THRASH NIGHT, LIVERPOOL – UK

Exhausted! From a night of absolute mayhem. To Liverpool and back to London again in less than 24 hours for Earache Records ‘Thrash Night’ that was filmed for a DVD release. In short (as i can’t even string a sentence together properly) I went with Talita and Louise, many interviews with Evile and Municipal Waste, fan pictures, promo pictures. Then the live show which was SO brutal I just about managed to escape with my camera intact and almost all of my dignity. I had a decapitated pigs head shoved in my face by SSS got soaked in beer and ate a Burger King. Louise and I were so tired on the way home we listened to Heart 106.2 on the radio or something and sang along to cheesy songs. That didn’t stop Louise from filling up with petrol at the station halfway home with the radio AND the engine on!! That’s how tired we were. Pictures speak a thousand words. Here we go…

13TH – 15TH JULY 2007, GUILFEST, UK

A real mix of a festival, being quite family orientated so I secured the Rock Sound Tent for the few days and just focussed on that. Lovely weather and a great vibe, the Rock Sound tent was always busy in the day and absolutely rammed in the evenings. I met up with a few photographer friends and we chilled in the “backstage” area (being some rolled up mats and a little peace and quiet. A few of the bands on the bill I was looking forward to photograph. One band wasn’t on this particular stage, good friends of mine – Sym-Choon – they were on the 2nd stage so I whizzed over to them to photograph their set. Other than that; great friends Sennah, Exit Ten and Orange Goblin were at the Rocksound stage. To sum up the weekend I’ve made a montage of each day’s favourite shots I took. The colours are as vibrant as the festival was – that’s the best way I can describe it. A real buzz and I’d happily photograph there again. But definitely just the Rock stage I think.
