Toxic Holocaust Live @ The Hifi Bar, Melbourne, Australia
Conjure And Command
You know, you lose track of the amount of gigs one has photographed over the past few years. You lose track real fast. One gig bleeds into the next and for the most part, you can get a little complacent and find yourself in photographic auto-pilot. But… every so often, a classic falls your way and you’re left on such a high and infected with a restless, sleep interrupting buzz – well into the cool, dark confines of the AM digits on your clock!
Toxic Holocaust fucking blew me away tonight. I’m talking smithereens here! Kaboom!
Combichrist Live @ The Hifi Bar, Melbourne, Australia
Honestly, I hadn’t heard too much of Combichrist’s catalogue but what I had heard, I did like. Add to the fact that they were a highly visual act, which would hopefully make for some cool shots, that left me in high anticipatory mode for the show! Oh yeah, I’m easily excitable!
A few days before the gig I prepared somewhat, looking over some YouTube videos of the band just to see exactly where they all stood and what sort of choreography I could expect. As far at YouTube clips go – yeah, they looked totally cool so I got a feel for what I would expect tonight.
Three Songs, No Flash
There are still a limited amount of copies of my book left. Based on my forthcoming photography exhibition, the book features over 50 of my personal favourite live music photos. It is beautifully bound in hardback form, features a dust cover and is of the highest quality possible. I would not be putting my name on it if it wasn’t.
