The majority of these shots were taken at the Duchess Of York pub at 71 Vicar Lane, Leeds. At it's peak, legendary, long-time music promoter John F. Keenan had bands playing 7 nights a week and The Duchess saw many globally known acts cut their teeth there: Nirvana, Oasis, Pulp, Manic Street Preachers, Radiohead, Coldplay, Green Day and Muse to name a few. John gave over regular nights to Flame In Hand, a non-profit making collective of music lovers from the Woodhouse squatting community who put on many of the bands pictured here. Like many small music venues it struggled through the club-dominated times of the late 90's finally closing it's doors on March 26th, 2000 with a riotous gig by Chumbawamba. Sadly, it's now a Hugo Boss store although a campaign was launched to recognise it's contribution to the North's music scene with an English Heritage blue plaque. RIP The Duchess.

All images shot on either Ilford HP5 or FP4 film using a Pentax ME Super and 28mm lens.
