The Queers brought their legendary punk rock show to Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern in front of a rabid audience. There was crowdsurfing, a mosh pot, and even a few scuffles, but a great show all around. Loud and fast, just as a good punk show should be. Opening were The Swabs, The Riptides and The Apers, all putting on a great show. All shot on a Pentax K10D, F 50mm 1:1.4.

Heavy psychedelic stoner rock heavyweights Atomic Bitchwax, with Monster Magnet’s Ed Mundell and Godspeed’s Chris Kosnik, played an intimate, but very busy Old Angel in Nottingham, one of the undiscovered gems in the UK stoner scene. Bitchwax fuzzed out and all-together it was a very special gig, with the Truckfighters on the same bill. Shot with a Nikon D200, Sigma 24-70mmD 1:2.8 EX DG.

Ministry’s last tour, the “C U LA Tour”, stopped by Toronto’s Koolhaus. I was really grateful to see the show and see Ministry’s founder Al Jourgenssen rock the haus with opener Meshuggah! Although, not the easiest concert to shoot with a fence in the way. Problematic pics shot with a Canon EOS 20D, Canon 17-85 USM IS.

Coventry’s finest heavy riffing stoner band General exported their madness to Stratford, the home of the bard was shaking all night long. Pummelling drums, immense bass, growling vocals and over powering guitar mixed together to make the whole room tremor. General are an experience not to miss. Got the shots on a Nikon D200, Sigma 24-70mmD 1:2.8 EX DG.
