While looking through some old image files I found these gems and they have been getting a little attention on my flickr account so I thought I’d post some more about them and how they were took. The subject matter is important here; the greatest working British band, 65daysofstatic. The location is also a key aspect here; Dry Bar, Manchester 2005 – I was given access to In The City 05 in Manchester which is a showcase for unsigned and up and coming bands on indie labels. 65 were on the bill to play the basement of the Dry Bar, it was so small Joe had to play guitar in the crowd narrowly sparing my manhood with his headstock as he violently played through the set.
So what brought me to the Dry bar basement watching 65? I was sent to one of their gigs and ask to review their live set despite me having full blown flu in 2004/5 my face turned to stun… everything was just stunning. I’ve since had the pleasure of interviewing them, seeing them live countless times and being stupidly proud when they achieve another milestone, it is a joy to share these memories and images with other people so click on the below images and enjoy. 65XHC
