Cringe Photos

Posted Jun 4, 2003
Last Updated Nov 6, 2013

Photographs of Columbus rock band Cringe, including interviews, live concerts, promo shots and practice photos. This is likely one of the largest online collection of Cringe photos, as I worked closely with the band on websites and photo shoots for a couple years.

Cringe was a very popular rock band in the Ohio Valley at the turn of the century. After they broke up in 2003, the members went to other projects like Noise Auction and Philo.

Unfortunately, most of the photos on the site were loaded between 2002-2003. Back then page load times were a concern, so most of the photos were loaded at 200 pixels wide... which is really small by today's standards. I may reload some of the photos over time.

I've thought about doing some current profiles of the members at some point. So bookmark the page.

(i am not sure if shawn has read it yet, but i am sure that you will get the same reaction from him)ialso must tell you that you and the guys have done alot for us too. for example: letting us come out to get a sneak peak at the newest songs, getting us into the shows, and not to mention......GETTING SHAWN DRUNK!!!! all joking aside, good friends are hard to come by these days and i just want you to know that you guys ARE appreciated. thank you....for the kind words, and above all GIVING SHAWN AND I A LIFE OUTSIDE THE HOME!
