Bloc Party shot for The Saturday Times magazine in Liverpool. They were playing the NME new bands tour and were bottom of the bill. I think the other 4 bands were The Kaizer Chiefs, The Futureheads and The Killers headlining. This shot is my homage to Gered Mankowitz’s famous shot of The Rolling Stones behind a mesh.
Nu-metal Armenian-American nutters System Of A Down for Q magazine. Shot in a car park outside the venue in Austin, Texas. Obviously the was not the original concept for the shoot but the band were not impressed by the art director’s ideas so I had to think on my feet. One of this band described himself as a ‘poet’.
Norman Cook, AKA Fatboy Slim, for the cover of SNOOZER magazine in Ibiza years back, it was so hot, poor old Norman was melting, who arranges for a photo-shoot in Ibiza in August around mid afternoon?!
