Loitered Lens: Augustines

Photos from Augustines last ever London gig at the Kentish Town Forum, October 2016

In long peacoat and cap, Bill McCarthy looked as though he’d been riffling through Ray Davies’ wardrobe.

It was a look that suited him well and one that reminded us that the very last of Augustines’ autumn leaves were falling and the throat of winter was upon us.

Tonight’s set of twenty plus songs would be an epic end to this epic band and proceedings kicked off with the hauntingly beautiful The Avenue. I looked around to see a mesmerized audience with broad smiles and teary eyes.

– The final Augustines gig in London brings a teary eye to Trebuchet’s hardened rock reporter.
