Folk Punk band Ferocious Dog at Rough Trade Nottingham as part of Nottingham’s best music festival Hockley Hustle.
Another energetic one, ending up off my feet and on stage a few times, shoutout to one of the roadies in the crowd that picked me up off the floor all night (and threw me in the mosh pit at one point).
Promoting their new album 'Joy as an Act of Resistance' the five-piece played their hearts out in the most perfect packed out venue, even with a setlist formed live of audience requests: 'What's your name? Where'd you come from?', 'Do you know any Idles songs?'
I was definitely part of the action in more ways than one for this shoot. Idles have a tenancy to enter the crowd, and not just frontman Joe Talbot, we are talking guitarists Mark Bowen and Lee Kiernan crowd surfing and passing the mics around the mosh pit, if the crowd could lift drummer Jon Beavis still playing I'm sure they would have.
Still buzzing from it to be honest. Oh and go buy the album, it's mint.
High shutter, high ISO and high frames per second to capture the pure energy from the whole band, I commend Sony on their stella autofocus from the A7RII, makes me want an 'RIII even more!
Had fun with this one and tried to make something a little different from most grime promo’s I see all while keeping current.
You can get tickets for the Nottingham gig here and I’ll see you there.
