O2 ACADEMY­ BRISTOL, 19TH MARCH 2015

We found ourselves at the O2 Academy on the evening of Thursday 19th March providing photography and a music review for (Music Trespass), follow the link to their site. A memorable night was had by all as new wave and punk group The Rezillos provided support for The Stranglers. The Rezillos, formed in Edinburgh in 1976, performed a feisty brand of punk and new wave that struck a chord with the audience. We managed to get a whole range of shots that showed what this band was all about, the gallery can be viewed here. The Stranglers need little introduction, forming originally in 1974, their mixture of punk and rock music has earned them 23 UK Top 40 singles and 17 UK Top 40 albums. They entertained the audience with classic hits such as Golden Brown and No More Heroes and some of their newer material. Again Icarus took a range of shots that show the spirit of The Stranglers, the gallery can be seen here.
