Management HQ fax machines were spinning off their reels when they saw this cracker of a photo! Sam clearly took note of their suggestions to ooze class by appearing to have shat his dacks but being fully at ease with his adult decision to do so. It’s difficult enough to achieve, let alone capture on a Kmart waterproof disposable camera, but rogue hydroponics marketeer by day, live music photographer by night, Dave Billabong Chambers was up for the challenge!
Before the gig even kicked off, he and our crack head LA hot rat photographer Skwiddles McGeeznuns were at each other’s lenses for the plum spot of front and centre amidst a steamy crowd of the sound guy and the other band’s girlfriend. Quick on his feet from years of dodging the fuzz at Frankston flea markets, Dave flicked a half sucked durry behind the wheelie bins that sent Skwidds distractedly sloshing amongst the bin juice. After capturing this visual nugget, HQ assured us the PR team were licking their lips with the guaranteed 7 Facebook Likes of pure Rolling Stone publicity pearls. Tour management couldn’t print out the half dozen shandy rider tickets quick enough for us! Red carpet and TVs out windows anytime now, but don’t burn the lucrative eastern Dandenong cover band circuit bridge just yet.
Anyway, can someone let Skwiddles missus know we burnt out her clutch in the Kingswood, but we did return the leaf blower in 3 pieces. She won’t crack the shits if you call her landline at 3am and have Farnsey cranked in the background. There’s a pack of Winnie Blues in it for your troubles.
