I'm still reckoning that the Black Lips gig at Liverpool Sound City was my personal highlight but Ipso Facto are defo in second place with a typically late night set at Korova. I'm not exactly a fan of photographing in Korova, it's either red light or flash at very close range and everyone's photos from the place mostly end up looking the same. You're also stuck right between audience and band so a bit of discretion is in order!
I've been on and off listening to Ipso Facto for the last couple of years but it's taken me until now to get around to seeing them and anybody with any sort of style over content preconceptions can leave their views at the door as these girls can seriously play and have the tunes to back up the peformance. Looking at the Ipso Facto My Space page, I presume that there's new tracks about to be uploaded as there's only their amazing cover of You Don't Own Me (which they played at Korova) on there at the moment. So for now, if you want to see and hear more, you'll have to dig around on You Tube.
The portrait was taken at 11pm at night in a car park on Seel Street just before the gig.
