Koffin Kats @Backstage Bar and Billiards, Las Vegas

Detroit psychobilly invaded The Backstage Bar and Billiards in Las Vegas. Koffin Kats hit the stage with an explosion of psycho fury. 

It’d been a while since I had caught these guys live (15 years to be exact) but they have not lost an ounce of energy. The music alone would’ve been enough to get the crowd in an uproar but add to it the stage presence and enthusiasm of the Kats draws you even further in. 

The Kats themselves looked to be having just as much fun as the crowd watching them. This made for one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. It’s hard not to have fun watching a band have so much fun on stage. 

You won’t regret adding these guys to your list of “must see” shows. Have some fun and inject yourself with the Motor-City madness that is the Koffin Kats.


Stoned Spider Studios

Having written for Kerrang! magazine since 1989, I started shooting for them, pretty much by accident, in the early 90’s when all their photographers refused to go on tour with my favourite punk band Poison Idea. With pretensions of being as good as Mark Leialoha and taller than Ross Halfin, I shot everyone from Ozzy Osbourne, Slayer and Slipknot to The Prodigy and was published all around the world (full-ish list in the ‘published in’ section) before stumbling into fetish and pin up photography in 2006 when I married Masuimi Max. I quit Kerrang! in 2008 and now shoot the rock stuff for Metal Hammer and Terrorizer.
