Edwin Starr

These photos were taken at a very small gig in in London's West End, in 1983.

There was only a small crowd, but everyone there was waiting to hear him sing "War". The entire crowd joined in to help sing the lyrics "what it is good for?" and it was one of those one in a lifetime opportunities to see a great performer belt out one of the best known anthems.

Nick Cave & The Birthday Party.

Jeremy took these photos of Nick Cave & The Birthday Party in London in 1983. They were enormous at the time in London, but still the anti-Australian feelings in London, of some of the punters at the gig (going home on the Underground), kept him keep his mouth shut to avoid being targetted as an unwelcome Aussie in their midst. The night these shots were taken, Jeremy was mistaken for a member of Duran Duran (which was not an insult!)

A very special wedding!

We have two very dear friends (who did not know one another at the time). It was a long & arduous campaign, but eventually we set them up on a blind date, and now they are long married.

We took their wedding photos - what else do you give as a gift???

The Go Betweens.

This is especially for Debbie - a Go Betweens fan!

Jeremy was asked to do promotional shots for The Go Betweens in 1981. These shots were taken in Bruce Milne's kitchen, in Melbourne. Bruce was the founder of Au Go Go Records.

The shot at the kitchen table has been used many times, in various forms and was one of the bands favourite images.

The Ramones.

The Ramones came to Australia in 1981, and Jeremy was there at La Trobe University, camera at the ready.

Which was lucky, because the late (& truly great) Dee Dee Ramone saw the camera and played it up for all he was worth.

Great stage presence - great music!

Grace Jones Tour Photos

Jeremy had the pleasure of photographing Grace Jones when she toured in Australia in 1981. He caught her concert in Melbourne, and took a series of amazing shots.

This is one of my favourites.
