I first encountered Fukushima Dolphin on one of my Brighton Street Photography walks back in September. 27th September 2020 to be precise.
I didn’t know who these guys were at first. It was only when I posted a couple of these images on social media that evening that a chorus of friends told me who they were.
It turns out that Fukushima Dolphin are very well known and much loved on the Brighton music scene and for good reason. They are excellent!
As for my ignorance about such matters, I blame my age. I clearly haven’t got my finger of the pulse of the latest music scene like I used to have in the “old days”. Clearly that’s been my loss!
Brighton is wonderful for this kind of thing. The city is brimming with talent and quite often that talent delights us on the streets of Brighton.
Especially during Covid-19 ravaged 2020 when live entertainment venues have been forced to close. That leaves the streets as one of the only places for bands to play to an audience.
Talking about the audience, what a lovely bunch of folk they were! A mixture of fans who had turned up specifically to see Fukushima Dolphin play and passers by who stopped to enjoy the show. It was definitely a (socially distanced) party atmosphere.
That’s why the majority of these images are of the audience rather than the band, it was great to see people enjoying the show!
