10cc - Indigo2 2009

10cc | Indigo2 London I shoot quite often at the venue that is Indigo2, the little gem tucked away inside the o2 arena. A great venue with a top notch sound, it's only hampered by its location and relative unknownness (look! a new word) The acts that come through the place, recently, have been old times with a splash of rap (Tinchy Stryder and Co) but mainly the old timers... Here are a couple of my shots of 10cc.

10cc is an English art rock band who achieved their greatest commercial success in the 1970s. Initially comprising four musicians — Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme — who had written and recorded together for some three years, before assuming the “10cc” name in 1972.

Two strong song-writing teams, a commercial team and an artistic team, injected sharp wit to lyrically-dextrous songs. The commercial team (Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman) were straight pop-song-writers, who created the band’s most accessible songs; the artistic team (Godley and Creme) were the experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility and cinematic writing. Each man was a multi-instrumentalist, singer, writer, and producer, and each could perform as the lead singer.
