A Royal Affair

To mark the occasion of the Royal wedding, myself and 17 other artists were asked to take part in an exhibition where we would display work that reflected our thoughts on the marriage and the monarchy itself.

But first, a word of warning...

my piece, 'Warm Leatherette'.


the opening

Works in Progress

My studio is a total mess at the moment - still trying to make sense of things and create some kind of beauty out of the absolute trash heap of chaos I'm faced with every time I go in there. This is what I'm currently working on.

No New York/Yes New Records

Yesterday I went record shopping at Monorail and picked up these goodies......

Yes, that's right - it's the soundtrack to Sedmikrasky/"Daisies"(!!) as well as Goblin and the No New York compilation featuring Teenage Jesus, Contortions, Mars & DNA.

Ah yeah, it's probably worth adding that I also just got the FX Camera app for my Android and have been enjoying the polaroid and toy camera settings a bit too much...

Strawberry Juice/Orange Switchblade

Edwyn Collins, Jill Bryson from Strawberry Switchblade and Postcard Records founder Alan Horne outside Postcard HQ on West Princes St, Glasgow (around the corner from my flat).


My bandmate Hillary introduced me to this song last night. Early 80s post-punk from Australia, later to become Dead Can Dance. Incredible vocals.

Sedmikravsky (Daisies) 1966.

Crispin Glover

I was lucky enough to see Crispin Glover perform his Big Slideshow at the CCA the other week. He gave us an hour's dramatic narration of a selection of his book works (including Rat-Catching, The Backward Swing, Round My House...) and it was one of the most bizarre hours of my life. Not for a second did I have a clue what he was talking about, and the lack of air circulation in the tiny screening room only added to the strange and discomfiting atmosphere. I had to centre myself by focusing on Crispin with his nice shiny hair and weirdo schoolmaster outfit. No bad thing.

What a babe. If you ever get the chance to go to one of his Big Slideshows or to see him present any of his 'IT?' films, go go go!

Playhouse by Dietrich Wegner

She Had Her Gun All Ready

I went to a screening of No Wave films the other night at the CCA, and this was one of them. Made in 1978 by Vivienne Dick and starring No Wave musicians Lydia Lunch and Pat Place.

John Bulmer

I discovered the work of John Bulmer completely by accident this evening and I'm wondering why I never found out about him earlier.
