I saw Plan B at London’s Mean Fiddler in July 2006, with Example supporting. The place was packed but at the time neither of these guys were well known- Plan B didn’t release his multi-platinum selling ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’ and Example didn’t release ‘Won’t Go Quietly’ til 2010.
At the time, both were promoting their debut records, which sounded completely different to the stuff that made them big in the end, but which I preferred. I know they look like foetuses in these pics – I had a camera which looked amazing but sadly did anything other than take decent pics. But anyway, a couple more pics on my Flickr if you want.
