The Vaccines

I photographed the Vaccines tonight at Brixton Academy in, yes, Brixton. Oh it took me back, just as the band came on a pint of beer was thrown from the crowd and soaked about 6 of us photographers before bouncing across the stage. What a lot of fun that was. Anyway, the band were mighty impressive. I bumped into one of their managers, James whilst I was heading backstage to exit. I also bumped into Alex Kapranos from Franz Ferdinand. Both of them are such a nice chaps. They always seems happy and quite normal.

I got some reasonable shots of the Vaccines. I have to say that there was only one photographer I knew in the photo pit and there were about 15 of them there. Where have all the usual suspects gone these days....
