cadavers, monkeys & agony: the evidence
Some photos from Thursday’s gig at The Pipeline, courtesy Chris Hibberd: pic 3) Be Kind Cadaver, pic 6) The Organ Grinder’s Monkey, pic 8) by Mik Hanscomb.
gig or 50’s Communist jazz club rally? YOU decide
Thanks to Leroy Brown Photography for these noirish shots of last week’s gig with Austerity (fig. 5) & Blue Spectre (6)… Here you see me modelling the “epicene villain” look… Was a great night, very intense, and these capture some of that dark energy (I’m all in favour of Dark Energy, as I hope you know by now). Behold!
2017 in fuzzy pixels
Quite a full year: a new live band plus lots of gigs, an EP release and tour. Here’s to another like it, but more so – it’s been great, and thanks everyone who’s listened. (Should point out, I do own more than one shirt… look closely and you’ll see they’re not all the same garment – just very, very similar. Maybe next year I’ll experiment with another colour or two. Maybe.)
Guitars Who Cares gig pix
Photos of the band onstage at the Guitars Who Cares all-dayer, put on by Poupee Visage at Green Door Store (as you just might be able to tell from the glowing backdrop). They’re grainy because they’re stills from a video camera – sadly the footage was unusable because we were too loud for the mic. It was a good gig.
18th Dec gig photos
Some photos by Heather Johnson of last night’s Green Door Store gig supporting I, Ludicrous (except no. 4, by Phil of Spinning Chilli).
Went very well, especially for a first gig as a duo. A high note to finish 2016 on.
(Think I, Ludicrous have forgiven me for bailing out on their set due to transport issues the first time I supported them a while ago… They were inconsolable for years, of course.)
Balcony Session live: behind the scenes
fireworks, car alarms, gales and rain
A few pics taken by Andrew Nicholls & others at Angle Magazine HQ in Eastbourne last week – where I went to perform a live music video as part of their Balcony Sessions series. Went pretty well… climate and other distractions aside.
Look out for the session on their website.
(Except it never appeared: the magazine went under before they got around to it. Ah well, was fun)
Wed 8 July gig – photos to snare the eye!
grey is not a rock n roll colour
The Phantom Hound gig went down on Wednesday, and here on my Facebook page are some great photos taken by Andrea Shamlou – all the artists, all the atmosphere, the very smells themselves.
Many thanks to those who came, those who played, and those who supported in other ways: it was a blast. Hopefully I’ll do it all again in September, but different. x
