Robin Trower in Bristol, UK

Roland's photos 11 May 2008


Hmm ... best I could do with a borrowed camera and thirty seconds' instruction!

Trower from on high: The gig is taking place on a boat moored in Bristol docks. Read more about SS Thekla here ... the 180 x 30 foot
boat brought to Bristol by the Bonzos' Vivian Stanshall, its hold the womb where many excellent bands have gestated

Trower, Pattison and pedals

Setlist. The late Ben Simmonds was the dedicatee of the sixth number

Highly characteristic Trower pose: fantastic soloing, and a superb vantage point for watching those fingers

 

As above

Strangely enough the sound on this side balcony was impeccable, though not as loud as it was down in the main hold

It was hard to get shots of drummer or bassist

or audience

who received the guitarist and his fine band

with increasing warmth as the set developed

This was the view from front-of-stage; and click here to see an exterior shot of the boat which has been
'visited' by Bristol's most famous contemporary visual artist, the enigmatic, not to say furtive, Banksy
