“I tried to document the music and the scene as a ‘fly-on-the-wall’ documentary photographer. You either contribute to the myths/bullshit of rock n roll or you try and show some of the reality of the grind of touring and promotion. I recall being the designer at Craccum in 1976 and being delighted that our music editor John Robson came back from a press conference with a photo of Frank Zappa drinking a cup of tea. How sublimely un-rock n roll!”
bFM's own Murray Cammick has a new show over at Black Asterix Gallery in Ponsonby. AK•75-85 represents Murray's time, first as designer for Craccum then co-publisher of Rip it Up, photographing musicians around Auckland. The very excellent shots cover everyone from mega international cult heroes Bob Marley and Siouxsie Sioux to home-grown rowdies like The Scavengers and Suburban Reptiles. Go treat yourself to the limited edition silver-gelatin prints you know you deserve.
