Why sellotape your DIY red scale re spool back together, when a few drops of superglue will do the job and throw in an extra random angle to boot.
This was my first attempt at re-spooling film to red scale it, I chose some of my vast stock of Sainsburys 400 that expired 5 years ago, to see if I could work it out. Just one problem, no sellotape! so I used Superglue to join it together :D I know that solvent based glues give off all kinds of fumes, so worked fast in the hope the film wouldn’t dissolve into a gooey mess before I could get it to the lab (errr… Asda). Rattling through the frames quick sharp, I was done ‘n’ dusted in no time, and left it with the 16-year old in a luminous green polyester uniform for a dip in the c41. On returning, the child in charge apologized and explained that the machine had gone wrong damaging the film, so no charge. I kept quiet about the superglue and back to front emulsion shenanigans and escaped sharpish.

Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
