ORGAN PREVIEW: Extra Life hit London’s Cafe Oto on Monday, this is exciting! The U.S band just shared this live footage from their current European tour…

Ahead of Monday’s London gig; “Great video of us playing “Coming Apart”, “We Are Not the Same”, and “Head Shrinker” at The Black Lab in Lille FR, the other night. Thanks to Ah bon? Productions / Cerbère Coryphée / Mohamed Dali for capturing it so beautifully”. So said an Extra Life via social media.. Footage…

ORGAN THING: Caitlin Keogh at East London’s The Approach. Bold paintings, images from all over the place, very much for now though, a narrative for now and another recommended art exhibition to go check out…

Caitlin Keogh, Running Doggerel at The Approach, East London – Back to the Approach, as fashionably aloof as they might be up there, I do like the Approach, dubious stairs and everything else. There’s been some really good shows in their East London space over the last couple of years, never predictable, almost always rather…

ORGAN: Frieze week, Gina Birch at Whitechapel’s Gallery 46. There’s a feeling here that she’s experimenting, discovering, not so much finding her painterly voice but feeling she can start to visually shout…

Gina Birch, In My Fucking Room at Gallery 46 – It really isn’t important that Gina Birch has such an influential musical history, that her and her band are such an important cog in (post) punk’s colourful history. Her band, The Raincoats, were (and still are) one of the most significant of bands, obviously it…

ORGAN: Frieze, day one, did it impress? Was it enough? Was Jeffrey Gibson or those big bold Jadé Fadojutimi paintings or Selome Muleta’s pieces enough? And what about that elephant again…

Frieze London, Day one, October 12th, 2022 – Now and again you find yourself asking why? Why I we here? Why am I writing this? Why has that gallery from Shanghai gone to all the effort,of bringing that rather boring, rather conventional still life that wouldn’t stand out in a village fête art show all…

ORGAN: Five Recommended Art Things – Gina Birch at Gallery 46, Jim Threapleton at No.20 Arts, Georgie Stewart in her van, Lee Maelzer at D Contemporary, Özgür Kar, Universal Everything, Peter Kennard and…

I guess Frieze Week is in full swing now, well no, like I said last time, I don’t guess, I know. I guess it is mostly about the big establishment galleries this week? Is there much going on by way of a real alternative? Much happening in the undergrowth or has the financial situation and…

ORGAN THING: Flipper are coming to London with The Shits, Predeceased and Crushed By Pimps, there’s UK dates and a European tour. Meanwhile, a Generic electric painting alongside Yes, Roxy, The Pop Group, Circle Jerks and…

Well now, when I painted that interpretation of the Flipper cover a couple of days ago I had no idea that the remaining members of Flipper were actually on their way over for a show or two. A whole European tour actually including a London date (overseas over in the South) at the New Cross…

ORGAN THING: Six days to go, the Art Car Boot Fair is back as a real life event, this Saturday, here in London, Kings Cross, back for all the fun of the fair, back for a 19th slightly anarchic year, a unique artist run thing done the right way…

Six days to go now, the Art Car Boot Fair is back in terms of a real life event, it all happens this coming Saturday, here in London, at Kings Cross, back for all the fun of the fair for a 19th slightly anarchic year, an artist run thing done the right way. Here’s a…
