Well just a whole load of things that are worth sharing in some way, things that have crossed our path, things like American conceptual artist Dan Graham on why he hates conceptual art
For fifty years, Dan Graham has traced the symbiosis between architectural environments and their inhabitants. With a practice that encompasses curating, writing, performance, installation, video, photography and architecture, his analytical bent first came to attention with Homes for America (1966–67), a sequence of photos of suburban development in New Jersey, accompanied by a text charting the economics of land use and the obsolescence of architecture and further reading
Just poking around really, things passing our way that are worth passing your way, “finally Pleased to announce our new album “Silent Earthling” is out April 1st on Superball Music” say Three Trapped Tigers. “Listen to the title track/opener below. limited edition pre-order bundles and new tour dates (on sale 9am Friday) over at the band’s website, you just passed the link back there, here it is again; www.threetrappedtigers.com
And yes! DEBS 4 MAYOR!! – Seems Cecily (or Debs) wants to run for Mayor of London now, “Ok … if there was ever a time I ask for help its now. Just share the booty off this bad boy. We all know I am outspoken right… not sure if its more me, or my alter ego but I speak for equality. Lets shake things up a bit shall we. Tax evasion? hmm. Housing crisis? really?

Will anyone re-blog it? No need for words from us, here’s the music and the attitude that comes with it…
And we see Nachthexen are playing London on March 12th, part of a rather good looking bill , good looking flyer/poster art as well, the gig is happening at the rather intriguing DIY Space for London (96-108 Ormside Street, London, SE15 1TF), here’s the Facebook event page for the Nachthexen gig at DIY space, and down there underneath the show poster are the links and things for those they’re sharing the bill with. Loads of huggy bears and blood sausages and how good it it to stumble on it revolving around again (and again), excellent. .
