Tom Walker Vinyl Artwork

I'm quite proud of this artwork imagery for Tom Walker live at Metropolis. I listen to my vinyl copy of this record a fair bit, 'Wait For You' especially is a beautiful track. and it really worked well with that delicate detail and immediacy of live vinyl recording. Lovely group of musicians all around, there was such a nice energy in the studio. Apparently the vinyl went to number one in the UK vinyl chart after release...

Frank Carter Vinyl Artwork

It's an honour for my imagery to be used as vinyl artwork by Frank Carter for his recent release - Live to Vinyl at Metropolis.

There's something very special about seeing one's work on a vinyl sleeve, adding to the repository of this very special form of creative output. The format is so expansive and unashamedly un-compact, unlike almost all other imagery and information nowadays. It's even better when it's for an artist you genuinely admire.

Clash Live: Laurel and Anteros at Metropolis Studios

Laurel is an accomplished wordsmith with a heavenly voice, Anteros a brutally exciting pop rock band ("bitter dream pop" in their own words), both are set for great things. The gig was a massive hit- such a contrast of styles working so well is testament to the curatorial nouse of the teams at Clash Magazine and Metropolis.
