In January I was lucky enough to shoot Dom Brown’s band Blue to Brown at the Swindon Arts Centre. As a kid growing up just outside Birmingham in the 80’s Duran Duran were the local boys made good and I was a big fan. The original lead guitarist Andy Taylor left the band for the second time in 2006 to be replaced by Dom. (https://youtu.be/BUN3s-Meh_U) Dom’s bass player is Phil Spalding, he originally played bass with Toyah in the very early 80’s, going on to play with bands such as OMD, Heaven 17, Terence Trent D’arby ,Alison Moyet and Talk Talk in the 80’s, and then Robbie Williams (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iy4mXZN1Zzk,, kylie minogue, Elton John and Seal (https://youtu.be/fpix-X9Kst8) amongst others in the 90’s. Phil organised the event as a charity concert with the proceeds going to the hep c positive charity in Swindon and the Commonweal school restoration fund, who supported Blue to Brown as the Commonweal Collective.
