Three albums in and why Tame Impala are so well liked is still a mystery to me. I say that as someone who bought the first couple of albums to try to work out; it reminds me of when I bought the Wolfmother album to try to understand what that fuss was all about. I […]
Brown & Squire & Mani & Reni play a Future Music sideshow at Brisbane’s Riverstage and bring their shitty photo contract with them.
It’s been a quiet few months post-Rave. Truth be told, I have been away from Brisbane for a large proportion of the last two months, with work taking me down to Canberra and Sydney before a four week stint in Victoria. I did go to a few gigs while in Melbourne but one was Patrick […]
First published on Collapse Board Parklife is one of life’s musical guilty pleasures, perhaps the guiltiest. It’s like a one day adventure into another world, somewhere I’d never normally go and I always enjoy it, a lot more than most photographers who complain about it year-on-year, and yet still put their hand up to cover […]

They’re always well […]
Well. To say that I royally fucked up tonight would be a bit of an understatement. Being led through the backstage to the front of the Riverstage, the photographers are greeted with a seated audience and a barrier pushed very close up to the stage, with the gap between the stage and the barrier being […]
Photographed Parklife when it passed through Brisbane a couple of weeks ago. Not quite sure why I said I’d do it: me and dance music are generally two mutually exclusive entities… I think it was because I was asked, and flattery gets you everywhere… Despite not really looking forward to it, I actually enjoyed it […]
