Yesterday I got to tag along to an interview between GoldenPlec and Chad Channing. When I saw this interview listed as ‘in person’ I leaped at the idea of going along to take some shots of the interview and to meet the man.
I am a huge Nirvana fan. I practically ate every book going about them and have helped set up anniversary gigs ion honour of the 20th anniversaries of Nevermind and In Utero. My favourite band of all time. So getting the opportunity to meet a former member was a no brainer.
We all went into a pub next to the Sugar Club to sit and have the interview. It was hard to hear everything given we couldn’t go to the quiet back of the pub (reserved yet empty the whole time) and the tennis played loud on the TV. I took some shots and tried to listen in to his soft spoken voice as he answered questions about himself, Nirvana and his current band, Before Cars.
We got on to the guest list for their show that. I have to say, having only heard one song that day I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very surprised. The support, Lace Weeper, were brilliant. They had an Alice in Chains acoustic vibe to them. The singer’s voice is amazing. Then Before Cars came on and I just loved their set. They were funny, they slagged where I’m from, Shannon, because they landed there and it was as loud as crickets. Yep, it’s that exciting.
I went up after, got a copy of all their albums and 7” single and got them signed by them all. So all in all a great day. I’ll be posting photos once they have appeared with the interview on Goldenplec.com.
