June 2016

I seem to be struggling to keep my blog up to date. Finally caught up with June, just as July’s about to close. I guess I need to go to less gigs.

Best Gig

It wasn’t the strongest month. But any British Sea Power gig is always going to feature amongst my best gigs and one that involves a nice weekend away was always going to win.

Best new band

The Nova Twins were pretty impressive.

Albums of the month

  • Ash & Ice – The Kills
  • Human Performance – Parquet Courts

Best photo

Not a great month for photos. But a few of my photos from Camden Rocks were decent. This one is one of my favourites. Proves that a photo doesn’t have to always be in focus

Camden Rocks: Vukovi
