VHS Bleep Boxes

I'm making a limited edition run of 10 of these little bleep boxes housed in old VHS cassette tape covers. Big thanks to Marty Malone for the kind donation of a heap of horror and zombie movies. Thanks to Derek Holzer and (who had their domain squatted recently) for their tuition. If you would like to buy one get in touch.

Trans:missions 090710

The show in the Crescent Arts Centre was quite a different event than any others I've played recently. The space was quite full of people drinking their carry outs, the room was parts; party, gallery, studio and gig, with two teams of artists (one from Belfast, the other from Dublin) engaging in 'Secret Wars', a competitive 'draw off' or whatever you want to call it.

The two teams had 90 minutes to fill in a large white rectangular board using only black paint and black felt tip markers. Both did a grand job.

The crowd seemed to enjoy it. I had fun playing a set that moved from about 110 - 180 bpm and screaming lots through a distortion and delay pedal.

Pressure present Oneman 100710

Pressure had Oneman (Rinse FM/Radio1) over at the Black Box.
They played a great bunch of records and plenty of people got up and did a bit of shaking
(the soundsystem helped make things dance even if they didn't choose to).

Ecker 090710

The last ECKER at the Menagerie Bar.
End of an era. It was good while it lasted.
Here's a video of some people having a good time
(crowd surfing - if you watch carelessly).

Trans - Summer BASE

Trans is on again. YAY!

I'll be doing a couple of things that you might enjoy.
Ecker + guest Submerse - last show at the Menagerie before it stops doing live shows and club nights,
I'll be doing visuals at the end of the night, before that though, you can hear me performing a set of popular rhythms at Trans:mission at the Crescent Arts Centre. I'll also be on BBC Radio Ulster 92-95 FM, 1341 MW) doing a live session to promote the show.

I've made some promo cassette tapes as 'merch'. There are two mixes; side a - demos from 2009/2010, and side b - remixes from my archives.
Once/if they've sold out, I'll post mp3's of the mixes.

I'll be doing visulas at Pressure's Oneman show too - expect lots of tight digital lines and some primitive live camera work from me and a heap of tasy rhythms and bass from the residents and guest.

Distroboto + BBQ VoL. 2


Old cigarette vending machines which now sell art; three inch DCs and DVDs, buttons, cassette tapes, books, zines, comix. I found these machines at Casa Del Popolo and La Salla Rosa whilst enjoying the Suoni Pel Il Popolo festival.

Some products are dispensed without packaging (cassettes), others (discs etc) in remixed cigarette packaging, or in little parcels made of blocks of corrugated plastic (maybe cut from old election adverts) wrapped in puppy-print cellophane - the machines have boxes on top for you to leave the packaging to be recycled, or submit your own piece of art for consideration.

I bought numerous pretty little things from these machines, both for myself and as little gifts. Here is one I'm sharing with you, a mix tape fit for Summer.
