The Fun Lovin’ Criminals were the first ever band I shot ‘professionally’…if it could be called that back in 2003! I’ve loved this band for years and some how have gone 10 years without seeing them live. They also tend to play pretty dark shows, so in the past my photos of them have been frankly terrible, so I was determined to do the best I could tonight.
If you want a show to lift your spirits and make you smile, go see the FLCs. They were fabulous and they’ve lost none of their laconic stage craft and slick musicianship in the years since I last saw them.
They still don’t have a decent lighting technician though (!) but fortunately professional DSLRs these days can cope admirably with even the most challenging (ie lacking) of light.
As I packed up my gear after three songs they played Scooby Snacks as they were playing their album Come Find Yourself in order. What a way to end the evening!
