nastyfest 8: blacklips, deerhunter, elvis perkins & more. . .
i was at nastyfest 1 and, a few in between, but nastyfest 8 earlier this month has to be my fave so far. twas my first time witnessing a number of the bands with elvis perkins being my highlight. i missed out on the early bands (and a couple of others) but here is a selection of the 10 that i did shoot - in alphabetical order: black lips, deerhunter, elvis perkins, emmy the great, fourteen corners, grammatics, joseph, lovvers, old romantic killer band and voxtrot. ace!

we vs. death :)
in the post below i forgot about the we vs. death gig. i love this band! they make me smile. . . it was strange lighting down in them there royal park cellars. so here are some b&w shots.

some other b&w and colour shots here.

this was part of the brainwash festival - part of the oxjam series of gigs which ran throughout october. i only got to the sunday night of this alas. . .
editors & october gigs. . .
good-gigs-a-plenty last month. didn't have my camera at all of them. but i did take some shots of editors. . .

full set here, along with shots of the support band the kissaway trail here.
other sets with a few photos of how i became the bomb (strange band name. slightly strange looking band. and some good tunes. . . i enjoyed this lot. from alabama or thereabouts i do believe) and (not so odd looking. not so memorable) here and here.
other leeds gigs i went to but didn't shoot: stephanie dosen (with support from jacob golden and laura groves) at the adelphi on light night, iron&wine, fionn regan. . . must be some others but can't think. . .

i also saw cowboy junkies at the royal albert hall which was a bit special. it was the 'trinity sessions revisited' gig with ryan adams and thea gilmore. i actually cried during 'i'm so lonesome i could cry' when margo timmins, ryan and thea all sung a bit (and not because i was lonesome. . .just one of those moments that makes your hairs stand on end). one solitary pic here. i have a v dubious recording of my favourite ever cj's song 'the sun comes up, it's tuesday morning' which i might work out how to get on youtube one day. actually, just watch this instead if ya fancy.
