“ Playing to people sitting down is a new experience for me” Ed Graham…

There is an unlikely jewel nestling on the Suffolk/Norfolk border, that only a few select people have discovered.

Club Uniquity Is Suffolks jewel in the crown. The converted barn, in the grounds of the Dukes head public house at Somerleyton, hosts a selection of varied musical acts on the last Friday of every month.

Somerleyton’s Club Uniquity is proving to be the cornucopia of Suffolk.

Inside the heart of Club Uniquity , the decor of comfortable sofas and twinkling fairy lights, create a cosy, intimate ambience between the audience and the acts on stage.

Above the stage in proud lettering is the mantra “This club was built with love”, and once you walk in you can definitely feel that love, in the very mortar that holds the bricks together.

Nick took the opportunity to experience the delights of Club Uniquity for himself and to catch up with Ed Graham and his new band. The Cryptids consist of Ed on drums, Andy Martin vocals and bass guitar, and Lyle Ferris lead vocals and lead guitar. They rocked the club to it’s very core, delighting the crowds with Lyles unique lead vocals and Ed’s skilful drumming techniques.

Nick took some time with The Cryptids after their set, to sit and relax, and discuss the bands next venue. Of course some shots of Nick and the band were taken.

“The Cryptids absolutely nailed it. They have a fantastic sound. Watch

this space. The Cryptids are definitely going places”.

Nick is nearing the completion of a previous long-running project with the charismatic Ed Graham. A selection of candid and performance images, documenting Ed Graham’s personal and professional life over the last four years is set to be published in a fine art photographic book.

“It’s Been a wonderful project. Ed is such an interesting character

and a great friend. We have had some fun together on this project”
