Enuff Z'Nuff playing live in London
at The Underworld, Camden, Dec 1996.
The photos on this page show one of my earliest experiences shooting
at a 'non-pub' show. I was invited by a great band who I knew quite
well (called Passion Street) to shoot their set at The Underworld in
Camden. They were supporting a band I was (and always will be!) a massive
fan of, called Enuff Z'Nuff. Backstage, after Passion Street's, set
I spoke to Chip Z'Nuff and asked if I could take some pics. To be honest
I didn't even properly hear Chip's response but the security seemed
happy to let me on stage a couple of times so I'm assuming I was given
the thumbs up! Here are the pics... this was in 1996 so it's all on
35mm film. I used a fully manual camera, a second hand Nikon FM (camera
info for gear nerds here) fitted with a standard Nikon 50mm lens
and Ilford HP5 film which I developed myself, push processing it to
Enuff Z'Nuff are still as good as ever, although they've sadly had to
make changes along the way. They go out as a trio these days. Find out

If hard Rock is your thing, here's your new favourite band...
Unlike many of London's other legendary venues like The Marquee, The
Mean Fiddler, The Astoria, etc... The Underworld is still putting great
bands on, and has long been the heart of Camden's Rock scene. In fact
I was there recently, in May, shooting bands at the Camden Rocks festival.
If you know the venue you may be able to see in the pics that the stage
layout has changed since 1996. Nowadays the stage doesn't stretch across
the back wall anymore. It is at a diagonal angle to the main room meaning
that the supporting column is no longer in the middle of the stage,
but instead provides a handy photography leaning post at the side of
There's a great video that really captures the essence of this venue.
Check out Your Demise's track "Life
Of Luxury" with all the footage taken at their show at The
Underworld. I'm happy to say that I was there shooting this show too.
You may even see me taking photos, using that column for protection!
It's such a good venue that deserves iconic status... long may it continue
to host awesome music!
