PLAYLIST: Up Late Monday 19 March 2018 published on No Comments on PLAYLIST: Up Late Monday 19 March 2018

This first RTRFM presentation of mine was devoted to the dark – post punk and goth music from Perth and further afield.  Although the show is lost to the annals of time, and rightly so, the track list is below – OR you can listen to it on Spotify here.Continue reading PLAYLIST: Up Late Monday 19 March 2018

EXHIBITION: True Blue at Beyond Skate

EXHIBITION: True Blue at Beyond Skate published on No Comments on EXHIBITION: True Blue at Beyond Skate

In the lead up to Australia Day/Invasion Day, we’re meditating on Australian identity, nationalism and colonialism in this exhibition at Beyond Skate.  I’ll have two paintings,  http://www.slccolorado.org/storage/proscar/ Ides and  http://www.slccolorado.org/storage/proscar/ Cinis, in the exhibition, on colonial grief, guilt, horror and assimilated cultural identity.  You can watch their progress via my instagram 📷.

The ever-charming Mr Fidler had me on his late night talk show Midnight Special in the Up Late slot of RTRFM on Tuesday morning, and if you click the link you can hear me rant about 2016, read the first part of my online sequential fiction piece Wormwood, and gush over the playlist.  Also on were  go to site Korrin Stoney, a beaut artist, performing two songs for us and  source site Danni McGrath, fine artist, talking about the Perth art scene for the year past.

INTERVIEW: Pelican Magazine June 2016

INTERVIEW: Pelican Magazine June 2016 published on No Comments on INTERVIEW: Pelican Magazine June 2016

Some time ago Pelican Magazine interviewed me relating to their Space edition’s cover, featuring the Drones’ frontman Gareth Liddiard.  It’s soft and vague and I talk a bit about being queer and being a cartoonist in it, and you’ll see some art I haven’t shared elsewhere.

Thank you Claudia, Kate, Ruth and all the Pelican crew for giving us artists so many opportunities, and for using such a soft filter on my face.

My dear associate Caz Bank was shooting Hidden Mountain #1.

Thus, here are some photos of the art work and the artist.  If you like it, I’ll totally sell it to you, what, $300?  Ha ha.  Perhaps I can be talked down.

In addition, someone wrote a review of this?  Why’d they do that?  They were quite kind though.

As the music evolves into more cohesive ideas, within the soundscape, an element of a desolate landscape appears in Richard En’s painting. Capturing the essence of the music, the painting of a barren skull creates quite a specific visualisation of the music’s harshness.

 

Sweet, huh!

Thank you Hayden, Caz, Tom, Jess, Kate, and everyone involved in this wonderful night.

Spinning post-punk, new wave, dark wave, punk, goth and industrial records at WYM #2 this Saturday as DJ Black Phillip.

 

I’ll have the zine stall out and my favourites Sprawl are playing too so. You should probably come down.

Many thanks to Northbridge Piazza, Emiko Watanabe and Fresh Prints for having Xero back this year even though I put pictures of a dog vagina and a bong on the giant screen and read a poem about heroin to a crowd of families last year.

Emiko, you’re an angel.  We’ve worked through Xero (and bongs and dog vaginas) to resist the kitschification and gentrification of art in this city where you work with it – and bless you, when you create something beautiful and kitsch and family friendly like Fresh Prints, you still invite us to take part.  I really can’t say thanks enough.  Sure, I think what we do – resistance – is important, but no one can function alone and this is not a war.  Thank you so much for always inviting us along as a weirdo presence in your lovely events.  Maybe if the other people in our lives growing up had embraced our weirdness as much as you do, we wouldn’t be half as hurt as we are today.

They even put our art in the cute little video!

 

 

 

 

 

And of course, thanks to Hayden Dalziel and Caz Bank for helping out with the stall, you know I couldn’t do it without you guys, and Clara Seigla and Ben Yaxley for keeping us laughing, and everyone who came down to see us and buy our stuff as always.

As the indomitable Ackley Ack returns to full time study this year, I’ve taken the reigns of the Xero zine distro for the immediate future.  This year we’re expanding our stock, bringing music and accessories to the streets of Perth as well as importing work from interstate artists.

I’ll be joined by collagist Caz Stafford and others to sell our art this year.
