So, this is my first ever blog post, and although the event is nearly 4 years old and the photograph is definitely not one that I pride myself on or would choose to showcase, it was my first ”real” concert and back then I wasn’t bothered about getting a great shot of the band; I just wanted to immortalise a fragment of that night and have a keepsake of my first concert.
Speaking of first times, it was the first time I had been to Camden too, so I was extremely excited when a punk-rock-fairytale-looking shop assistant told us that these 2 bands were playing.
At the gig, the first thing I noticed was that there was no alopecia going on in the club as the guys (and girls) head-banged to the Black Sabbath-esque sound of Priestess, their set was great and opened everyone’s musical appetite for Big Elf.
Now, I don’t really have much to say about Big Elf, as we left 3 songs in to their set due to their front man, Damon Fox, being abusive towards his bandmates and making disrespectful comments to the audience. It is a shame, as I would have liked to hear more of the organ wielding mad hatter’s musical talent.
*Please note, this blog post is about the story behind the photo,a fond memory of my first concert, and not about the photo, as it was taken with a point-and-shoot compact camera*
