14th December 2011 – Sex Wax & Rock ‘n’ Roll

A little perturbed by the title of my post? Fear not, I will explain. I shot Godsized at their final show of 2011 and the debut show with their new drummer – Dan. Arriving at The Borderline, London (after resisting the awesome Crobar next door for a sneaky drink) Eye for an Eye were just wrapping up their set. The guys were in good spirits in the dressing room I went to say hey to Dan and introduce myself. He’s a complete dude, and has the coolest story to tell about James Hetfield that I’ve ever heard.

They’ve picked up quite a fair few fans on their way around Europe, including a guy who traveled from Kazakhstan to see them here in London. I was honoured to meet him. Playing on the same night as Steel Panther, Motley Crue and Def Leppard; Godsized still managed to pack the Borderline and ensure it would be a sweat-fest, with fans singing and shouting along, along with plenty of opportunities to eat your neighbours’ hair as it was being whipped around! Let’s get down to the pics… (click to view bigger) The guys did me proud. Sorry, what was that?
