Archive for the ‘Platform 5 Photo’s’ Category

This was a gig I really wanted to go to. I missed the opportunity to photograph Tank Trap before so was very pleased to get the opportunity last night and they did not disappoint.  Thumbscrew and the Flicknife Barbers were recently recommended to me and again… WOW, so very glad I caught these guys and had the chance to capture the moment.  Both bands I highly recommend you check out.

Big thank you must also go to Platform 5 in Ashford for allowing me to come along and capture their evening.  The hospitality of this venue was amazing and they give so many bands the chance to perform, you really must get down and catch a gig at this place!

So here follows a very, very small amount of the photography taken from this evening.  For full evenings photography please go to, Facebook, this gig only

As the night’s music began the four members of Tank Trap emerged from the crowd and took to the stage.  Tank Trap brought their style of blues rock to Ashford.  Showing their many talents front man Ian Day revealed a new one.  The ability to break any mic just by touching it.  One by one he fearlessly slayed mics like they were marauding dragons until he made peace.

So this gig was quite some time ago now but all in the name of a fantastic charity.  A lot of hard work and time put into this by many people and it proved a huge success.  I for one thoroughly enjoyed it and it was one of the first gigs I photographed, so the start of something big for me.
