Triston Finnis proved his tenacity and passion for live music over the weekend, bringing it to a field in front of hundreds of like-minded people. The Socially Distanced Festival organised by Twisted Melon Promotions was a refreshing and welcomed re-introduction to festival fever by audiences and performers alike. The excitement and electric atmosphere was palpable as festival goers soaked up the sun and music.
Backstage the performers turned up, strummed and tapped, eagerly waiting for their set time. The festival was organised to perfection, adhering to all social distancing and COVID-19 government guidelines. Nick was invited to the festival to continue his Rockumentary project with the talented Jon peach, whose set in the acoustic tent was a resounding success. Nick chatted backstage with Neville Staple and Roddy Radiation and the Ska Billy Rebels, both from the popular 1980s band ‘The Specials’. Saturday nights highlight,was witnessing Tom Lumley and the Brave Liaison,rock the crowd to a selection of their original alternative rock tracks. Nick captured the band in his unique rock ‘n’ roll style whilst they shook the stage and filled the air with electricity.
“ The Socially Distanced Festival was a resounding success. Hopefully many more to come. I give my full support to Triston Finnis and his team for sticking it out to make this work so well despite being subject to heavy flak during the whole process of putting it together. See you next year“. (Nick Elliott)
Thanks to Triston Finnis and Twisted Melon Promotions for proving that with these kind of organisational skills it is still viable to continue with these events,in a forgotten industry that has been left to fend for itself.

Earl Slick and the founder member of the Sex Pistols, Glen Matlock throughout the summer have been playing to packed venues across the UK as they continue their tour together.
Nick caught up with them towards the end of May at the Waterfront in Norwich picking it up halfway through the tour. Not one more punter could be squeezed into the venue. And The Philistine‘s performed effortlessly to a cheering crowd.
Nick was invited by Earl to do what he does best and shot the whole show, these images will be released sometime next year in a very special picture book project that the two have been working on for the past four years.
Some well known faces in the crowd included Dave Donley and the wonderful Jess Smith, who was Earls guitar tech on the night.

“It’s always a pleasure to catch up with friends that are such iconic legends in the music business. They have had such a massive impact on mine and other peoples lives over so many years.

Nick’s long-standing project with Earl Slick is nearing its completion. For the last four years Nick has been shooting Earl for a fine art book containing candid and performance shots of this music legend.
Earl, David Bowie‘s lead guitarist who toured with him for several years, takes the opportunity to hook up with Nick when he’s over from the USA, to continue the project.
Nick’s fine art photographic book will be released early next year in conjunction with Earl’s autobiography published by Penguin, depicting his work with the musical heavyweights such as John Lennon and the New York dolls.
“ Throughout the time of working with this Legendury artist we have become very close friends and I consider this an absolute pleasure and honour to have had this opportunity to work with this great player“

Nick has never made any secret of the fact that his favourite artist of all time is the rock blues guitarist, Rory Gallagher.
Earlier this week he was invited by The Ambassador of Ireland to a celebration of the 40th anniversary of Rory’s legendary Irish Tour ’74.
Held at the Embassy of Ireland, the celebrations attracted many famous faces including lots of Nick’s musician friends, one of which was the Whitesnake’s Bernie Marsden, who has toured a tribute to Rory with his original band and playing Rory’s guitars.
And talking of guitars…Rory’s legendary Strat also made an appearance!
