the stage regularly and the screams were deafening last night as seven bands came together and rocked the hell out of the King's Arms for the fifth annual Battle of the Ad Bands, a night that some jokingly—or not so jokingly—call the most important in advertising. And after being there or thereabouts in previous years, the worthy rock gods and goddess in Barnes, Catmur & Friend's Friends Electric finally took the top prize, prying it from the cold dead hands of TBWA\, which had won it for the past two years but didn't feature in this year's festivities.

But unlike politicians, getting a straight answer from the agency about the design was easy.
