Good Lord its Christmas time again
and we hope you have a fantastic one...
full of snowflakes, spacecakes, time travel
morecombe and wise,
terry and june,
callard and bowser,
crocket and Jones,
Simon and Garfunkel
peters and lee
cannon and ball.....
...sunsets and sunrises, much good news
and tidings from afar,
long lost soulmates,
songbirds rescued from ice and warmed back to life
fancy presents, gloves socks chocolates
and many dreams of the come true kind
are wished for you
from Art Pop HQ,
Earbones and The Aft
PS...We have just been in the recording studio and have laid down, as they say, some musical masterpieces - namely
Brixton, Kings Cross, Stale Biscuits and a definitve The Son
coming your way in a variety of forms,
some of them very hand made,
In the New Year which we
also happily wish for you...
See you all soon!!

Some more photos from the goings on last weekend....this time from the Attic, above Hackney Picture House on Mare St, Hackney (Used to be The Ocean......)....seeing as most of you got lost somewhere on route.....great gig tho!!!....PS Last photo is me in 1978....as you can see, time has been kind to me...I am very rarely mistaken for a girl these days, unlike Ian and Biscuit.
Here's some photos of us performing last Saturday at The Half Moon Herne Hill in front of our newly painted backdrop and screens that took me months to make....also some pics of our wonderful guests Kill The Dandies, Lark and Captal.....They had to perform in front of it too... On a rainy night with England awash with floods and flu, I only wish more of you could have seen it...but maybe you'll get another chance next year?...... xxx. More Pics Later!!!

This is my new painted Bones & The Aft
painted performance backdrop..which will be unveiled
in all its glory probably at the upcoming Half Moon gig on
24th November along with eight free standing
painted wooden screens.....Too difficult to install
at Hackney picture house I'm thinking....
Anyway....for those of you who like such details,
its acrylic on canvas - three bits sewn
together, because the finished thing is actually
bigger than the bigest wall in my studio and
I had to do it in sections and stitch it together ( Its about 12 ft by 8 ft)
These two are details.....the top image is most of
the central image ..about two feet cut off each side
Golden, Mythical South London, in
front of which we shall proudly cavort...

Stars of the show, naturally were Kathy's wonderful clothes which narratively celebrate our lives in what we wear.....and also, strangely, the scale models Bones & The Aft:
