Subism Jail party…

Click the link for some pictures from the recent subism jail party. Go on. It looks like the night was pretty unique, and by all accounts it went off! Another one i missed due to my retreat to Scotland! I’ll definately be at the next one though.

“Built in 1756, Derby’s reputedly haunted ‘Gaol’ housed some of the area’s most notorious villains and features prisoners’ original ‘graffiti’…names, dates and day markers etched into the cell doors, marking down how many days the prisoner had until execution.
The night will featured Subism’s artist collective and Subism Live resident DJ’s and special guests. People came and watched, danced or just drank and chill out in the Gaol’s cells. The Gaol doors were closed at 10.30pm for a lock-in until 2am. Get out of jail free cards where available on the night.
To avoid overcrowding, there was a limited number of 50 inmates that were granted access to the Gaol. This was a truly special unique Subism Live party!”

Skullduggery Gallery and Cherrybomb… a look around

To make up for my pear cider induced lack of decent photographs from the opening night, here’s a proper look around the gallery and shop space:

Confirmed artists for The Skullduggery Gallery opening…

Skullduggery gallery grand opening, Cherry Bomb, Derby. Jan 30th, 2010…

Happy new year everyone!

Things are getting off to a flying start this year, with the opening of a brand new gallery space in Derby. The Skullduggery Gallery will be showcasing the work of some seriously interesting contemporary artists, kicking things off with a grand opening show on the 30th of January. I’m not posting a list of the exhibiting artists until everyone is confirmed, just in case i jinx it all, but BxOxTxC finally has three new T-shirt designs available at the event featuring work by myself, Adam Gray, and the living legend who goes by the name of Simon True.

Follow the links to the facebook groups near the bottom of the post for more details…

The Skullduggery Gallery is situated in Cherry Bomb on Saddler Gate, Derby. If you’ve never heard of Cherrybomb, thats because it used to be called Boo. After a cheeky little refurb and a change of identity, it’s back with both guns blazing.

Right then, hopefully I’ll see you all there ready to support some real homegrown artists and projects. This event is about as D.I.Y as it gets, so come on down and show some love.

Finally, a massive thank you to Holly, Rootz, and Gavin for making it all happen.

Thank you, Boo…

A massive thank you goes out to Boo in Derby, who have kindly stocked their shop with a few of our T-shirts and girls vests. Much obliged to you for that! Boo specialises in Fairtrade and sustainable goods, and the shop on Saddlergate is full to the brim with a fantastically diverse mix of unique, well made, and ethically minded goods. In fact, just follow the link to the website below and have a look for yourself. Or better still, just go down to the shop and have a look around and a chat! What with most of the shops on the once lovely Saddler Gate shopping street having met their demise over the last few years, it’s great to see that a few nice boutiques are keeping their heads above water. The skateshop dissapeared at some point while I was away in Japan, along with the miniramp in the beer garden of The Blue Dog (how amazing was that little set up?) , and pretty much all of the little shops I used to spend my hard earned money in.

Keep up the good work Holly! And as for you lot, i strongly suggest you get down there and do your last minute Christmas shopping.

Mysterious hand gash…

I’d like to start this post by apologizing to anyone i attempted to “converse” with last night at the Old Bell. I was in full cider fueled buffoon mode and having a thoroughly wonderful time, but i have the sneaking suspicion that anyone speaking to me was treated to a unique blend of scrumpy breath and garbled nonsense. Oh well, at least i managed to hand out a few fliers. Cheers to Andy for helping with that! Anyway, here’s a picture of Jamie wearing one of our shirts. Marvelous.

Poundaflesh and the U.K. subs played a blinder, of course, and i woke up with a mysterious inch long gash on my left palm and a strange sense of guilt.
