South Bank Vintage

Having picked up the Best New Festival award for 2010, Vintage moves from Goodwood to the South Bank in London this year (the weekend of July 29/30/31). Once again I’ll be working with Jack Hemingway on The Warehouse arena, which was the subject of a jubilant blog following the inaugural event back in August:

Cover Versions Of Covers

This is Pauline Amos’s re-interpretation of the Wings album sleeve for ‘Band On The Run’ (1973) and Kid Acne’s take on ‘Let It Bleed’ by The Rolling Stones (1969). They’re both part of the ‘Cover Versions’ exhibition that opens at the A Month of Sundays Gallery in Sheffield this Friday (10.09.10). Pauline’s contribution was also filmed as a performance painting, intercut with footage of the personalities on the original cover – James Coburn, John Conteh, Clement Freud, Denny Laine, Christopher Lee, Kenny Lynch, Linda McCartney, Paul McCartney and Michael Parkinson:

Werewolf Girls

Got to know Kid Acne in 2008 when we we’re both part of the Invisible Players line-up that featured in the Rizla Arena at the Bestival, Big Chill and Rockness festivals. These are some of his well wicked Werewolf Girls cut out and stuck onto burnt spray cans.
