Shit and Shine at Shipley for the Golden Cabinet

Posted on Aug 3, 2014

Another great gig organised by Golden Cabinet in Shipley, Shit and Shine pounded out an amazing drum stomping set. It’s always a visual spectacle and a great atmosphere to take photos in. There’s also a Golden Cabinet promo video, it gives a good idea of how damn good the band is.

I picked up this great book whilst on a recent trip to Iceland. Photographer Sigurgeir Sigurjónsson and author Unnur Jökulsdóttir travelled Iceland and documented people from all over the country. The result is the book Icelander. A series of images of ordinary people living their lives within the incredible landscape of the Island.
