DV8 Festival, Day 1

A few photographs from day one (Friday 16th July) of DV8 Festival in York. The Full sets as always can be found at

The first band from Gotham City (AKA Leeds) were a great slice of Traditional Gothic Rock that hung (Upside down) between the early Sisters of Mercy and Rozz Williams' Christian Death/Shadow Project. Deffinately want to see these lot again.

Grooving In Green:
High energy Gothic Rock/Post Punk from former members of Children on Stun and Solemn Novena. Joined on stage at the end of their set by Rosie Lugosi for a fantastic rendition of the March Violets classic 'Grooving in Green'.

This heavy post-punk duo were an excellent lesson in stage presence. Taking up less than a quarter of the total area of The Duchess' stage they stomped and flung themselves at full throttle into every song.

The Eden House:

A coming together of Gothic royalty as members of Fields of The Nephilim, All About Eve, NFD, Sensorium etc. forge an alchemaeical mixture of meandering psychedelic Gothic Rock and Ethereal Shoegaze into an utterly hypnotic signiture sound. I'd love to see this project reach the heights it truely deserves.

Pictures from days 2 and 3 including: Luxery Stranger, Screaming Banshee Aircrew, Inkubus Sukkubus, Wayne Hussey, Flesh Eating Foundation, Zeitgeist Zero, Rhombus, Pretentious Moi?, Goteki, and Gene Loves Jezebel are forthcoming.
