The sun is shining on the recently revamped Kelvingrove Bandstand, and look who’s playing – my favourite new band, Medicine Men.
A fortunate turn of events meant I happened to be in Glasgow when I hear about the band playing a wee community festival in the west end. I’ve been to the bandstand once before and it’s a fantastic redevelopment, modernised but with the old Victorian fixtures still in place.
So into the camera goes a roll of Kodak Ultra colour film. It was an old roll the shop was selling off at a discount, and I’m a sucker for cheap film.
The little festival was free to get in, and very family-friendly. This meant it was quite tough to make sure it didn’t look like the band were playing to a creche. I’m sure the mums were quite pleased they didn’t shout “lets f*cking rock!!”. I would have laughed.
For some fans though, it was a little loud.
