More thesis shots

12 05 2011

It has finally come to an end, this whole thesis malarkey. So here’s a few more choices picked at random from it. Again in black and white, coz well, hey it looks cool, right? That and because I can’t find all the colour images from my thesis. They’re around here somewhere – deep in that 100gb+ folder labelled ‘THESIS-IMPORTANT-FINAL’. …Chances are they’ll never be seen again, so enjoy these ones.

Aren’t they lovely? Altogether now: “oooh. aaaah. *gasp*….

Thesis : Behind the Irish Music Scene

24 03 2011

So here we are: The first samples of my thesis to date (Except in black and white). The Coloured versions will appear in a book, which I’ll hopefully put up here as a pdf after May.

I’ve basically followed bands around, arriving when they do (usually at 4pm) and going home after they do. I’ve hassled a lot of people, pointed cameras where I was told not to and woken up a disgruntled bass-player with an over enthusiastic flash (not recommended). I’ve shot the bands live, but for the book, only candid, behind the scene images will be used.

 

Let me know what you think!

 

 

 

 

 

 





Squarehead, The Workman’s Club 24.02.2011

25 02 2011

 

Squarehead were on the bill with SPIES and Croupier last night in the Workman’s Club and it seemed like everyone who was super-uber-cool was there.Which explained why I was there. And Morrissey. He was there too. I’ll post that later – I’m currently trying to flog it to d’media folk. In the meantime, enjoy pictures from my new favourite Irish band.

 

EDIT:

have a .gif too:





Croupier, Friend? and C!ties, Workman’s Club, Dublin, 10.02.2011

11 02 2011

Last night I attended the best gig I’ve been to in a long time. Croupier, Friend? and C!ties played the workman’s club to a fantastic crowd. It was the first time seeing all of these bands live, but it won’t be the last. Excellent performances all around, with a particularly strong set from Friend?.
