The Show: 1966. A good year…

And a happy birthday to The Herb Whisperer. Like Eric Cantona, he too was born in 1966. And much like Cantona’s genius performances on the pitch, Herb’s presence in the Old Trafford stands back in the day helped lay the foundation for Manchester United’s domination of English football throughout the 1990s and early 2000s.

But that’s enough football history. On with the show…

The Show: Bar-b-que courtesy J.R.R. Tolkien Jr, George R.R. Martin

Catching up on 2019. Jeremy Deller‘s ‘Everybody in the Place, An Incomplete History of Britain 1984-1992’ somehow intertwining miners’ strikes, civil disobedience, and warehouse raves. Mind blown.

Also glad to see the return of Rory Ferreira aka R.A.P. Ferreira aka Milo aka Scallops Hotel. We thought he had quit the business but in reviewing 2019 discovered his newish R.A.P. Ferreira persona. Who else could rap about J.R.R. Tolkein and George R.R. Martin running a barbecue??? No one. But that was possibly a rhetorical question.

And on with the show…

The Show: Electric black shadow runs ‘cross the sun…

New release from THE BIG FRESH COLLECTIVE out right now. JET SET GHETTO TECH sees Liam K. Swiggs and DJ Simon Dallow pay tribute to the video game soundtracks of Hideki Naganuma.

And how the heck did Captain Beefheart make it into the show today? I’ve always been a bit scared of his reputation but at a recent talk at the Christchurch Art Gallery legendary photographer Laurence Aberhart mentioned that painter Bill Hammond may have had his wheels spun by Captain Beefheart’s “Run Paint Run Run” which could possibly explain Bill Hammond’s predilection for paint running. And after summoning the courage to listen to said catchy ditty I was hooked.

Here endeth today’s fine art lesson.
