Blood Drive

Being the social influencers we are we were asked if we would like to take receipt of a goody box for the upcoming show ‘Blood Drive’ and watch the first episode. The box of stuff was particularly well suited as we’ve now managed to get Hugo a new girlfriend. Her name is Brandy. The fluffy dice will seriously accentuate the look of the id-iomobile too and apparently a 1993 study showed there to be no correlation between the use of fuzzy dice and the degree of a driver’s reckless driving behaviour so we should be fine.

To say Blood Drive is something of a Marmite show is probably an understatement. It’s basic premise is a death race in cars powered by blood. There’s sex, violence and all that comes between. It’s like every trashy exploitation b-movie you’ve never seen but enjoyably ridiculous for being so. It’s starting on Syfy channel tonight in the UK.

If you like the trailer then it may be for you:

Urban art exhibition @ Chapel Arts in Cheltenham

Now the Cheltenham Festival may have been and gone but if you live anywhere near the area here’s a hot little tip for you. We’re exhibiting a few pieces alongside other artists such as My dog sighs, Korp, Dice 67 and Zabou at the Urban Arts exhibition at Chapel Arts on Knapp Road in Cheltenham. It’s running from this Friday (25th March) until the 16th April. It’s always good to make it down on opening night if you can – some lovely artwork, a beer or two and if anyone asks you can sound like you’re doing something cultural. It’s in the balance at the moment whether we’ll be able to make it or not but if we do we’ll see you there…

Cheers

Podge & Mcloughlin

Podge & Mcloughlin is my favourite skiing-based 80’s style detective show that never was.  The premise would be simple. Every week Podge & Mcloughlin would somehow get themselves embroiled in some kind of complicated Alpine murder investigation and through a mix of keen detective work and comedic blind luck they’d come through in the last few minutes of the show and solve the seemingly impossible case – much to the chagrin of the lackadaisical local cops. Cue theme music and end credits.

It’s not that often that we get prints done from our digital files but this one with it’s mix of styles demanded the colours pop and the skin tones be lifelike so a professional printer seemed like the best way to go. Anyway, this bad lad is printed up at A3 and will look grand once framed. I just hope the commissionees like my treatment of their holiday picture as much as i do…

What to do tonight? Hmmmm…..

Studio 10 group show - TONIGHT!

If you are in the mood for a free beer, some spanky new art and are in the vicinity of Weston-Super-Mare this evening then you could do a lot worse than heading along to Studio 10 for a quick look at the group show that is opening this evening. You can view work by a whole host of top flight artists (including our fine selves). The show runs for 4 weeks so there’s no excuse not to get yourself down…

Last night… (My Dog Sighs & Roa)

It’s been a while since we’ve gone out to a gallery show and I could hardly resist going to My Dog Sigh’s ‘Can Man’ show at the Pure Evil Gallery so it was time to don my ironic glasses and hit the East End. My Dog Sighs is involved with Free Art Friday and likes nothing better than dropping his cans and other work on the street for people to find – but this time they’re all indoors. There was an edition of 30 of his small cans, various other larger cans and a few canvases. They were all framed nicely, priced well and looked great on the wall. I think my favourite pieces were the bigger catering size cans, the smaller cans with woolly hats on and the can which was wearing a burka. Great stuff all round and we wish him all the very best. The show is on for another 10 days so if you are in the area you should definitely pop in.

After a couple of drinks and a swift chit-chat with My Dog we headed off to Stolenspace for a quick shufty at Roa‘s new show ‘Hypnagogia’ (which, i’ve found out, is the name for the state between being awake and being asleep). Roa’s work is impressive as ever and I like his work on bits of wood/furniture. Although saying that if i had to choose between his street work and his gallery work I’d take the street work every time. If i had a large industrial building he could work on I would invite him over and ask him very nicely if he’d consider doing a huge Manx cat for me…

Come here often?

It’s taken a little while to polish but we’ve finally got a little gem of a video from our last show at Metro in Clapham (many thanks to my homeboy Paul for giving us a huge assist with this). I’m really enjoying trying to figure how to get a good video out of work that we do and I reckon we’ve done a good job here, if i do say so myself. I’d be happy to hear anyone else’s thoughts…

Cheers
