The Cruel Sea

Seemed like only last month I was at the Gov watching Tex Perkins.. Hold on I was.. with Tex touring in September with his band The Dark Horses.

This time though he was back with the band I’m more familiar with, The Cruel Sea. Being the proud owner of all the Cruel Sea CDs and seeing them a few times whilst living in Melbourne I was pretty stoked to get access to the gig to take photos for Faster Louder. It’s been over 10 years I reckon since I last saw them live, as these days they don’t get together and tour very often, but the way they played no one would have guessed the long breaks between performing. With such a large selection of great tracks to select from the nights set list was pretty sweet.  The Full Gallery of images can be found HERE < Clicky

I’ve been to plenty of Festivals in my time with the main Multiday festival that I attend annually being Womadelaide. I’ve always wished that Womadelaide could be an event that you could camp at as lugging low back chairs/eskys/ Sun shelters/rugs etc back and forth each day from wherever you managed to get a park can be VERY tiring.

Once I realised that the Falls Festival in Tassie coincided with me being present in Tasmania It didn’t take much to decide attend my first camping music festival. I’m sure its going to be an awesome experience and I’m looking forward to bringing you some quality photos from the event.

There is a solid line up of performers at this years event with Interpol, The National and Joan Jett and the blackhearts as some of the headliners plus lots of other great local and international bands. I’m not going to list them all as you can easily check them all out at the Falls Festival Website .

I’m currently looking at the Bios of a handfull of performers and artists that I wasnt that knowledgable on to acquaint myself with some of their work and finding some Gems.

Tickets are still available for the Marion Bay show so what are you waiting for ?


EDIT: Provisional Program is now up on the Falls Festival main page
