Through the lens of Lou Smith.

Welcome to Lou Smith Media Site

I am lucky to be living in South London at a time when it is teeming with emergent musical talent. I am never happier, than when visiting one of the dwindling number of 'proper' music venues in London, particularly round Brixton and Peckham where such places still exist, and witnessing nights of incredible songwriting and musicianship. It feels like a special time, a creative upswell that I feel compelled to record, something I love to do. I have documented the rise of the Fat White Family, from their earliest acoustic sets at Andy Hank Dog's long standing Easycome nights in Peckham, and continue to be thrilled by the world class performers who start out, or experiment, or collaborate there. Venues like The Windmill, Brixton, Queen's Head, Brixton and Bird's Nest, Deptford are daily hosting thriving local talent. I have come to know and love the 'usual suspects' on the scene, musicians, proprietors, photographers, hardcore friends and fans, fucking one-off nutjobs. It feels like family.

Pink Eye Club Single launch, Meatraffle at The Windmill

Sold out, loved up night to celebrate a true outsider artist, Haydn, AKA Pink Eye Club, and the release of his first single on Blang Records, the champion of outsider artists, Same Job For Three Years. Headlining the show are another recent signing to Blang, and another epitome of outsider art, the mighty and invigorated Meatraffle, joined onstage by the beautifully expressive living sculpture that is Ollie Mozley.
