It's been too long-Mishka Shubaly with support @Gwdihw by Chris Chucas

It's been far too long since my last post. I've been busy wrapping up wedding work as well as doing some prep for my Ma in Documentary Photography that i'm due to start in Falmouth Uni this Jan. Like that wasn't enough on top of all that Becky and I might be buying our first house and I am having nose surgery in about 2 weeks. So all in all it's been mental.

I got talking to a good friend Gareth Jarvis, who is an insanely talented photographer that specializes in wet plate collodion images. You should definitely take a peek at his work here it's amazing. He was meeting Mishka Shubaly at the show before making a plate for him the following day. so I tagged along to have a break from editing.

I'm so glad I did becuase I managed to catch some great artists at Gwdihw. Support included The Doublecross, Andrew Skelton, Useless Eater, and Chris Ridire.


Useless Eater Michael Grindle (Deadlines, Rungus) giving it some with an acoustic. Check it out here.


Jon The Doublecross fresh from the album release last week switching things up with a few covers as well. 


Mishka was great I hadn't heard him before but brutally honest and beautifully dark is probably the only way I can describe him. he has a had a pretty crazy ride and told us a few stories, so many in fact he's wrote a book and book on sale. check him out here.

You can check him out on his UK tour there's dates all over the place including Falmouth my University town and old home of Bangers. It's great to see someone make the effort to get all the way down to Cornwall. 



Thanks for stopping by The next post will hopefully have more info on my Ma Project. Im not a reviewer go and listen to cool bands and make your own mind up.
