We had the pleasure of attending Burns night Supper in Edinburgh with our friends at Primordial Radio. The evening was a stark contrast to the night before with the guests swapping their usual battle jackets and jeans for something a little more formal. There was plenty of Pride of Primordial tartan, which celebrated its first birthday, on show from Kilts and dresses to ties, pocket squares, and cufflinks. It was an evening to remember with the traditional bagpipes, address to the Haggis (with added translation for us Sassenachs) and all the traditional speeches and poetry.
We were invited to Primordial Presents Live 2. This is the second of Primordial Radio’s free gigs that showcases new and upcoming bands while raising money for charity. Once again the event was held at Rebellion in Manchester. The charities being supported were Manchester Mind and Heavy Metal Truants. Headlining this edition were Tequila Mockingbyrd, who were supported by Jackal’s Backbone, Saurr and Blind River.
We were invited to photograph the Friday night of the Lancaster Music Festival. This was held at The Sugarhouse, with Massive wagons headlining. Support came from Sold to the Sky and Tequila Mockingbyrd. This was a big night for local band Massive Wagons as this was their first 1000 cap sell out show. The event was compered by Dewsbury from Primordial Radio.
We were invited to Primordial Radio’s Big Bang 3 event, which took place at Ogri MCC Clubhouse in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. The event was held on Friday Sept 27th and Saturday Sept 28th, two nights of music, fun, and laughter with friends both old and new. On Friday there was Sing While You’re Mingin’ Rock Karaoke, while Saturday night’s entertainment consisted of headliners Bootyard Bandits, who say they are “a bootscootin’ tongue-in-cheek country rock band”, with support from Last Call, who are a Nu Metal tribute band, both supplying copious amounts of energy to feed the crowd and keep them bouncing and dancing till it was time for a specially curated Primordial Radio playlist to keep the late night revellers up and dancing till the early hours.
