Schengen on the remix tip

Distant Noise have just released the remix album as part of their first series of CDs. The artists on the album are all those involved with the label's first series of releases that began at the start of the year. We were asked to remix Yellow 6's 'Kulturhuset' track.

This album along with a few remaining copies of the album we did earlier in the year for the label are available here

POW Open Day Sunday December 7th

Managed to get to the POW open day on the quieter day of the two that it was on. Had a great time chilling out and seeing inside the POW offices. Lots of arty tempations and saw pieces that you could only dream of owning, including an original Banksy canvas of Thomas the Tank Engine getting tagged whilst he sleeps.

Part of the event saw a lottery to win a Banksy print, or given the opportunity to purchase the new one called Very Little Helps. The pic above are my stash of 20 tickets prior to filling them in. Hob and Ace were with me and went for the lottery too. They *both* got lucky and had their names picked out of the hat for the chance to purchase the Banksy print. I, unfortunately, did not. Still, I'd made a £20 donation to Sightsavers, someone's eye sight restored, and had a great time up there.

Sickboy Show, Tramshed, Shoreditch, December 7th 2008

Managed to pop along to the first solo show by Sickboy. The show was domintaed by this large shed/house he'd constructed and which you could win if you had thw lucky golden key. I've had no calls to say I've won it yet, which is probably a relief. Where would you put it??

More pics on my flickr.

Children of the Can Jam

Me and the family went down to the docks to see some of the great and the good from the last 25 years going to town with the spraycans.

Buy this fantastic book from Tangent

Brrrrr chilly!!! Fair play to the artists sticking out it into the afternoon as it was well bitter down there.

MakeMineMusic night, Kilburn Luminaire 22/11/08

I was honoured to attend and DJ at the MakeMineMusic night in Kilburn last week where we launched the new compliation and enjoyed live sets by Piano magic, July Skies and Yellow 6.

Southville Temple

The other day I found this beautiful Sickboy temple which I hadn't seen before, well I can't remember seeing it before. It dates from 2004 and is still in cracking, un-buffed condition.

I was to see it again later in the week, this time in the Children of the Can book where it opens the Sickboy chapter. Nice!!
