Finally it’s here!
This is something John-Paul and Michael, from Dazed and Confused, put together quite some time back.
It talks about the new resistance culture that is slowly starting to make it’s mark on Western politics.
It was interesting seeing all the OWS action going on in the States whilst i was over there. It’s certainly a widespread movement and one that isn’t solely dominated by one age group.
So i highly recommend you check this out.
Bristol-based photographer, Ellen Doherty to exhibit Iconic music shots at London’s West Bank Gallery.
Our somewhat clandestine first encounter took place one cold winter’s morning, in the crack-littered, shadow-enveloped doorway of the Croft; Ellen with a person-sized inflatable banana under arm.
Clandestine because i was in fact being prized with some award for Brsitol’s best live act of 2010 despite not being from Bristol or ever playing there (actually this is a lie. I played twice in 2010).. Ellen was there to take my shot for the magazine, with the intention of somehow persuading me to grasp this monster banana between my frost-bitten fingers.
The magazine was actually the lovely Venue magazine, which almost went under earlier this year but was rescued by determined Bristolites and their West Country peers. Bravo for independent Journalism. Fingers crossed, the publication isn’t secretly owned by the mirror group…
ok, so back to the important part:
Next week, Doherty, accompanied by her old art school lecturer, Keith Baugh, will showcase an interesting collection of photographic images, which capture the reality of live music across four decades. Some of the artists featured include.. Bob Dylan, Flying Lotus, Holy Fuck, Amy Winehouse, PJ Harvey, MF DOOM and somehow a Bristol Anika shot managed to sneak in there too.
The exhibition (Live on Stage: Dylan to Dubstep) debuts at the London West Bank Gallery, 133-137 Westbourne Grove, London W11, with a private view on the 11th August 2011, and then runs for two weeks until the 26th, ending with a closing party and carnival warm-up.”

I’ll Be Your London mixtape:
We’ll be playing Alexandra Palace for the ATP event on 24th July. Buy tickets
Looks like we’ve been demoted to the last line on the poster. Thanks ATP…
AITBF and Fabric, London present… Anika (Live)
Thursday 21st April
So it turns out you WON’T have to travel half the way across Europe to catch an Anika gig this year.
It’s strange to think that this will only be our 3rd official London (and even UK i believe) show - Anika UK dates are certainly few and far between…
It will most probably be our only London show before the Ally Pally date in July, additional festivals pending.
Tickets will be on sale very soon…
