cky, island records

i was asked to shoot CKY for Island Records at a show in NYC. for those unfamiliar with the band it stands for Camp Kill Yourself and shares the name with a series of skateboarding videos put out by Bam Margera, brother of Jess Margera, CKY's drummer. CKY's music has been featured on the CKY videos, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, as well as the MTV series "Jackass" and "Viva La Bam".

the venue was small and packed with kids obsessed with the band. the place went off from the first note. only one song in and a kid stagedove on my head ripping my flash off its socket. using a chord and a lot of gaffer tape i was able to get it working and continued to shoot the mayhem. the show ended with fireworks off of this guitar. definitely a fire hazard...
