The first location of the Photographers Workshop was in St Mary’s Road, we were there for nearly 30 years. We were moved out by property developers and it stood empty for a number of years but now has another life. On Bonfire Night it is going to host a gig by one of Oxford’s new and well considered bands, Trophy Wife. Part of the Blessing Force Oxford music scene, they are probably only second to Chad Valley as the Oxford band most likely to make it to the big time. So a chance to re-visit the old Workshop and to see a band is a great opportunity, see you there. Here is all the info from their Facebook page

or from Oxfork (39 Magdalen Road, OX4)
ON SALE FROM FRIDAY.
Not content with delighting peoples tastes buds since we opened our permanent base, we just can’t leave our pop-up roots behindd. The underground supper club and former music promoters are now delighting your ears.
Trophy Wife are from our very own Oxford’, splitting off from Oxfork favourites Jonquil a little while back to create what they have described as “ambition less office disco” – which is nonsense!
Their music reflects an abstract and dreamy soundscape with rhythmic harmonies and brooding guitars. ‘The quiet earth’, is less glossier and sharper than ‘Microlite’, and draws a clear resemblance to Foals’ ‘Total Life Forever’, with its distant melancholic elements.
With Oxford friends Foals picking the trio as one of their main support acts on their autumn tour last year. Having released previous singles on Moshi Moshi – their New EP ‘Bruxism” is out October 17th so you’ll soon be hearing that on the Oxfork stereo.
