The last rallying call as musicians celebrate the pro independence movement (see our disclaimer, below) at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh. See our review of the evening, but here are some picture;

Say Yes-2

Ed – Disclaimer whilst we have tried to remain impartial throughout the referendum campaign it is difficult to turn down an opportunity to cover such an event. I can say with every confidence that had there been a similar event for the other perspective we would have made every opportunity to cover it too.

Life-long engagement with music and a truly eclectic taste (although prog-rock and metal will usually have me scrambling for the off button). If pushed, I would have to say the Velvet Underground are one of the most important band’s of all time. Although I consider myself first and foremost a photographer, as regards reviewing I guess I cut my teeth in the vibrant fanzine scene of the 80’s. Around the same time I started taking photographs and, to be brief, performance and photography were made for each other: perfect match.
