INSIDE INFO: 010: Our photographers give you the inside information behind the shoot. RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS CONTACT SHEET, BY PHIL NICHOLLS.

Back in the days of film photography, a photographer might print a filmstrip of negatives to create an easy way to study a run of images when they appeared as negatives (this would produce a ‘contact sheet’). Phil spoke about this in the blog piece published yesterday (009). So, today we can show you exactly what he meant. More from Phil, below.

<<Red Hot Chili Peppers, London, 22 February 1988; this is a straight-crop from the second contact sheet of images taken that night. And, as mentioned in my previous post you can see what I meant about the literally, electrically-charged-Chilis! I still do not quite know how all this happened, yes, I set it up, but.... There was definitely mega-energy from the band. These frames show the black-painted wall in the dressing room at The Clarendon Ballroom, complete with patches of gaffer tape.

I don't recall any of the surroundings, but in these pics, it looks like there are some cans of beer on a table to one side..... I wish I'd stepped back and shot the whole space. How often do I look back and think that?! @hownicetoonice there you go!
