Cut Copy at The Tivoli

It was a night that had it all: drinks, drugs, fighting, guys mopping up their own blood, girls mopping up their own blood, police cars and ambulances outside at the end of the night… And somewhere in the midst of all that Cut Copy played a gig to a sell out Tivoli crowd. The night […]

Me vs Splendour In The Grass Part 2

The final additions to the 2008 Splendour In The Grass festival were announced recently, to go with the already announced list that I blogged about here, with the final 21 bands being as follows: The Polyphonic Spree The Drones Bluejuice Lyrics Born New Young Pony Club Yves Klein Blue Tokyo Police Club Little Red Clare […]

Biffy and Blunt

Got one of my Biffy Clyro photos in the latest edition of Blunt magazine, the one with The Living End and Foxboro Hot Tubs on the front cover (#71). It’s always good getting a telephone call requesting a photo from a publication that you’ve not been published in before. So yay for me.

The Lonely Coming Down Photoshoot

My friend Danica from The Holy Bible called me up again about doing a photo shoot for another band she’s in, The Lonely Coming Down. It’s the law in Brisbane that if you play in a band, you have to have to be in at least one other band… (The best example of this is […]

Masters of Music Photography: Part 3 – Gered Mankowitz

Although I have some albums with Gered Mankowitz covers, including Kate Bush’s ‘Lionheart’ and he is probably best know for his cover for the Rolling Stones album ‘Between the Buttons’, his live work was something that I was largely introduced to when he had an exhibition of his Rolling Stones photos at the Proud Gallery […]
