  • Ian Tilton (Photographer / visual music historian) Thursday, 5th December 2013 (Outlaws Yacht Club, Leeds)

    Nothing to do with me but well worth (once again) highlighting given the person in conversation with Chris...

    In Conversation with: Ian Tilton (Photographer / visual music historian)

    When: Thursday, 5th December 2013

    Where: Outlaws Yacht Club, 38 New York St, Leeds

    The big-up:
    We are delighted to welcome Ian Tilton to the Chinwag settee.

    OK, you might not immediately know Ian’s name but you will most certainly know his iconic and stunning photographic images. Ian has been taking photos of bands for over 30 years and his acclaimed work includes The Smiths, Stones Roses, Guns N’ Roses, Oasis and the moving image of Kurt Cobain, recently hailed by Q Magazine as one of the best rock photographs of all time.

    Ian comprehensively documented the Hacienda, the rise of the ‘Madchester’ scene and had a close relationship with The Stone Roses. He knew the band before they were famous and shot every key moment during the band’s meteoric rise to fame in the late Eighties, capturing more iconic images of the band than any other photographer. He photographed their first TV appearance, the three famous early gigs at Blackpool Tower, Glasgow Green and Spike Island, and his photos appeared on their classic first album. He was the first photographer to do a Jackson Pollock shoot with the band, and is also the man who first got Ian Brown to pull his famous monkey face. His new book ‘Set in Stone’, co-authored with Claire Cauldwell, documents the Roses through an incredible period of socio-cultural and musical history.

    He has exhibited widely and his commissions include Sounds, Select, Melody Maker, Mojo, Q and many record companies and bands. He is an acclaimed theatre photographer and also works in the fields of disability and mental health as a qualified counsellor.

    Ian’s story is utterly unique and quite amazing, so I'm truly delighted to be inviting him for a Chinwag as part of the opening of his photographic exhibition at Outlaws Yacht Club, which runs throughout December. Ian and Claire will be signing copies of their incredible new book ‘Set in Stone’ and will be playing some music as part of an evening of chat, insights, stories, creativity and music. Join us for what will be be yet another lovely evening of inspirational chinwagging.

    Hosted by therapist Chris Madden, Chinwag invites you to lean in and listen to a conversation about life, creativity and anything else that comes up. Unlike a Q&A, this is an opportunity to get to know someone a bit better, hear a few of their tales, find out what makes them tick, share some insights and ask a few questions too.

    Held at the intimate Outlaws Yacht Club in Leeds, Chinwag is a unique chance to explore the lives and minds of our inspiring guests.

    Recent Chinwags have included sell out nights with Andrew Weatherall, Creation Records head-honcho Alan McGee, celebrated artist Pete Fowler, best-selling author Bill Brewster, multi-million unit shifting rock band Spacehog, the pioneering DJ EASE aka Nightmares on Wax and legendary writer/DJ Kris Needs.

    As with our previous nights, this is a unique, special and intimate event, with very limited capacity. This is a FREE event and is first come-first served entry so please arrive early….once Outlaws is full the doors will close. Arrive early, grab a good table, have your tea, share a few drinks with mates and enjoy an evening of chat.

    Bias on the sample image as I was at this one ;-)
