Acrassicauda kickstarter comes good!

When I got home last week, i had a nice surprise waiting: the Acrassicauda kickstarter I’d backed seemingly aeons ago. Two CD’s, one of which is the new album, the Heavy Metal in Baghdad DVD with copious extras and a T-Shirt. As a bonus, the album is co-produced by the legendary Alex Skolnick. Musically, it […]

Chthonic, Download 2013

So that was another minor bucket list item checked off: being with a band at Download. We only got to see one day of the three because of assorted logistical issues, and I spent all of it backstage either taking photos or being like water. For Chthonic, it was a special show, they brought over […]

Furyon, The Mercy House, Purple Turtle

I’ve known both these bands a while, Furyon since they were an AOR style band called “Pride”. Furyon have been going great guns in the last 12 months with their album being released on the front of Metal Hammer and in a limited edition, pending an upcoming full release. I wouldn’t call them metal exactly, […]

Lola Colt – Awkward promo shoot

Got a last minute call to do a promo shoot of a band. There were constraints: it had to be done tonight for a deadline tomorrow, it had to be done in the dark and they wanted to use a projector for some interesting light. While they were running around setting things up, I played […]

Florida Room, Water Rats

Bit late to the party on this one, but got to see FOAFs Florida Room at the Water Rats (possibly again, or they might have been “Work” last time) and as usual a nice set of rocky numbers. Mike gets a bit busy swapping keyboards and guitars though! Good stuff. You should come next time. […]

Fashion on the Lock

Fashion on the Lock was a two-day event this past Thursday and Friday at Camden Lock showcasing talent such as Olga Adegoroye, Chloe Cummings, Jade Ottway, Purple Turtle Beads, Holly Mansell and Exquisite Xcessories. As usual I volunteered to take some shots but ended up getting distracted by two stands in particular: the lovely ladies […]

Alessi’s Ark, Bush Hall

Went along to see Sam Nadel on drums as I haven’t seen him since the Blackbud in Bath days. It was the first gig I’d seen at Bush hall despite passing through when the late Fortune Drive were playing. It’s a lovely venue. If you can go, do so! Alessi herself was possibly better as […]

Arch Enemy, Wolverhampton

There’s not a lot to say about this: complete wall of metal with some melody in the background. Angela is a great frontman whipping the audience up and engaging the crowd. Put it this way, while I was shooting, my can of Red Stripe was dancing quietly to itself on the bass bin. Good work […]

Canon S90 to shoot a gig?

Tonight’s gig, Secret Cinema Band, aren’t one of mine, they belong from a shooting perspective to @magictina, so I didn’t pack my kit, just the S90. Plus I was feeling a bit rubbish. And I’ve had a spat with JWZ and his crappy iPhone shots where he refuses to carry another gizmo and I maintain […]
