Bang! Bang!


14th Nov 2011
Bang! Bang!, an art party-cum-club-night concieved and curated by artist Trevor Pitt happened last Saturday at Vivid Art Gallery and we were very excited to be a part of it. We both contributed work as solo artists along with fellow artists Joey Vivo and Roseanna Velin.

"Pop Is Dead" by Vincent Gould was a makeshift funeral for pop music, complete with candles, a book of condolence, an urn and an order of service. Viewers were encouraged to light a candle and wear a black poppy to commemorate the death of pop.




"99 Red Balloons" by John Napier

I wanted to bring musical legends down a peg or two and remind us all that they are not divine beings whose work is unnatainable for us mere mortals. With this in mind I wrote some of pop history's most iconic and respected bands on loads of balloons, filled them with helium and slipped a tiny strip of paper inside each one with a specific criticism of that band or artist. At 11:30 I then went around popping each balloon to reveal the secret inside...

Rebel Army gig


2nd Nov 2011
In case you missed this, The Rebel Army will be performing at Superfuzz Bigmuff tomorrow (Thurs 3rd Nov) at Bulls Head, Moseley. £3 on the door.

What they wrote about me:

"The poetic half of WALER goes it alone and does something alarmingly fresh and original, a sort of militant, steel-drum tinged dub-ragga beat, guaranteed to get your bum wiggling whilst managing to keep you cranium stimulated the whole time. Get there nice and early for this very different bigmuff experience!"

Nice.

Benjamin Blower - Babylon is Dead Vol #2


31st Oct 2011

The new EP by Benjamin Blower is now available for free download.

Some three years since Babylon is Dead Volume 1, we finally have the next chapter. There are also another five in the pipeline, we're told.

Oddly, this EP had been completed and shelved some time ago. The current economic apocalypse and the questions raised by the global occupy movement perhaps make it more relevant now than it would've been then anyway.

As with volume 1, it comes hand in hand with some of BB's written thought.

Consider... enjoy... and please pass it on.
