Cortina!

Ace Hurt is totally my new hero.

The gig last night was epic!! Cortina played all the tracks off the demo CD, ie 2001 Ways to Love Me, I Am Not An American, Entity, the Industrial Song and more, and the crowd were writhing joyously in their collective palm. Backing tapes, outstanding riffage, unbelievable camel-toe, Dreamboy, electro synth organ substitute, a ride-on child's toy and more! The set concluded on an uncertain note, following an encore of Love Grows on Trees, with the band undecided as to whether they ought play some more or stop. The crowd consensus was a definite 'more!!' but Cortina were convinced that what was needed was in fact more beer.


Bek goes off... Can you see those boots?!


Dreamboy looked dreamy throughout, as he should.


Camel-toe never looked so good!!

Ace sent the girls into a spin partway through the set when he removed his hawaiian shirt to reveal the words 'FUCK YEAH' scrawled in vivid on his torso... This morning I awoke to the strains of distorted drum machine loops - and I thought so too.

I must work on reducing the blur factor.

Nah, Jess. Don't worry about the blur factor. Unless you've got some fancy high-spec digital cam which allows you to increase the speed of the film, and thus give you that fast shutter-speed and equally "fast" aperture...

But i'd be pleased with results like that... and the blurring gives it a feeling of life and movement...

I presume you took these without flash?

And finally... these live shots are better than any i've ever taken.
