David Blandy at Seventeen

I've just returned from a short trip to London where I saw another great exhibition at Seventeen Gallery, this time by David Blandy. I've seen a few pieces by Blandy at the Baltic and Workplace Gallery in Gateshead before and really like his work. The concept behind this exhibition is very interesting and really worth visiting if you're in London.

More information about the show can be found here.

I had a very nice time in Leeds on Saturday. Good company and excellent music. Brave Timbers set was really lush and I even got some nice compliments for the visuals. I hope to do more work with them in the near future.

I was excited to discover that the venue was the same room where That Fucking Tank recorded "A Docment of the First Set." Sad nerd fact, but it made me smile.

I also picked up the Drum Eyes album Gira Gira, from Jumbo Records. It's the new project from DJ Scotchegg and the drummer from the Boredoms. Definitely worth a listen.

I have been working on visuals for Sarah Kemp's (Lanterns on the Lake) new solo project, Brave Timbers. We are playing together in Leeds on Saturday 4th September, at the Cardigan Arms, 364 Kirkstall Road.

She has an album coming out soon on Second Language, and has contributed a track to there recent compilation Music and Migration, which also features Peter Broderick, Xela, Fieldhead and many more. The label puts a lot of effort into their packaging for the records and the results are really lush.

You can here some examples of her music on her Myspace and Blog

Public Opinion

I'm not convinced that this is actually the case, I wish articles like this would also state the benefits of the arts has and the long term impact cuts like this and more private money will have on the public.
