Having had the pleasure to meet Bitter Ruin because of a link with the musician Ben Folds, I was happy to get the opportunity to meet them and photograph them live. They are a magical live act and have attracted the atention of many including Stephen Fry.
The Antics - here getting up to antics.
This shot with Lucy Collett from page 3 fame was used for the Antics promotional needs.
The Antics live in Birmingham, supporting the Enemy.
Girls that Scream are a Leamington based band that I have worked with for a number of years.
The above shot was taken in my barn studio with 2 metal grinding suicide Girls.
And below some standard band shots - as you do.
The Enemy, hailing from Coventry and the West Midlands, are a 3 peice rock band who made it big with the debut album We'll Live and Die in These Towns in 2007. They have since gone on to have plenty of other sucsess. Tom Clarke, Andy Hopkins and Liam Watts make up the trio that I met in Leamington Spa in 2010 while the were working on their third album Streets in the Sky. I have been lucky enough to work with the lads on a number of occasions and even shared a couple of creative spaces with them over the years.
Local Leamington lads International Jet Set, formally known as Akeal and later known as The Antics are here having some fun high up above the Parade. They also seem to have 'borrowed' an NME award from someone. And yes - it's real!
looking through some of my old printed work and I came across this. I remember the days when I used film and printed my own work in the darkroom. This was one of those early works.
