I've got man flu, thats why these pictures are late going up. Have I mentioned I'm dying yet? Anyway! Last Saturday the college put on a music night in the Rockhouse as part of their course. No I cant remember what course it is, Yes I have been told hundreds of times. My memory is shocking these days!
The night was started off by the college all stars band, which consisted of about 15 musicians from the college playing a bunch of covers and each swapping instruments and line ups every song. They were actually pretty good and I was singing along to Sk8er Boi at one point. (Yes I like old school Avril Lavigne, deal with it, although I will happily admit that hello kitty song she did may be one of the worst things I've ever heard!)
Moving on we had The Revenant, not going to say to much about them as its the third time I've photographed them in 10 days, although I will say they were awesome again and there cover of 'Teenage Dirt Bag' is brilliant. I will also say that one of their guitarists looks uncannily like one of my mates. I'm not going to say which one or which mate though!
Pugwell! Brilliant three piece, tight as fuck (musically, I dunno what their like with their wallets!), everyone loved them. I thought it was wicked to see the lead singer wearing a 'Rueban' t shirt as I saw them about 10 years ago in Winchester. Yeah I'm getting old!
Personally my favorite band of the night though was Reventure. These boys were awesome!! Fuck me did they make me work hard to get pictures! I have no idea how to explain their music but it was awesome. Their singer was running around like a maniac and I was sprinting to keep up. It was commented later that no one had ever seen me run before or move so fast! I almost got my head taken off at one point by the guitarist as he was going crazy in the middle of the room! I would love to shoot this band again!! I think one of my mates summed them up brilliantly with the line 'I dunno what the fucks going on but I'm loving this!!'
Ok thats a lot of words there! If you've read my blog before you'll know I usually run out of things to say after about the first line. Maybe man flu is good for my writing ability. Have I mentioned I'm ill yet? This week I'm heading out of Andover to shoot a band for the first time in almost a year, thinking about it, the gigs on Saturday, I should probably check its not an April fools joke that there actually is a show!
Also next week I'll be starting a new series currently called 'Pic of the Week', the name might change if I think of something snappier or better! Anyway look out for that and as usual, like, comment, share etc etc etc!!
