A Quick LiveJournal Update

Peter playing acoustic at Infinity.

After staying up most of Thursday night sorting Pete’s laptop, I awoke Friday, checked my mail and saw that I had a quick photo shoot with Simon Pegg of ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ fame for the NME Christmas issue. I headed for the shoot, took the pictures I needed and then made my way back to Camden for Baby shambles at the Barfly. The show was good, there was an awful lot of stage diving from both the crowd and the QoN and in the end, a stage invasion of sorts.

Saturday was mostly spent sorting and editing pictures, I have a huge amount from the last few weeks still to upload, so if there is something you are waiting for don’t fear, it should be online in the next few days.

Sunday was the ‘XFM Winter Winderland’. I heard that the Shambles weren’t playing so I arrived there a bit later, thus missing the whole Pete / Shambles not being allowed on stage fiasco. On the way there I got a text from Drew Shambles asking if I was coming out, he said they were playing Nambucca but I couldn’t make it in time as I had to shoot Kasabian and Razorlight for NME. He did however say that there was another show at 11:45 at infinity so I decided I would try and make my way to that instead. The XFM gig was strange, I got a weird vibe from most of the crowd and it seemed that everyone who took to the stage felt it was mandatory to indulge in some form of ‘crack related humour‘. I took some pictures of Tim Wheeler, Kasabian and Razorlight and whilst in the photo pit for Tim Wheeler had the pleasure of meeting for the first time. After Razorlight finished I made my way to Infinity with and Guy. Infinity was relatively empty but the Shambles sounded great and after the show Pete headed down stairs and played another acoustic set. Everyone sat around, requested songs and sang along, it felt just like the old Albion rooms gigs and for me was definitely the high point of the day. At the end of the acoustic set Infinity’s security started chucking everyone out from the venue, the last thing I saw before I made my way home was a huge mob of fans surrounding the Peter’s van.
