Wyndford Balcony Portraits (vol. 1)

I’ve yet to have an official flat warming, but since moving into my flat I’ve had a small amount of people over while I’ve been in various stages of kitting the place out.

The balcony I have isn’t huge, but it’s still a fair enough size that hanging out there isn’t a problem.

Anyway, here’s a selection of photos from the balcony so far. If anyone in Glasgow reads this, get in touch – I’m always looking to meet/photograph new faces.

Hog Wild: A look at recording on the cheap.

When I moved back to Glasgow I didn’t have anywhere to move to, so I crashed on Stephen’s sofa for a week. Being a couple of musicians that are always ready to get a new project underway we started recording ideas, and in passing them back and forth we quickly determined our roles; Stephen would handle vocals and synths, and I’d do guitar/bass and drums.

The first track ‘Big Mistake’ came together quickly and off the back of that we decided to write and record an EP, but made the decision to limit ourselves to 7 days. Continue reading “Hog Wild: A look at recording on the cheap.”

Hogmanay 2018

Heading out for the Blythe Hogmanay Bash is a tradition I’m ok with, and this year I wasn’t tied into working in a club for the countdown so I got to spend the entire night with friends rather than doing it in two parts.

I didn’t take as many photos as I normally would which is unusual, but then again Stephen didn’t take a single photo despite having his camera round his neck most of the night…

Whitby Animal Sanctuary just rescued 1,383 hens and they need your help

Robyn, who I spend like a million hours walking dogs with on the regular, volunteers for the Whitby Wild Sanctuary and a few nights ago assisted the sanctuary in the rescue of 1,383 hens. They started at 10pm and worked through until 5am.

The sanctuary are trying to re-home as many as they can, and the amount of food they’re going to be needing over the next few weeks has obviously gone up considerably, so if you’re able to help them out with a donation then please get in touch right here and follow the instructions.

Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary-55

I spent a day volunteering with Robyn back in October and I took my camera along to document it. We watered and fed all the animals while other volunteers took care of other duties around the site.

Annoyingly I hadn’t gotten around to sharing photos from the day but as the Sanctuary needs your help right now this is probably a good a time as any for me to do that and show you just some of the injured/abandoned animals they care for.

DubRocca (Keir Rizzo Cawley) steals from hardworking Yorkshire based Promoter & DJ Dom Roffey.

Change of pace for a second here but I’ve noticed a Dom Roffey, a fellow musician I’m connected with on Facebook, going through the shit right now.

Keir Rizzo Cawley aka DubRocca managed to pull off a fairly elaborate scam that’s resulted in Dom being down both a pair of Adam A77X studio monitors and £1,500 out of pocket. Let’s get a close up of Keir and his Facebook Page.
