Venue: Factory Theatre, Sydney-June 26, 2015
It seemed to be a night of trio punk bands on Friday night as Texan-post-punk-band Spray Paint headlined with support by 80s-Australian-punk- band feedtime brought their minimalist punk approach to the Factory Theatre. Spray Paint has been on tour the last couple of months in Japan and Australia promoting their new LP Punters on the Barge (Homeless Records). The band’s jarring use of cold, metallic screeching noise and distortion combined with singing almost David Byrne-ish at times brought a sound of blissful dissonance. Disarming yet pleasing. The band sounded tight and the drummer was phenomenal. It is a mystery how he can sing and perform brutal drumming at the same time. Amazing.
Photographic highlights of the show are presented below:

My entry into the photography world is purely an extension of my love affair with music.
My entry into the photography world is purely an extension of my love affair with music. The first event I ever attended was the Big Day Out festival in 1992 as a 13 year old, catching the likes of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Sonic Youth, Iggy Pop and local legends Tumbleweed. I caught the bug and just loved the indie scene. Some 20 years and countless gigs later I wanted to go from behind the barrier to behind the camera.
Photographic residencies Include:The Manning Bar, Max Watts house Of Music and the Roller Den. Each venue sees a huge variety of local and international artists come through the doors making each shoot a unique challenge.
