Urge, Kevin Harrison, Bron Area, Eyeless In Gaza

January 20th, 2013, 4:46 pm

Three sets of images, mostly experiments in long exposures.

Urge, long exposures at The Climax – not very good attempts – but at least we all get to see what the seating arrangements were likeā€¦

Eyeless In Gaza, Kevin Harrison and Bron Area at The Climax, 3rd April 1980, a very early Eyeless gig and the shot of Kevin Harrisons 20 minute guitar improvisation is one of my best shots (+ used as the basis for the cover artwork of his Inscrutably Obvious album).

Possibly my final film of the 1979-81 scene – Kevin Harrison doing a solo set at the General Wolfe for which I provided a 2 projector slideshow.

The Fall, North London Poly, 1980

January 13th, 2013, 11:54 am

Nice set of The Fall playing in London at North London Poly, November 21st, 1980. Don’t know if any of these shots appeared in Alternative Sounds but I would certainly have used the fanzine to blag my way into the gig. Is a single shot of the Au Pairs who I vaguely remember chatting to.

And thanks to the marvelous The Fall online website where I got details of the gig – there also a set of photos from the gig and I think the photographer is in one of my pictures.

A few small sets of images as I work through my last few films.
Wild Boys supporting Squad at the Climax.
The Editors supporting Urge also at the Climax, with a neat exterior shot.
Flack Off playing at the Zodiac.
Protege playing at the Hope & Anchor probably 1980-81.

Squad playing at Tiffanys with Gus Chambers looking pretty neat in a suit. Not sure if this is a support slot (possibly Upstarts gig?).

Urge at the Zodiac and Climax, The Mix at the Swanswell

December 9th, 2012, 1:12 pm

Working my way through the last few films. Urge at the Zodiac. Urge at the Climax, which had a few shots of The End at the Swanswell Tavern at the start of the film. And yes in these shots I’m struggling to take photographs in the dark, although there is a bit of the early Urge’s energy in the Zodiac shots.
