We could write a paragraph at this point, stuffed with hyperbole, superlatives, buzzwords. All glowing praise for Various Cruelties. But if a picture is worth a thousand words, surely that makes the photographer’s words more apt. Carl Byron Batson puts it simply:
Various Cruelties. January at 100 Club. Absolutely packed, sold out gig.
Photographer, published poet, former party animal, body builder, grave robber
to the stars and renowned chainsaw juggler, Carl can often be spotted on his
Harley Davidson pretending to be in Terminator 2. He is also frequently seen in
the press pits of old London town, camera in hand, avoiding being hit by bottles
of wee and crippling his opposition with secret Kung Fu moves.
