The Doublecross / Hot Mass / Pipedream / Clwb Ifor Bach / Cardiff / November 11th 2016

Sooo, the last year has been especially difficult and a reflective time for me. I’ve been procrastinating, amongst other things, thinking of how to write about it, but I’m at a loss. Without going in to too much detail, it’s been rough and I’m starting to wake up (kinda) and get involved in all the good things that are happening again.

In my mental hibernation I’ve been trawling through photos and I wanted to include one of the last gigs I attended in 2016, give it the attention it deserves.

I went to a packed launch show for the latest release ‘Keep Bleeding’ from The Doublecross, presented by Fuelled By Jealous LoversSTHC Cardiff & DIY Cardiff. It was good feelings all around with support from Hot Mass, and Pipedream.

It was heartwarming to see such support for a friend who has contributed greatly over all these years to the Punk community and our community here in Cardiff. Jon shines through his work and it is reflected around the room on faces old and new.

Massive props on the awesome music video ‘Fireworks and Butterflies’ by Fuzz Chucas.

I don’t really do live shots but it was a special occasion. Fuck it. Why not?
