goNORTH radio was hosted at the Mercure for the two day event.

The mixture of approaches adopted by the trainees combined with a startling array of talent being interviewed, combined with the buzz of being part of a live recording created a great environment to escape for a few minutes or indeed hours.

Life-long engagement with music and a truly eclectic taste (although prog-rock and metal will usually have me scrambling for the off button). If pushed, I would have to say the Velvet Underground are one of the most important band’s of all time.

Around the same time I started taking photographs and, to be brief, performance and photography were made for each other: perfect match.
