I did a photoshoot with Steve Broadbank back in summer 2008 and used a couple of the resulting shots for a long time. However, Steve took loads more lovely photos that have never been seen before and I thought it’d be nice to put them on Flickr for your consumption. So here they are.
I just made a cheeky behind the scenes film about the demoing of my new album, New Season. Check it out to hear Matthew Reynolds sing like a girl, see me wearing a batman mask, and get a feel for urban life in Southampton. You’ll also be able to hear some rough snippets of the new songs.
My lady and I went to get our first ever tattoos this afternoon at BJ’s Tattoo Studio in Southampton (mine’s the wrist, Ruth’s is the ankle). BJ is the man. Before he opened a tattoo studio he was a session bassist and toured the world. He now does deep sea diving in quarries at the weekends, has loads of mad tattoos, and this afternoon was wearing a Rocky t-shirt. What a guy.
I finally feel like an actual proper rock star now that I have a tattoo.
Luke Leighfield interview at The Joiners, Southampton - BLOOPERS!
…or alternatively you can just watch the bloopers, which mostly consists of Carl (my bassist) talking about paedophilia, admitting that he deals drugs, and revealing that he wants to bang the ginger one from Girls Aloud. Notice how my head is perpetually in my hands.
