The Inner Circle

Graham Gavin's Glasgow in the 90s

The latest independent publication from Chris Brickley, The Inner Circle is an introduction to

the work of talented photographer Graham Gavin.

This joyous selection of images reveals tight-knit and interlinked circles of young creatives in the distant Glasgow of

the 1990s. A world of dole queue courses and signing-on, dog-eared flats and elegant terraces. A world of

bands and line-ups and pulsating, energised music venues. Artists, photographers, DJs, industry fixers.

A world of cafes, alleyways and parks. Of subway and markets, of posing and watching.

A way of ‘being’ that we’ll all recognise, and wish for a moment that we’d been there. Perhaps you were.

The photographs in this book are fresh, natural, life-affirming, warm. Everything that’s best in the city.

With a poignant introduction by Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), and written

contributions from John McKeown, Alan Dimmick, Jane Egypt, Marc Baines, Sci-Fi Steven and P6.

Featured artists include Lungleg, Yummy Fur, Bis, Dog Faced Hermans, Dawson and more,

as well as PJ Harvey, Bikini Kill and Stereolab.
