"…Looking at the stage prior to a Women performance, a viewer could be forgiven for being confused about what they are about to experience. With samplers, drum machines, 5-6 amps, a full drum set (plus a seemingly random stack of toms) and cables snaking everywhere, the stage resembles a cross between a jam space and a garage sale. But when the band come out on stage, all comes clear: Women are a phenomenon. Somehow, amid what should be bedlam, the most astonishing thing occurs - actual songs emerge. Powerful, melodic, songs. Friends since childhood - two of them brothers - the band have an intuitive rapport that seems to transcend speech. A headlong collision of the basement (lo-fi pawn shop amps, and clanky, broken drums) with the synthetic (drum machine, samples, and electronics) becomes, through the filter of the band, something resembling pop music. Barely.”
You take beautiful pictures. Would you mind telling me what kind of camera you use?
Hey, thanks. I shoot with a Nikon d7000 or F4 or Minolta EX-1 most of the time. But its the film and lens that really create style or atmosphere. Most of the film stuff over the last few months has been some Fuji Superia 1600; the quality is almost too good, less grain than other 400 films I’ve tried. There’s almost too much colour and contrast.
