What up bitches I'm back!!!! (I apologise to anyone that finds the phrases 'bitches' offensive, there will not be a number appearing at the bottom of this blog for you to contact!) So its a new year! Its 2018! And yes i'm very aware its almost February and this gig was actually 3 weeks ago but I've been busy editing my latest film. Have I mentioned that I have a new short film out? Well I have a new short film out! If you haven't seen it yet I'd highly recommend watching it. Its really good! Just click any where in this sentence to go and see it. Yes this one to! I'm clever like that!!
Shameless plug over. Lets get back to talking about music. So we kicked off the year with two bands who could not of been any more different if they had tried! We had Blakalaska who came all the way from the Guernsey. Fair play! and we had aAnd?!, more on them later.
Ok lets talk about Blakalaska. They were cool. They all had glowing LED rings on and I thought it would be an awsome idea to get a picture that was all black with just these weird LED lights shining. You may have noticed, or will notice in a minute (it depends if you've looked at the pictures yet) that this picture isnt included. There is a very simple explanation for that. It didn't work! It generally helps when doing photography as your job, not to forget all the basics of photography and try and do long exposure photos with the lights on! I've got some great pictures of pure white if anyone is interested! I'll leave this idea for another time!
aAnd?!...I'm going to start by assuming the ?! is meant to be part of their name and not just a typo on my behalf (although that is very likely if you've ever read anything I've ever done!). Secondly this band is mental. And I mean full on mental! Have you ever seen an extreme death/heavy metal band all wearing chequered morph suits? No I didn't think so! To be really honest I don't even know if they were extreme death/heavy metal, I don't know what the hell they were. All I know is that they were fucking brilliant and I cant tell you why! They're probably one of the most memorable bands I've ever photographed! I loved them! I want to get them and a few other stand out bands from the last year back to do another show. However that would involve organising something and that's not my strong point! Nick!!
Anyway that's enough of me rambling for now. What's coming up in the next few months for me I don't hear you asking. Well I've got a few more gigs coming up in the next couple of weeks that I will try and put up blogs for. Then I head off on tour for a month. Exciting stuff right! Ok lets leave it there. Remember to like, comment, subscribe, do something else that I've forgotten, re tweet, like on Instagram, WATCH MY NEW VIDEO!, write some new years resolutions, forget about all of your resolutions, buy a copy of the Andover Advertiser (the missus works there so buy it if you want to read some actually good writing, unlike this rubbish!), play me on trivia crack (slightly addicted to it) and yeah that will do. I've run out of ideas. I'm going to go make some dinner. Peace!! Watch my video!!!
