Anyone who knows me well knows that I used to be a bit of an emo kid, who's have thought it...? Here's the proof. So one of my favourite bands of all time is Funeral For A Friend, they were pretty much the only band I listened to while I was at London Met. I always get pretty nervous when a band I love bring out a new album in case I don't like it, anyone else get that feeling? But the deluxe edition (yes I bought the fancy one because I am a geek) of Welcome Home Armageddon is just plain beautiful, both to listen to and to look at with illustrations by Rianne Rowlands who is a total genius! Lets face it, it's just really, bloody cool.
Please excuse the crappy iPhone picture.
Right, I'm done gushing over the band, what I actually wanted to blog about was that after remembering how much I love Funeral For A Friend, google also told me that the lead singer is a photographer, could Matthew Davies-Kreye be any fucking cooler? Wait, he is, he also self publishes his work in the form of a little zine called HATEFACE (get a copy here).
Here's a few of my favourites from his blog:
