Break the News to Mother

The year is 1974 and Herbert Bates is coming up the driveway to the house he shares with his mother with this somewhat salacious looking young lady. He met her just this evening. He’d like her to stay. Herbert is 44 years of age. He’s concerned about how he’s going to break the news to mother. She never does take surprises very well…

A couple of versions of ‘Break the News to Mother’ are still available via Play Dead gallery until 16th Feb. They’re A2 and are £130 each if anyone wants to give them a new home.

Love

Hip to be Square

Hip to be Square Hip to be Square

As Huey Lewis once sang in his classic 80’s ditty ‘Hip to be square’:

I used to be a renegade, I used to fool around
But I couldn’t take the punishment and had to settle down

He tells us this before going on to repeatedly remind us how hip it is to be square. He then serenades us with how he likes his bands in business suits, is working out every day and watching what he eats. It would seem like the wheel has gone full revolution since Huey’s paean to conformity in the 80’s because now it seems every other person is either a geek in an ironic t-shirt, a hipster complete with skinny jeans, beards & glasses or a gym bunny or possibly some arcane combination of the three. A musclebound geek with an ironic t-shirt, beard, glasses and skinny jeans with a pop-up fairtrade coffee stall is probably already a thing.

Just in case you need reminding, here is Huey Lewis and the News in all it’s glory:
