It’s always great fun photographing Skindred who returned to the Roadmender as part of their Big Tings tour. Below are a few of the band from the pit and balcony. Support was by Sonic Boom Six and The Wax Lyrical Sound. I wrote a review of the gig for the Chronicle […]

Bauhaus legends Peter Murphy and David J played to a sold out Roadmender on Sunday night performing the band’s debut album In The Flat Field in full as well as a selection of other hits. It was the first time the duo had played Bauhaus material together in the county […]

It’s been a cracking year for The Lovely Eggs with their latest LP, This Is Eggland featuring praise from fans and critics alike. Third time playing in Northampton I think, and first time on the Roadmender’s main stage. The lighting last night was very red for the headliners, so photos […]

Echo & The Bunnymen are out on tour in support of their latest record, The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon. Despite the LP being reinterpretations of some of their biggest hits, the gig was a fairly straight forward affair. Phil Moore from New Boots wrote a review which you […]

Bass legend Mark King brought Level 42 to Northampton on Saturday night. While not touring in support of anything in particular, the band played in front of a sold out venue. Chronicle & Echo Sports Editor Jeremy Casey wrote a review of the show which you can read here:

I almost didn’t bother leaving the house last night. Too hot, Monday night etc etc. However, I’m glad I did because The Schizophonics were flipping amazing. A definite contender for the hottest gig of the year, but a fantastic performance by the San Diego ‘fuzz rock’ trio and great to see […]

This was a fantastic homecoming gig for Billy Lockett, virtually selling out the Royal & Derngate’s Royal stage. Some fantastic lighting during the show which saw Lockett perform, unaccompanied, on the piano. Joining him was Cousin Avi. First time back shooting at the R&D since Amy Macdonald’s headline gig last […]

Bedford rockers Don Broco headlined the Roadmender this week as part of the second leg of their Technology Tour. Joining them were Yungblud and The LaFontaines. The take home from this gig – keep an eye on your kit, as a 24-70 rolling off a ledge onto a concrete floor ain’t […]

Amy Macdonald kicked off her acoustic tour at Royal & Derngate in Northampton last night.  Billed as an ‘intimate’ run of gigs, Macdonald played to a pretty much sold out venue, despite admitting being unwell.  Support was by Holiday Oscar,who is also pictured below.  I wrote some words about the […]

Here’s a few photos of British Sea Power who headlined The Roadmender on Sunday night. The band are out touring in support of their latest album Let The Dancers Inherit The Party. Support was by Ill. There’s a review running over at the Northampton Chron written by Phil Moore.
