Although the online review only features a repro of the book cover (also shot by DP), Michael Barclay’s June 6th Maclean’s review of Geoff Pevere’s book Teenage Head: Gods of the Hammer, features my favourite Frankie Venom photo.
I recently had my first exhibit of photographs in the USA – at 1-2-3-4-Go! Records’ Gallery in Oakland CA, and did my Out-Of-Focus Talking Slideshow at Adobe Books in SF. Sam Lefebvre interviewed me and wrote this piece for the SF Weekly. Thank you to everyone in the Bay Area who came to both events and showed me such incredible warmth and support.
I also helped record a new album for Flesh World. Here is their drummer Diane in her bedroom.
There are no cats in this stylish video ad, unfortunately. But there are pretty pictures and a guy with a “radio voice”. This ad was created by the brilliant Kevan Byrne. Thanks, Kevan!

Aww, isn’t he adorable? Backstage at the Horseshoe, a couple of years ago.
