Oi Oi…

Derek ‘The Draw’ hussey and the Blockheads hit us all with the Rhythm Sticks at the Norwich Arts Centre, during a fantastic performance that had the wall to wall crowd on their feet.

The Marmalade spreads great music…

A cold, wet, dark evening was decidedly warmed up as Nick met up for supper with four great friends at a pub in Skegness. It’s been awhile since Nick has seen Sandy and John Newman, but the re-connection of these close friends was evident over a couple of JD’s, in the surroundings of a cosy pub.The friendly chatter didn’t last long as an 8…

An evening with a gentle man…

Nick bid a fond farewell to the gentleman of country folk, Charlie Landsborough during his farewell tour.

A Day out in Norwidge….

When Nick met up with Earl Slick in Norwich in November, there was a quick lesson on the pronunciation of Norwich and the history of Coleman’s Mustard.

Festival Too Kings Lynn UK…

The remarkable thing about the Kings Lynn Festival Too is not the exceptionally top quality artist’s  that came to play, or the 6000+ strong crowd, or the wonderful outdoor central venue of Kings Lynn.  The remarkable thing about this festival is that it’s free! Nick was personally invited to shoot the headlining act ‘Cast’ and Marty Pellow, by the organisers of the festival.  Nick…

Nick’s a Philistine…

…well almost! Over the weekend, Nick has been working with ex-Sex Pistol, Glen Matlock, whilst he was performing with his band the Philistines at the Voewood festival.
