So I was pretty thrashed to several inches of my life but quite fancied the look of this Hendre night. It was marketed as a night of own songs and covers of Nirvana and Pixies songs which was enough of a prompt, added to folks high regard for Valleum’s recent output on these pages, though it turned out to not be more than 1 cover from each so really it was a good job there was enough else in their performances to keep the attention.

Sonic Boom Six

(neil crud) This gig was put on by Complete Control Music. They asked if I would film the gig and get a ‘name’ band to play, the £500 budget didn’t stretch as far as The Damned or The Alarm, who I had connections with, so a young Sonic Boom Six headlined with sparsely populated show.
It was really hard to edit the videos due to a shit light show, plus one of the main cameramen left a light filter on his camera so all his footage was basically black and unusable! Also CCM couldn’t afford a proper recording so the sound was from the cameras and through the mixing desk. Probably the hardest bit of editing I’ve ever had to do.
