Johnny? I thought It was George.

.
Drummer In The Sun

More good images that I got in and around Artica. On the first day of the event there was a band playing on a loading dock at one end of the building we've seen the last two days. They called themselves Johnny Vancouver. I wondered why - the only Vancouver I know of is George, the British naval officer who explored the coasts of what in now Oregon, Washington, British Columbia and Alaska in the 18th Century. The delightful Canadian city is named after him.

But who can question band names? I mean, after Mott The Hoople, Smashing Pumpkins, Slick Dick And the Volkswagens and The New Pornographers, Johnny Vancouver sounds absolutely sedate. I wanted to ask them about the name but they kept on bashing away. The music wasn't exactly up my alley. I'm not much for popular music. I guess I like unpopular music. Bang On A Can, anyone?

I like the shadow of the drumstick. Hmmm, nice and warm, nice and smelly I imagine.

le portrait du batteur ressort bien, mais les chaussures sont vraiment culte

By the hair on the legs I assume it's a guy wearing those shoes. OMG! What guts!

Your humorous commentaries are as enjoyable as your photos - thanks for your report on Artica. And yes the flashy green fur boots deserved a close-up :-)

The open back of the green fur boots is such a disappointment because it would be SO COOL if those were real green fur boots instead of slip-on cover booties. :)
