Ok, so I cheated again.
I knew, when I set Friday’s prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, that I was going to see my old friend Duncan and his band on Saturday night, hence; The food of love.
Because, as we all know, that particular nutrient is music, so I thought I’d try to capture the essence of a live show in photographic form.
The band, Duch jo, (an acronym of the members’ names) play a thrilling funk/rock hybrid which sounds like Prince producing a Frank Zappa album with Sly And The Family Stone, with surreal samples and effects blending the songs together making it seem almost like a concept album.
Duncan’s heavy bass lines and rapid fire lyrics, some skillfully syncopated drumming and shredding guitar solos made the non-stop set a truly immersive musical experience.
Despite there only being a small but appreciative audience, they played as if their lives depended on it and those who stayed to the end were rewarded with a unique and musically complex show from three very talented performers.
Audrey even got to try out some of Duncan’s vocal gadgets and I took the opportunity of snapping a very grunge photo of her while she was on stage.
I also took my usual artistic licence with a few shots, including one of a rather sensory overloaded child who seemed fascinated by the band, but for whom the volume was clearly a little much, along with a long exposure with ghostly musicians.
