A few months ago I did a photoshoot with my friends Marta and Chris. We all thought it would be a cool idea to take some ginger photos. That was also the time when I lived nearby Camden Town, so I was really into the idea of to try doing some band photoshoot. Especially that a few days earlier Marta posted a snap on her instagram account that showed how this idea would work out brilliantly.
You are already familiar with Marta and her blog riennahera.com as she posed to my photos many times. Chris on the other hand is a real rockman, he plays in two bands “Dirty Notes” and “The Last Bugles“. He’s currently working on studio material which is going to be released next year.
The photoshoot worked out brilliantly and I am very pleased with the results. However, it had no other purpose than just experimentation to try new forms of portraiture. Now, I can honestly say, I can do band pics. So if any of you, my dear readers, is a musician in the need of good photography, don’t hesitate to give me a shout.
Out of boredom, I thought it would be funny to come up the name for the band and entire playlist for their indie rock debut album. They prefer to call themselves “The Gingers” but perhaps it would be more appropriate to call themselves “Pie & Mash” as one of the photos could already serve them as an album cover.
The Gingers – It Wasn’t Cool When They Laughed At School
Side A – Brother From Another Mother
- My Sister Told Me
- Don’t Go To The Hairdressers
- Everybody Knows The Ginger Beard Is Weird
- Mama Tell Her To Leave My Shirts Alone
Side B – Sister From Another Mister
- My Boyfriend Is Allright
- Wave Your Hair When The Sun’s On Fire
- Sister From Another Mister
- Going Home
As a punchline to my irony, you have to admit, that you could totally be able to find an album like that in the Urban Outfitters vinyl section.
The entire band photoshoot and album playlist is a work of fiction but if you pester Marta and Chris enough, who knows maybe they will actually come up with a song.
