The Human League played to a packed crowd in Cork last night. Murphy’s sponsored the event as part of their Little Big Nights Out promotion so there was plenty of the black stuff drunk. I still have my voucher if anyone wants it?
The band played most of their hits, mixing in songs I’ve never heard as I’ve never bought any of their albums. Still, it was surreal hearing them sing Don’t you want me and other songs that synonymous with 80’s music!
Yes girls, there’ll be a picture of Phil Oakley in a few days time …

The crowd went mad cheering and shouting when filming of Stanley Super 800’s Gatecrashing video finally stopped.
You wouldn’t believe how many takes a music video takes but they were as vibrant and cheerful at the end as at the start! Amazing!
Image processed through the “Urban Acid” plugin that appeared on the GIMP Users mailing list last week. Nice effect!
This group of lads wandered into the old switching station on Caroline Street during the filming of Stanley Super 800’s video so I took their photo.
Apparently they are a German Deep Purple cover band but it was hard to figure out what their name was because they hardly spoke a word of English and my German is non-existant! They were playing in the Old Oak that night so chances are they’ll be back!
The guy in the back is in the Stanley Super 800 video. Look out for the bouncers, he’s one of them. I can’t remember his name, but I had a great chat with him during the filming.

You wouldn’t believe how mad this lot were!
You can see the video on my my blog.
As well as an outdoor market, the good people of Cork were entertained by musicians in Emmett Place on Patrick’s Day.
A dancer entertained the crowds at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival last September. She was quite popular as you can imagine!

I underexposed on purpose so the silhouettes of the people in the image contrasted with the stage lighting. Shot during a break in performances when most people were outside getting some air!
