This is James Buxton. Drummer for an indie band called The Brightlights. This band are one of my favourite bands and i've been lucky enough to work closely with them over the past few weeks and not only see them up close live (see above photo); but i've also been working with them during rehearsals and out on location taking promo shots for them too.
I have now been asked if i'll tour with them in 2007 to document their year. I'm lucky in that my editor is a huge fan of the band, and when my schedule allows i'll be able to travel with them. This could culminate in my first book... We'll see.
Spent today in town with Jade (my girlfriend) doing a few little jobs for people and ourselves. Had a lovely white chocolate moccha in Starbucks accompanied by a turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwich. It was planet perfecto to the taste buds!
I'm thinking I may pop down to a music venue tonight to check out a band called Zapped by a Million Volts. If they're good enough they'll get a review, and of course, i'll be taking some pics also.
