The Ramsgate Hovercraft – photoshoot with Jason Evans

On Sunday the weather, the tide and the light were good for the Hovercraft to spend the afternoon in the company of renowned photographer Jason Evans who took us out in Pegwell Bay for a photoshoot. It’s a beautiful, tranquil spot (now that there are no actual hovercraft), favoured by Jason for its light, reflections and skies – something that J M W Turner also famously remarked on. It also has the kind of mud that’ll suck the boots right off your feet – unless, like Jason, you choose to go barefoot. Here are a couple of photos of the shoot in progress (thanks Susan Kennedy).





Latest Ramsgate Hovercraft gig at Ramsgate Music Hall

Another amazing night at Ramsgate Music Hall with The Ramsgate Hovercraft AND Acid Mothers Temple on the bill. The Hovercraft’s set included new material played in public for the first time, and was received enthusiastically by the capacity crowd. Acid Mothers Temple wowed the crowd with an hour and a half of the full-on psychedelic rock they’re justly famous for. Afterwards we greeted old friends, made new ones and sold albums. It’s a great venue for bands and audiences.
