All Hail To The Al

Al Murray at Planet Rock Nick was commissioned recently for a shoot that was a little bit off the wall.

Although we don’t usually bring you news of everything he shoots, this one was particularly fun so we thought you’d like it.

‘The Pub Landlord’ and legendary comedian, Al Murray, is joining the fabulous Planet Rock presenting a Sunday morning show from 10-12 called Defender of the Planet Rock Tradition from May 26th.

Nick’s Snap-book

flickr-logo-button-500x500Nick has been looking at producing a ‘snap-book’ of him working for some time so we’ve put together an electronic library of snaps we’ve taken of Nick over the years.

We’ll let Nick explain thoughts behind his project:

“For some time I’ve wanted to do a snap book, just a personal thing, the modern-day equivalent of the traditional photograph album.

“I was initially looking to record some reportage stuff myself but then thought it would be a good idea to include some shots from the archive that have been taken of me.

“It’s not ‘The Nick Elliott Self-Appreciation Society’, they’re just quick grabs taken on phones, compact cameras, so nothing serious really.

“It’s just a record and a bit of fun and I’m planning to update it now and again when the mood takes me.”
