DELIFINGER CD ARTWORK FEATURED IN EXHIBITION

This is the artwork in question....the cover of the 'girl who cried wolf' EP, released in 1984. Delifinger did the main image and Boonbeans added his trademark 'white glow' and 'green swirls'

The exhibition space was on Colwyn Bay pier, a fantastic example of victorian seaside architecture in its own right.

Only Women and pets were aloud in to see the work, due to fears that testosterone levels could put the ancient structure in jeapardy.


Boonbeans entered a piece as well, but after being rejected from the main show,it was put outside to scare away small children and crows. The piece entitled 'hungry dwarf' is made from 14840 smarties held together with maple syrup and moth sweat.

You can now get ya mitts on it by going through the front door of our website and placing an order which we will process (in our office) and then send out to you 1st class! The album artwork is currently in production (you don't think we'd use that photo do you?). There are two options when ordering..

2) Handmade Album* & Lucky Dip** (hand painted artwork on card) - £8
* Only 25 handmade albums will be made.
** Lucky Dip prizes are secret. They could be anything..it's a tombola!

"The album drifts along with all the unquestioned sense of a surreal dream..it's a huge, slow-dawning success" - Venue Magazine

"Bare Foot always jumps back to surprize you with a sunrise, illuminating it's on way, travelling everywhere you want to go but always forgot to ask" - Drunken Werewolf Magazine

"This album is excellent!" - SJ Esau

Here are the full reviews (Venue / Werewolf).

We understand no one actually buys music anymore (including us) but just think..if you give us your money, we can build bigger and better instruments and take on the big boys.

$$$! C.R.E.A.M GET THE MONEY, DOLLAR DOLLAR BILL Y'ALL!

VENUE MAGAZINE FEATURE

Slow news week in the Venue office was it?

The new Venue Magazine hit the shops today. Turn to page 50 to see our DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD! ha! Who would have thought!? I'm pissed off Lionheart got the BIG quote, i was hoping my comments about Fortune Drive's jeans would be chosen. For those who can't afford to buy it (like me..well i did but that did mean i went without my pasty today!) we've scaned it in (click to enlarge)..


Nice Peaches!


Blabber..blab..ga ga..pah! yeah whatever!


..And if all that wasn't enough, while flicking through the mag i stumbled across the 'I Saw You' page. It looks like Lionheart & Seaweed have some secret admirers.
BB maybe??..


DF maybe??..


Look out for us next week as we'll be guest editing Mechanix Illustrated!

TOP TRUMPS

Someone with way too much time on their hands made Fence Records top trump cards. below are a few of them. OLO WILD CARD!!


DREAM (Of The Royals)

FIELD DAY

Boonbeans, Lionheart & friends took the big bus down to Victoria Park, London for the Field Day Festival. We enjoyed the toilet queue, the beer queue, the burger queue, and the queue to punch the soundman. We caught Caribou, Battles, Justice, Fridge, Gruff Rhys, Adem, The Aliens, The Earlies, Fanfarlo, & our good friends..The Fence Collective. Bit annoyed we missed Bat For Lashes, Archie Bronson Outfit, and Liars. We ended up going to some club for a Fence DANCE-OFF! Lionheart threw a big strop on the walk home cos he was missing 'proper food' and his bed. ha! Here's some pics..

Caribou..

Yorkston, Pictish, Creosote..

VENUE INTERVIEW

NO TIME TO CHAT..WILL TELL WHEN BACK FROM LONDON TOWN..MUST RUN..CATCH BUS!!
BYEEE.

* We're back from little ol' London now, in fact we got back on Sunday but.."these things take tiiiiime!" as Morrissey once sang. Yes so we were interviewed by Bristol's Venue Magazine last week (photos below). Delifinger was on a pony trek so was forced to miss the chat so we took one of his many stand-in heads along. It was quite a good laugh actually. Lovely man, lovely man, lovely man. He only asked 2 questions but we managed to fill both sides of his cassette tape. He wrote quotes in his little book when one of us said something pretentious. The OLO feature will be out Weds 22nd August.
