Deaf School at the Pentagon Suite

Some time in 1975 I shot just these few pictures of the band at a club just off Bold Street in Liverpool. The band look amazing, full of excitement and the music was great! It looks like it was very smoky in there, and there was condensation on the lens and I met my photographic nemesis in the form of the sum total of the lighting being one huge spot light. It was very dramatic but not conducive to well exposed photographs! Not just that but I was experimenting with ‘pushing’ film, I’d get a 125asa film and rate it at 500asa and modify the processing time to compensate. This produced the huge grain you see with contrast and it enabled me to shoot in very dark places. The downside of this was there was no great exposure latitude in the shots, if they were under exposed there was simply nothing left on the film. Its only my new digital techniques that have brought these pictures back to life.
