The Showcase for The Dees, The Album, in July 2004 at the Union Chapel in Islington, London. Right near Highbury Corner. Photographs by Conal Jones. Sound by Niall Acott. Lights and drama by Dan’s mates, inclluding Andy Audsley.
The Dees are in Studio, at Angel Studios in Islington, London.
Yesterday marked another great evening at The 100 Club with King Pleasure playing.
Great memories of a raucous gig at The Garage. We had a full compliment of backing vocals, from the amazing Rachel & Sarah.
Last night we went to another great King Pleasure gig at 100 Club.
Last night – another great gig from Ray Gellato at The 100 Club.
Just had a short jaunt to Berlin to see The Foo Fighters, with Andy & Ian. Andy did not bring a jacket, and got sick,… even though he repeatedly stressed that “you don’t get ill from being cold”. He did.
For a short while in 1997, we were known as “Borissey Mould“. This was directly after we had found that there were too many bands called “FLUX” playing, in LONDON.
Another very sparcely attended gig. At the relatively new PowerHaus in Finsbury Park. The sound was AWFUL. They should have kept the PowerHaus on Liverpool Road in N1!!
We had the privilege of recording a whole album with Niall Acott at Angel Studios. All Live, no clicks, and just a smidgen of me screaming (unknowingly) whilst recording my drum parts. Recorded in 2 days – 17th & 18th September. Mixed and produced by the fantastic Niall Acott over the following weeks.
Mailing list flyer for a FLUX gig at The Orange, and also including details for a gig at the now non-existant Duke of Lancaster in Barnet (which is now a Sainsbury’s).
This was perhaps the must UNDER-attended gig of all time. The people there were: The band: FLUX The bar staff The door staff The main sound man The monitor mix sound man The door security men The guitarist’s dad That was it.
December 1995 was BUSY for FLUX and their printing operation, me. Alex Meadows provided design consultancy.
A retrospective post. This was a setlist for the band FLUX, back when we were doing a mix of covers and our own tunes. and here is the promo poster – got to love the inkjet look.
Some pics from Brother Ed doing some recordings in 1995 ish.
Blue Bone was the name of the Bass-Drums-Guitar combo made up of Adam Drake, Alex Meadows and I. In 1995 we popped to Amberslone Cottage to make some music.
This was our first Demo – we recorded 3 tracks at Cafe Music in East London, with Mark Sutherland.
