If you've not heard them yet, here's Kathleen:
(Last night's show was all red light, every song, no white light at all, just red, all the way through the show, every song. For anyone who's not a photographer: red stage light is the most problematic to photograph, and made even more difficult when the light levels are utterly and ridiculously low, despite a lighting setup that most professional theatres would envy. (Yes that's you I'm talking too, Assembly, not the band!) Red light washes out all of the detail and texture in photos, and you can't bring it back: the camera cannot capture nuances of shade, expression, texture. We can sometimes convert the images to reasonable black-and-white shots: this time, I wanted to embrace the red images, more as a capture of atmosphere than a documentary... Otherwise you just have to give up the photos, and simply enjoy the music. It is what it is. You'll see it in all its glory in the Toon's Tunes photo gallery for Catfish and the Bottlemen!)
