The three things that hit you instantly about Baker’s photography or at least hit me instantly are the naturalness he seems to bring out of his subjects, the retro feel and the sense that there is a narrative to the photographs. It’s all very well taking pictures that look visually brilliant which Baker does but if there’s no sense of story that drags you into the photograph well there’s not much point, is there? And Baker in his work certainly doesn’t overlook this aspect. Possibly it’s the writer in me that loves a sense of narrative in everything.

Courtney Love Speaks About Possible Hole Reunion!

Hole back in the day!

Hole back in the day!

Courtney Love has said that she would consider been part of a revived version of her former band band Hole but has stated that she doesn’t want to be part of the “oldies circuit.” The singer is qouted as saying that she would only consider the reunion if the band created “music that’s relevant to now” with a “modern producer.”

Love previously had ruled out the reunion with the band who had hits such as Doll Parts, Violet and Malibu but has since said,

“It’s more important for me to act right now than to play rock’n’ roll. Me and Melissa and Patty and Eric have rehearsed a few times. We have to make some music that’s relevant to now, and we’d have to get a modern producer. My relationships with Melissa, Patty, and Eric are all great. At this point in my life, no one is my enemy. Any grudges or issues with that past? I’m done with it.”

Would be good to see a return so I hope it happens! 🙂

James Byron Goes To The Courtney Love Concert In Nottingham Rock City!

James Byron has shared pics on his Twitter and Facebook pages from the Courtney Love gig in Nottingham Rock City with Micko and Shawn from Courtney’s band. Micko’s actually quite easy on the eye. I think I might be in love! Hehe! 🙂

It is Love’s first UK tour since her former band Hole’s 2010 tour and the tour comprises of eight tour dates in Nottingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol and two shows in London.

He sported a fab Courtney/Hole t-shirt, black trousers with white stripes and with his trademark blonde hair back for the concert.

Check out the pics here:
