I run a monthly band night in Leeds centre called the Sunday Service and have only just found a moment to process the images from February’s gig.
It was a cracking gig at Verve bar, featuring three solid and significantly different acts.
Our old pals Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts returned for another round…
If you wanna hear what these images sound like, get your ears round their myspace here.
Sometimes you get a fresh creative composition not bound by the rules. But more often than not you get junk.
I’m liking the faded 70s grading too. A bit summer of 69.
You really should check out Pauls myspace here, cos his stuff is, as the kids say, sick.
I caught the next band, The Moody Gowns, when I was photographing the Leeds ‘Battle of Plumpton’ gig. The won that battle of the bands heat, with a frenetic, energetic set, and went on to win the final too.
They’re a terribly decent bunch of nutcases, who I seem to keep bumping into around Leeds, and agreed to come down and play the Sunday Service, on the condition that they ‘toned things back a bit’.
If you’ve not been checking these kiddies myspaces, you’re very naughty. I especially endorse the viewing of The Moody Gowns MS (here), cos it’s rather silly.
Anyhoos – just through I’d share a few pix from the last Sunday Service. The next one, coincidentally, is on Sunday! We’ve more ace acts lined up, so if you’re near Leeds, come on down! It’s free, so the price is clearly right. For more details visit the facebook group here or myspace here.
