Sebastien Grainger

The Lexington, London
February 11, 2009

Formerly one half of mega dance-punk duo Death From Above 1979, Sebastian Grangier goes it solo with Sebastien Grainger and The Mountains (wait a minute…). Playing a series of 6 dates in London this February to debut his solo effort which promises to be an old school ROCK ALBUM (and seems to deliver on this promise), Seb demonstrates exactly why DFA1979 disbanded.

Seb is a natural talent. He performs with raw energy and the ease of an old pro. This voice is full of POWER and seductiveness. His riffs are killer. He is destined for great things as a solo artist and for this we can almost forgive him for disbanding our favorite dance-punk duo. Rock on SEB!

And in addition to the review of Seb G at The Lexington, Loose Lips correspondent Neil decided to review this camera he was trying out for the first time while taking the following pics of Sebastien:

Review of the Ricoh R10

by Neil Bennett

Ricoh’s new R10 camera boasts a 10-megapixel sensor, a 7.1x zoom lens and a hi-res LCD screen – all for just £180. However, as a gig camera it’s let down by taking shit pictures. I mean really shit. Unusably shit. It might be good in daylight, but in the usual dank light of an indie gig, pictures come out more noise laid over the top than a Fuck Buttons song.

It’s also let down by the photographer not noticing it was in macro mode for half of the gig – though we’re blaming Sailor Jerry rum for this, rather than the camera. To sum up, buy a Nikon P6000 instead.
