THE FLEECE, BRISTOL, 21st March

We moved from the O2 Academy to The Fleece in Bristol just two days later, Saturday 21st March. The Fleece is a popular venue and on this night hosted The Tuts, who supported none other than The Selecter. The Tuts are an all girl indie punk band from West London, again we were covering the event with photos for the website and a review for (Music Trespass­). The Tuts contributed to an enjoyable night of music, the photos can be seen here. (link).

The Selecter first formed in 1979 and have been performing ska and 2 Tone music for approaching three decades. They are one of the most iconic bands of the ska and 2 Tone movement and have produced many hits over the years, such as Missing Words and On My Radio. Fronted by Pauline Black and Arthur “Gaps” Hendrickson, they are more popular than ever and tour throughout the UK.

We at Icarus captured the best moments of the performance, using the back drop of strobe lighting to good effect. The compact stage at The Fleece provided an intimate setting for both The Selecter and The Tuts, and allowed for the photography that can be seen here.

O2 ACADEMY­ BRISTOL, 19TH MARCH 2015

We found ourselves at the O2 Academy on the evening of Thursday 19th March providing photography and a music review for (Music Trespass), follow the link to their site. A memorable night was had by all as new wave and punk group The Rezillos provided support for The Stranglers. The Rezillos, formed in Edinburgh in 1976, performed a feisty brand of punk and new wave that struck a chord with the audience. We managed to get a whole range of shots that showed what this band was all about, the gallery can be viewed here. The Stranglers need little introduction, forming originally in 1974, their mixture of punk and rock music has earned them 23 UK Top 40 singles and 17 UK Top 40 albums. They entertained the audience with classic hits such as Golden Brown and No More Heroes and some of their newer material. Again Icarus took a range of shots that show the spirit of The Stranglers, the gallery can be seen here.
