Evil Blizzard

There are few bands who have managed to blow me away.  Evil Blizzard managed it, though - playing Psych Fest at the weekend to a rammed District.  They were an assault on the senses - 4 bass guitars and a drummer and an attitude that just screamed Fuck You.  They were inimtadating and hilarious at the same time.  It's theatre for sure, but there's a craft here that belts out good riffs.  It has to be seen live.  Your life will be different.  Really.

LIMF 2014

Goldie

We didn't get as much time at LIMF as we would have liked, but we did get a couple of afternoons in the park.  Nice work from Goldie on Sunday and a great day on Monday at the Liverpool Legends stage.  Great to see so many people out in the park for what is becoming a must see of the summer calendar in Liverpool.

Canon 5D and 70-200mm lens still seems to deliver.

I love this. More than 1,000 copies of the Beatles' White Album form a pop up shop in the loading bay at Fact. The shop won't sell you anything. It will only buy (a White Album) from you. A kind of anti-shop.

It's an inspired choice of album, not because it's any good, but because over time the uniform white covers have evolved in line with their owners - coffee stains, doodles, foxing and any other number of flaws and patterns. From being all exactly the same on release, each one has become unique.
