DC Recordings Party – Friday 13th November


This Friday there’s a very special DC Recordings party at Corsica Studios in Elephant & Castle. Apart from the line-up being top-notch, it may well be the last ever party hosted by DC – which has got to be worth celebrating in itself!
We’ll be there to say goodbye and good-riddance to our DC pals Tom and Mr. Dyer (UK Acid House Pioneer). See you at the bar…

Cosmic Cruise – Nov 2009


We’ve just finished designing this little flyer for our boys in Paris Versatile Records. Sounds good to me.

Pump House Gallery – Indian Summer Party

Summer Party Invite

A little soiree occurring tomorrow night, featuring a special reading by Steve Strange of Anna & The Witch’s Bottle, the book we’ve designed with our pals Geoff Cox and Rohan Daniel Eason. Lots of other fun stuff happening on the night including a Terrier Derby and a Mini-Gin Palace hosted by Sacred Gin. See you there!

Corsica Studios – Sept 5th

Our friends Kelpe and The Oscillation are playing live at this new event taking place at Corsica Studios in London on September 5th. Looks like there’s also a lot of other fun stuff happening on the night so should be worth a peek. I’ve seen Kelpe play there before and it was very, very good. +Nice poster by our mate Tom!

Zurich Love Parade

On Saturday I spent a wet, but fun day at the Zurich love parade. A very strange day for me that started by getting propositioned by a group of swingers in a Thai Restaurant and ended with me wearing a pink wig dancing to Paul Van Dyk. Can’t wait for next year!

Squirrelvision – opening night

A big thank you to everyone who dropped in to our exhibition opening last night. It was a cold evening and the entire Paris transport system was on strike, so we really appreciated that so many people still made the effort to come. Thanks again to BKRW, G-Shock and The Lazy Dog Gallery for making it all happen! The show is now open until the 21st February (an extra week ‘by popular demand’!), so please pass by if you’re in the area.

The Lazy Dog Gallery: 2 passage Thiere – 75011 Paris – France. T: +33(0)1 58309476

There are more nice words and pictures on the show at the following sites:

BKRW / M&W Shift / Guillotine / SlamXHype

+ A special thank you to the Simian Mobile Disco lookalikes, Benjamin & Fred – you made my night!

Squirrelvision – The Art of La Boca

We’re very pleased to announce our first solo exhibition at The Lazy Dog Gallery in Paris, in association with our friends at BKRW and G-Shock. The show opens on the 29th January and runs through until the 14th February. We’ll have a lot of new pieces on show including artwork for DC Recordings, Versatile Records, Simian Mobile Disco, Nightmares On Wax, Sixpack, LoDown and WAD amongst others!

If you’re in Paris next Thursday please pop in to say hello at the opening event from 6pm-9pm.

+ To celebrate the launch of the show, we’re giving away a free download of ‘Labocatocs’ by The Emperor Machine courtesy of DC Recordings. We were very honoured to feature in the track title and it’s a pleasure to be able to offer the track for free during our exhibition (The only catch is you need to sign up to our unobtrusive newsletter here!).

The Oscillation screenprint

I just received this lovey screenprint designed by Joey. The poster was made for to coincide with the DC Recordings party in Paris last weekend, and it’s turned out rather nicely I think. I believe he has a few left for sale at his website if you’re interested.

DC Party – Paris – 17/01/2009

It’s time to disgrace the dancefloors of Paris once again. We will be at La Fleche d’Or tomorrow night for a big DC Recordings extravaganza! The Emperor Machine, The Oscillation and new boys Higamos Hogamos all perform live, whilst Cosmo Vitelli, Depth Charge, Padded Cell and UK Acid House pioneer, James Dyer will all be on the decks.

See you in the conservatory.

Jason Tozer – Close

“Close is an exhibition of photographs that show us a world our eyes cannot see.”

I attended the opening of the new Jason Tozer exhibition at The Print Space last night. There are some very nice examples of macro photography in the show, my favourites being the close-ups of soldering iron. It’s now open until 10th Feb, and is worth popping in to if you’re in the area.

There’s an insightful article on the Creative Review blog outlining how Jason creates his images.

The Emperor Machine – Moscow

Here’s a new video of our friend (and hero) The Emperor Machine filmed during a recent trip to Moscow. Very chuffed to see him wearing one of our T’shirts too! Apologies for the completely shameless plug – but I believe there are still a few of these available from Sixpack (DC Recordings sold out already!).

Can’t wait for the new album!

Australia premiere

Last night I went to the UK premiere of the new Baz Luhrmann film Australia at the Odeon in Leicester Square. Not usually my type of movie – and one you definitely can’t analyse too deeply – but I enjoyed it. It’s a very easy film to criticise and there are certainly flaws, but it’s a Hollywood epic so you can’t expect too much. It’s fun for all the family, and certainly better than most of the reviews would have you believe.

And I got to have another look at the lovely Compton Organ before the film began.
