To coincide with the re-release of Six.By Seven’s seminal second album 'The Closer You Get' on February 17th 2017, Beggars Arkive commissioned director Alex Mannion-Jones to produce a documentary 'The Dream Is Sweeter Than The Taste'.
Despite their unique sound, their huge popularity in the music press, endless touring and the efforts of the label, the hype never quite broke through into mainstream success. However, Six. By Seven frontman Chris Olley has always kept the fanbase alive and developed his own ways to distribute music outside of the industry.
The original line up who made 'The Closer You Get' reformed to play sell out shows in their hometown of Nottingham on March 4th and the Garage in London on March 11th 2017.
Directed, filmed & edited by Alex Mannion-Jones Produced by The Mitcham Submarine Sound recordist for John Leckie - Fabian Prynn
