Modern Art of the Week
I am sorry this is a little bit blurred…so excited to see it I sort of lost my cool. Have been waiting ages to see this exhibition, as it was so hard to get tickets. The artist Krapy Rubsnif spent ten years building up layers of paper on a tiled background before using a kitchen knife to investigate the layers. I would love to have this in my bijou lounge next to my Jackson Bollox. Sorry I can’t keep this up any longer, I took a photo of a wall in Finsbury Park underground, Victoria Line northbound, where they have taken down the poster and not put a new one up. The reason it is a bit out of focus is the train was about to come in the station so I was a bit short of time. Talking of trains as I do often…I noticed a strange type of light as the newish Victoria line train came into Seven Sisters on my return and realised it had LED lighting at the front which completely changed the ambience in the station from the old headlights we have on the Northern line…check it out!
Drum roll please……..I was only thinking about Sue and there she was with her mate Emily who I am going to adopt (well cook dinner for now and then).
SONG OF THE DAY Robots In Disguise – Chains
I chose the live track on the roof of a pub in Camden Town as your introduction to the ROBOTS just so you can see what groovy live chicks they are. Sue came to our tiny club this week to sing-aling-a-songalong…she has been coming for years -hurrah!. Her and Dee are just putting the finishing touches to their fourth album. Once you have seen them live and you think you like them, ( which I know you will) you can start to explore their back catalogue. I am particular fan of ‘the dj’s got a gun ‘ and don’t copy me’ though I was actually thinking of having my hair cut like Sues as she has always had the coolest hair cuts in the world, and even makes the ‘Maria Von Trapp’ look totally cool.
