The blog of a travelling psychiatrist and football lover. Who happens to be a halfway decent photographer. Takes a cynical view of the world

Lucinda Belle Orchestra at The Pheasantry Chelsea London


Right upfront I will admit my bias that I have been listening to and watching LBO for around 2 years now and have seen them play in decent size auditoria and in smaller venues. On this occasion it was a tiny venue a Pizza Express Music Club in the King’s Road. This venue is maybe even although intimate a little too small. Having said that the acoustics were fine and the concert was great. LBO have it seems been in the studio a lot of late creating a second album which will be due out later this year and it will be a little different from the first but nothing to detract affictionados from buying it. The album production is being funded by a system of pledges for either buying the album, even singing on the album, or more realistically wathcing the band in the studio. It must be working as 74% of the money has already been pledged.  To learn more try here

Lets be brief and summarise, great concert, two hours went quick, great guitar work from Sheldon Conrich ( who co-writes and vocals on a few songs), the new music is superb. My only complaints? Minor ones, that a few of my favourite tracks did not get played including SlideShow.

Anyway take a look at some photos here. The lighting was miserable ( as it should be of course), so working without flash was nigh on impossible even at high ISO speeds ( dont like going much over 5000, even though the camera goes to 24,000), such that a little post-production magic was needed. So enjoy these and if you search on my blog you will find 2-3 other photographic sets too.
