Shaun Ryder

 Shaun Ryder, Black Grape Video

Burnley - 21/9/1997


I’d been sent by his managment to do the stills for Shaun’s new band, Black Grape in Burnley. His dad had to stand in, as Shaun was late. Six hours overdue, he arrived with his ’skull-head’ mates from Manchester coked out of his mind. He put his white wig on, sat in the dentist’s chair and sat back to receive the attentions of half naked painted girls. It was a LONG days’ work, but there were some great colourful shots, including a pig’s head with a spliff in it’s mouth.
