ORGAN: The Opinion Makers, exploring East London artist-curators in Redchurch Street

OPINION MAKERS

OPINION MAKERS

Signs of life in Redchurch street, the East still lives, there is still artist-led adventure to be found in between the designer clothes shops and the food no one who actually lives in the East End can afford. Tuesday afternoon and there’s actually a couple of art exhibitions open (a couple of years ago, this street was alive with galleries and art spaces, then the designed shops moved in and… well, you know the rest).  The Opinion Makers 2 show opened to positive response (and big crowds) on Monday evening. An extremely well curated show in the big Londonewcastle project space (the big building in Redchurch Street with the Ben Eine letters on the side).  Kind of helps that the combination of rooms really does make it difficult to get things wrong in the big space, but this show really has been carefully considered and put together in a rather splendid way; the relationships carefully considered, the colours, the textures, the spaces in between the well placed art. And There is an art to hanging a show, these things don’t just happen, you don’t just turn up with a hammer, bag of nails and a gang of paintings the day before the show opens and expect it all to just fall in space – well no, sometimes that is exactly how it should be, but not for a show like this in space as attention-demanding as this one.  This is a big white space (or set of intriguing big white spaces) and every inch of the hang is crucial – crucially the team behind this show, Iavor Lubomirov and Bella Easton, have got the art and the space just right, feels good in here, the walls and floors are inviting, they call you in to explore…

Juliette Losq


“Many artist-curators, curators and artists began their careers in artist run spaces; initially these spaces were established as an alternative to museums and galleries. In recent years Project Spaces have become part of the established art system and have been incorporated into large-scale exhibitions and biennials.” – Birchall & Mabaso,

opinionmakers29Artists choose art in a particular way, arguably their choices and interests are motivated or coloured by concerns within their own practice. Conversely, when curators or writers are practising and exhibiting artists in their own right, there is a potential opportunity to discover – through the medium of their art – curatorial and critical motives which are either consciously or subconsciously unavailable in an exhibition itself, nor in its supporting materials, such as press releases and articles. The Opinion Makers series of exhibitions is conceived as paired juxtapositions; each pair comprising one work by an artist who curates or writes, together with one work by an artist of their choice. It is a pragmatic attempt to use artists as curators as an explicit tool for understanding curation. It is also a statement about the significantly expanded presence of the artist-led approach in the contemporary art landscape. The Opinion Makers is organised by Iavor Lubomirov and Bella Easton – artists, curators and directors of the ALISN network and the LUBOMIROV-EASTON Project Space. The first Opinion Makers exhibition took place at Enclave Gallery in 2013. The second in this evolving series, presents at Londonewcastle Project Space the work of international, as well as UK artists, curators and critics, to give a glimpse of a rising global trend of artists devolving new organisational, curatorial and critical roles upon themselves.

It would be almost wrong to pick out individual pieces, this is a show that mostly works as one big whole, a show united, but that dark garden shed needs to be quietly sat in for a while and the glow of Juliette Losq‘s expansive tactile growth needs to be enjoyed in person. The show is an inspired mix of painting and installation, of free standing sculpture and refined wall work, beautiful painting, mathematical consideration, the glories of texture, sound, shape, film. Oh look, what you have here is a rather impressive show that has space to breathe, a show that comes with the energy that you tend to only find when artists are leading things themselves.   Opinion Makers is a show well worth your time, a show to experience, some artists you’ll want to explore a little more….. (SW)

The Londonewcastle Project Space is at 28 Redchurch Street, London, E2 7DP. The show is open until Until this Saturday 20th December, 12-5pm daily. Reopens 5th to 11th January.

ORGAN THINGS: Seven Impale dish out some lighthouse keeper flavoured prog, Dalek throw out fresh questions, Sweet Jesus unload some classic DC hardcore….

Tuesday things, same as Monday things or Wednesday things really. A random bag of earfood selected from the things that have come this way today… What do we have today? Sweet Jesus, ex-Have Heart, F**king Invincible, Dropdead and such, have announced their debut album You Destroy Yourself  The album is due out on February 3rd via Atomic Action Records, here’s a taste….

 

 Sweet Jesus came together sometime in 2010, quickly released a well received demo and then followed it up in typical band style with a few years of next to nothing in terms of activity. That all changed in 2014 when the band released their debut 7″, Box, on Triple B Records. “With a new-found momentum the band entered Magpie Cage Recording Studio in August to record their first LP for Atomic Action Records, You Destroy Yourself. Not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves, You Destroy Yourself finds the band exploring deeper into their collective love and admiration of the 80s & 90s DC hardcore sound”.

Meanwhile, “this contemporary Norwegian prog band” have been brought to our attention by Toby Driver, Seven Impale sound like they might have been hanging out near a plague of lighthouse keepers, you just passed a link to their Soundcloud page, here’s a link to their Facebook outpourings, where the six piece tell us that “Seven Impale is the sound of the past and the future. Mixing modern metal rhythmic, often heard from bands like Tool and Meshuggah, and the classic prog rock style of bands like King Crimson and Van der Graaf Generator. Seven Impale are also using elements of jazz in the harmonics and use of improvisation”. See told you, there was something flying as straight as an arrow in there. here’s You Tube….

,

“Seven Impale was started in 2010 by Vocalist and guitarist Stian Økland. Soon Fredrik Mekki Widerøe joined on guitar alongside some former members before he took place behind the the drum set. Soon Tormod Fosso (First only cello and eventually also on bass) and Fredrik’s younger brother Benjamin Mekki Widerøe joined on the saxophone. At the end of the summer of (No, not ’69) 2010 Seven Impale was joined by Håkon Vinje on keys and Erlend Vottvik Olsen on guitar. After a couple of years with experimenting and defining the Seven Impale sound the band was picked up by the norwegian record company Karisma (hosting bands like Airbag, Brimstone and D’accord) after a successful showcase concert”

..

.Seems there’s some new Dalek out as well. Here’s a track called track ‘Police State is Nervous’ from the upcoming film 6 ANGRY WOMEN, something that someone somewhere plans to release in 2015. The video was directed by Sridhar Reddy

The last time we encountered Dalek was back in January 2008, in a pub in Soho, just around the corner from the Borderline. We really need to gather all this old stuff together in one places, years of interviews, featured and things we’ve all forgotten about….

Dalek, borderline, London, 2008 (SW)

Dalek, borderline, London, 2008 (SW)

“It’s a damp shiny Thursday evening in deepest Soho, and we’re in search of a quiet bar to talk to powerfully dark avant hip-hop maker DÄLEK (AKA Will Brooks), before his gig at London’s Borderline. We finally claim an aromatic corner of Garlic and Shotts and put a recorder on the table (thanks once more Garlic and Shotts!) – the place is relatively quiet – still early evening and the usual G&S debauchery hasn’t kicked in yet.  We’re not going to ask any stupid stuff about Dr Who, as the name is – we understand – a play on the word ‘dialect’, and pronounced that way – well actually pronounced ‘Die-a-leck’, as in an alternative hip hop – however we do later remember the tale of how Terry Nation (the man who made up the D word) looked up the meaning of Dalek in a Serbo-Croat dic…. more here

And while we’re here, Cuneiform records are celebrating with a pay what you want sampler album of their 2014 output. Here’s what they have to say….

“Cuneiform – in 2014, its 30th year – features about 400 titles in its catalogue. These releases cover a broad stylistic range, from experimental rock to avant-progressive, avant-jazz and jazz improvisation, electronic/ambient/noise, and much much more. From classical minimalism to chamber rock, Rock in Opposition to Weird Americana, jazz/pop to jazztronica, Cuneiform has explored a wide world of cutting edge music and especially, music beyond genre and genres-yet-to-be-defined. The common denominator of all releases on this uncommon, artist-friendly label is the singularity and consistent high-quality of its artists. Cuneiform’s innovative composers and improvisors create music true to their unique visions and their unfettered visions often defy, reshape, and transcend prior genre boundaries, transforming the musical landscape of jazz, or rock, or New Music/contemporary classical for generations to come.

Cuneiform released 20 albums of high-quality, genre-defiant music in 2014, the largest number of albums we’ve ever released in a single year! They range from jazz/post-jazz/beyond genre (Anthony Pirog; Dylan Ryan/Sand; Raoul Bjorkenheim/Ecstasy; The Microscopic Septet; Led Bib; Ideal Bread; Joel Harrison; The Ed Palermo Big Band; Thumbscrew[Halvorson/Formanek/Fujiwara]); to avant-rock/Rock in Opposition/electroc-ambient-noise (remastered reissues of Roger Trigaux’s Present; Richard Pinhas & Oren Ambarchi; Richard Pinhas & Yoshida Tatsuya; Mats/Morgan; Sonar; Jonathan Badger; Happy Family).

More of this tomorrow, maybe, or maybe more squirt, or, who knows……

 

ORGAN THING: Squirt Doesn’t Hurt but emptying out the in box does. JG Thirlwell coming up at Cafe Oto

Andie Macario

Andie Macario

Monday things for what it may be worth? What’s words worth anyway? That’s a quote from the rasping raw-throated man from Iron Fist and the Hordes From Hell from back before they gentrified the Roundhouse I’ll have you know (I suppose you could say at least they didn’t knock it down, knocked the soul out of it though! Knocking the soul out of everything now, words are worth nothing, hard working families, we’re all in it together, pay attention at the back, stand up straight).

Monday things then, the in-box is piled up with PR poop again, Eleven minutes past eleven,  shall we have a listen to this new Hawk Eyes album? The Leeds band never quite lived up to that early Chickenhawk adventure,  the early days promised so much more than the safety harness that came with the name change, they kind of cashed it all in for the cover of a glossy magazine, why did they do that, who got in their ear? This new album Everything Is Fine, due out in the new year, is pretty standard, pretty slick, pretty harmless, decent enough, modern alternative rock that, without being anything that bad, really doesn’t challenge anything much, more indifferent “stuff” and I guess if Foo Fighter shaving foam music is the best that you can get, if the compromise of conformity satisfies your needs and the glossy world of Kerranghammer, that shouty bloke from Radio One and what the Reading Festival has become now serves your purpose then Hawk Eyes are compromised enough for you. Surely it doesn’t always have to be watered down? Hell no, beware! The best bands don’t water it down, the best bands don’t treat you like a dumb consumer when they serve up their new release, music doesn’t have to compromise.
.
I guess everything has to be watered down for mass consumption in the end doesn’t it? Sanitised easy to digest fast food rock music, the nice neat compromise of so-called street art, the lack of consideration that is canned dog food music, dried cat food art, of Ford Cortinas, a new print release just in time for Christmas and the rest of the baggage that comes with the monkey of expectation riding on the back of the random man on the radio talking about his latest play right now.  Throwing on this and that, click on the link in press release full of hyperblab and more you should like this because the big glossy mag likes it and so does the man from BBC6music and you better damn well cover it double quick or you’re going to look uncool, more bands that sound like Foo Fighterpoop, has there even been a band so consistently disappointing as those Foo Fighters?. Hang on, here’s another, some band called Undermine (from buttflip, New Jersey) who want us to tell you about something or other, well it doesn’t matter what they want us to tell you really if that’s all they’ve got, no, we don’t want to take your hand and be your superhero.. Here, here’s a “nice” Christmas tune from Maps and Polly Scattergood while we wonder what happened to all that Liars stuff and suck on some humbugs.
.
.
Meanwhile some self proclaimed post-punk band from Norwich have a new album in March, hang on through, the press release for the band we’re pretty sure you’ve never heard of says the news is embargoed until 6pm tonight so we can’t tell you any of this right now, you’re going ot have to wait until teatime!  Gawd, the world is waiting for that one eh? Can any of us stand the tension until the clock slowly clicks around to 6pm? Pretty sure the BBC will break in to the evening news to tell you about the new album from Darwin and The Dinosaur at 6.01pm tonight, no need for us to tell you about their generic heard it all before pop-post-nothing-heard-it-a-million-times-already by numbers here, can we wait until it actually comes out in March? Surely there will be lines of people waiting at midnight along Oxford Street on actual release date? Can we actually wait until 6pm to tell you about it? Embargoed! What d’ya mean, the BBC didn’t mention it? Sky news? No? Really, never mind Darwin, how much do you pay that PR company to send out this bulshit? Answers on a postcard to someone who cares while we consider the proper challenge of JG THIRLWELL performing at London’s Cage Oto, tomorrow, Tuesday
.
Thank gawd for Cafe Oto! Hang on, forget Cafe Oto or JG Thirwell, forget that hot embargoed news from that massive stadium band from Norwich, forget everything else, apparently, according to this press release e.mail right here, this is something new from the best unsigned band in the UK right now.  Can ALL you music-pimping PR companies, if you haven’t got anything decent to offer, stop cluttering up our day with this time-wasting poop please.  Jeez, here’s another one – “Embargoed until 6pm GMT” So we can’t tell you that “Post-Punk Trio, I, The Lion Have Announced The Details Of Their New EP – Run”. The Cheltenham band aren’t too bad actually, nothing that excited us that much, but if you like your formulaic indie-whatever-you-call-it-punk-pop, then I guess they’re just about okay. We’ll probably never mention them on these pages again, but hey, they can’t help the annoying dumbass press release poop that’s posted out on their behalf   Enough of all this, oh no, hang on, here’s moe,  “Hi there, We are *****’ mainly based in Lancashire and we have just released our debut EP! So was wondering if we could possibly get some amazing air time with you guys at all?”  No! Here, here’s some JG Thirwell and a few things that are words worth….
.
This Tuesday evening, Tuesday December 16th, at London’s Cafe Oto – “Cholera Nocebo is a 50 minute electro-acoustic presentation performed by Australian-born, NYC-based composer/producer/performer JG Thirlwell with electronics, autoharp, objects and prepared piano. It is an immersive multi channel composition which allows for an elastic performance incorporating live re-composition and improvisation into the structure of the work, incorporating musique concrete and electronic sound along with live instrumentation”.

Nick Harris has premiered his new single Calm Your Demons

Calm Your Demons is evidence of Harris’ progression, and captivates the sound of Harris’ transformation in the wilds of nature and his new direction by uniting charming and rustic guitar with an almost mystical wind and string accompaniment. The song builds until it coalesces in a cacophony of madness, until the guitar emerges triumphant and the song breaks back in to its percussive stride, whilst the vocals develop almost to the chant of a well versed psalm, giving them an alluring and hypnotic feel”.

The track comes from Nick Harris‘ forthcoming album The Tall Trees, which is due out on 23rd February 2015 via Shifted Fiction Records.

SEAN WORRALL

Leaves @ Angus Hughes Gallery

NEXT SHOWS, CULTIVATE – THE BOOK AND…. Meanwhile, we’re up to things, the next stage in terms of Cultivate is coming together, the book is coming together, new shows are being planned. We’ve moved on from Vyner Street now, Cultivate was always more of an evolving idea that a specific place, a way of thinking, more than just another gallery. We’re at work on new shows and events in a variety of spaces and places, expect more news sometime very soon. The book is shaping up to be an A-Z reflection of three years of Cultivate’s time in Vyner Street, a look at the art, the artists who joined in, the people, the shows, the shoes, the street and more…

So maybe see you at the Xmas Artist’s Bazaar, an exercise in creativity, art making and sharing, doing rather than just consuming..  SEAN

ORGAN THING: Anonymous Bash? Today is the day, what’s Charles Hayward doing today?

“Today is the day, official release, ANONYMOUS BASH”, so said the ever rewarding Charles Hayward yesterday, what’s he on about? Find out lots lots more here.  The rule is, if it has Charles Hayward’s name on it then it is going to be interesting…

.

Who is he?
an_bashLegendary drummer and composer Charles Hayward is widely know as the founding member of This Heat, whose importance has had a lasting legacy on all things experimental on the independent scene. Since their split in 1982, drummer Charles Hayward has continually been at the forefront of experimental music, with stints in Crass, Bill Laswell’s Massacre, his own Camberwell Now collective and a slew of art installation projects. The last few years have seen Hayward focusing on his solo work, which, upon listening, makes it abundantly clear that the innovation inherent in his formative years is still alive and well. A true pioneer in contemporary music, he combines a whirling dervish of mesmeric electronics, inventive percussion and otherworldly vocal collages in a sound that is still peerless and unclassifiable.  2010 saw the birth of Hayward’s slowly evolving music project Monkey Puzzle Trio. A collaboration with Pinski Zoo bassist Nick Doyne-Ditmas and the words, voice and texture of avant-garde vocalist Viv Corringham, together creating a distinctive sound world which is exhilarating and immersive and reflects the sensitivity and experience of all three musicians.
