Yesterday I visited the Axolotl Gallery
for the first time, which is a poor show
on my part as it is about ten minutes
away from G®T HQ. Anyways, it's a
pretty nice gallery with some good
works which are slightly more up my
street than some of the other places
on Dundas Street. Worth a peek if
you're in the 'burgh.
Right, I'm going to lay claim to being the
first person in the 'deen to been playing her
records many moons ago but I've kind of
lost interest in M.I.A to be honest.
Her followup stuff has been ok, her latest
"controversial" video was well shot but pretty
passé as ideas go I thought, but this photo for
The New York Times Magazine is pretty cool.
Mature way to react to the the article though huh?
All the pics are shot by Ryan McGinley who
can't seem to put a foot wrong of late.

The art of sign writing is having a good bit
of exposure right now which is great as it's
a real artform. Another documentary is in
the works from Faythe Levine & Sam Macon
over in the US with the simple but straightforward
title of The Sign Painter.
Domino Records have released some quality
output and they've teamed up with Uniqlo
to produce some tshirts featuring artits on
their roster including a few for Clinic.
I'm not totally swayed on some of the t's
they've printed onto but you can make
you own mind up and buy them here.

1948 is one of the nicest trainer shops I've
been in around the globe. Really it's pure
folly on the part of Nike but it's certainly
worth seeking out when you're in London.
The Wilson Brothers have some nice
videos and pictures of their installations
in there at their site including this video.

Stüssy have got together with Al Fingers to
produce an visual and aural treat documenting
the history of Greensleeves Records.
The book is a pretty concise history of the label
and there's a mix of plenty of the tracks from the
first 10 years of the label. Aside from that there is
also t-shirts and badges to go with it too.
A fairly hefty package I think you'll agree.
More info on it all here.

I had forgotten to post about the Diane Arbus
show that the 'Tini and me went to last month
in the Dean Gallery.
She took some good pictures of what people
deem the outer margins of society before taking
her own life aged 48. If you're in the 'burgh it's
worth a look before it ends on 13th June.
