“The early part of the slot was very measured; keeping a lid on what was to come. “

“If you are going to get a crowd warmed up on a cold night, and the temperatures were dropping, bring in a ceilidh band.”

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.
