GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY…

…with 80’s tinged metal band Jettblack. They recently joined Rotosound’s list of endorsees. I love the variety of Rotosound’s client list – one minute I could be on a shoot with a death metal band, the next a blues guitarist or pop group’s session player. It’s safe to say I was looking forward to shooting with these guys. Having never seen them live or met them before, so I only had their website and a couple of youtube music video’s to go by….and I wasn’t disappointed.

Yesterday I met with half of the guys at the drummer Matt’s house in Henley. The others were holed up in the recording studio for the next album. Matt’s house was huge – to put it in perspective, the bathroom was as big as most people’s bedrooms. It wasn’t just the rooms that were big, he had 2 massive HUGE dogs.

Lovely they were, I should have taken a picture!

Anyway, at the bottom of the garden was a small recording studio where we would do the shoot. Jon and Tom were great to work with and we had a good laugh too.

Here’s a little teaser picture from the shoot. Jon couldn’t help but take his shirt off. I heard a rumour he played an outdoor festival at -4 degrees without a shirt. That’s pretty hardcore.

Oh, and if you don’t know what they sound like, check out this
