Last Halloween we went down to Brighton’s ‘Beach of the Dead’ zombie walk to film a video for ‘Survival Guide’. Our good friend Dan-DNA came up with the idea of capturing some footage of us clowning around amidst thousands of zombies, so we got our make up out, made some blood packs, obtained a chainsaw and hoped on the train down to Brighton. We took along the very talented Joe Conner to shoot and direct, and our resident zombie expert Kai Owens. We also had Mike Massaro on hand to catch some extra footage as well as some (more) great photos of the zombified DDF.
Watch out for the video dropping soon…
In 2010 DDF discovered the joy of world zombie day, a wonderful occasion for zombie enthusiasts worldwide. The traditional celebration for this holiday is to take to the streets with hundreds of other zombies and get pissed, and that’s exactly what we did. We took our good friend Mike Massaro along for the ride and he got some great snaps of us in all our undead glory, sexy.
“One man. One thousand biros. No mistakes.”
It’s not just the music that we pour our creativity into, check these pics from our very own NemX. Mainly portraits of friends, drawn using nothing but biro pens, a painstaking eye for detail and nerves of steel. If these tickle your fancy, watch this space, we’ll be putting up more 1000 Biro posts in due course. Or if you would like to get your own portrait done give Nem a shout, at:
People often say to us:
“Hey DefDFires, your photos are so cool, ones where you’re eating cakes and that, and painting your faces. How do you do it?”
And we say:
Mike is a freelance photographer and old school friend of ours (literally), he has been snapping for almost as long as I can remember, is a member of the band formerly known as Mammoth Fortress, and has arranged exhibitions and events for the elusiveLefto collective. After many dedicated years of photographing underground gigs and festivals Mike developed a keen eye for capturing live bands (if you’re performing I strongly recommend you check the ‘music performance’ section of his website – link below), as well as creative promotional shots. He shoots far more than just music, and of late the inevitable has occurred and Mike’s phone has been blowing up with requests for all sorts of jobs. Mike is available for parties, weddings, tea and cakes, warehouse raves, promo shots, road trips and much more…
