The Common

May I introduce you all to The Common. A lively trio, they are set to release their first EP in the very near future. We have high hopes.

Earlier this week we all made our way to Alexandra Palace in north London to shoot a collection of promo and cover photos.

A great afternoon it was – and really quite productive too. Lovely.

Some of the photos require some work but my computer has caused me a few issues this week. Need some time.

Notting Hill

Well it’s been a while since my last post – regrettably.

Anyway, I am back on.

Each and every year  I mosey on down to Notting Hill carnival with a fine group of friends. It’s great and this year was no exception – and the sky remained blue!

The Book Club and the birthdays

Welcome back to The Book Club; expect no nudity this time.

The following images were taken over the course of two evenings.

Enter.

She enjoyed the camera

The beer was Japanese - and so was she

Shacklewell Studios

You’ll have to forgive my ignorance here.

The name of the band that this post orbits eludes me. I am searching furiously, but to no present avail. This evening was to be their last proper dinner; tour would begin the following morning – as would the KFCs and ‘fizzy pop’.

The entire Shacklewell Studio complex is really quite good. More particularly, the top-floor Diesel Music space is a hidden gem. Whitewashed rafters and pale blue walls shelter the crowd, and a window-side bar provides the entertainment; the dinner table is an aesthetic-pleasing addition.

Daydreaming with…James Lavelle

Working for PR companies certainly has its merits.

The end of August was the beginning of an exhibition hosted at the rather brilliant gallery, Haunch of Venison. ‘Daydreaming with…‘ was the brainchild of UNKLE’s James Lavelle. Far-flung, and exciting, the project called on a number of artisans, learned in a plethora of trades, to synthesize still and moving imagery, and static and active sculpture with music.

Mr Lavelle has most certainly summarised the founding concept of this event far more articulately than I could ever:

“Even though music is the medium I’m attached to, it’s only one element of the arts that inspire me and this is true of all artists in that they take inspiration from other creative forms and channel them back into their own endeavours. Film, paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, scents, all the forms you either see here, have all provided that inspiration for me and this has in turn ultimately impacted heavily on the music UNKLE has created.”

Enter; the exhibition
