Level 3.2

…remember these?….

…they moved on to be….

…and….

…they eventually became…

….repurposed as a New Zealand Music Month vid’ for Dee’s wonderfully catchy tune, “shit fly”…written to celebrate the delightful cloud of short-lived flying things that hover round the outhouse out at Aramoana….

…a fitting end for nearly 100 brooches presented in a custom built carry case for a pre-xmas market thing that didn’t happen….

…(damn…thought I had a bunch of photos of the production lay out…flies all arranged on trays with the “colour guide” post it notes that I used to ensure that none of the flies have the same colour scheme)…

…er…

…here’s some post video shots…..

…maybe they’ll have another market this coming Xmas….

…if we’re allowed out by then….

Lockdown 31

….before we get into this I must apologise to Chris for my blatant desecration of his wonderful artwork that graces the cover of the Tiny Pieces of 8 Lp, “She Shanties For Frank”…

…hopefully you can forgive me bro’….

…but….

…I couldn’t resist all that empty space….

…and we had a few extra copies of the screen printed cover floating about….

…and I wanted my copy of the Lp (number 13) to be a little more different than the rest with it’s personalised burnt CD of the early mixes….

…and….um….

….and as my cousin Phil is always fond of saying….

…”you know what would look good on that?….a skull and crossbones, that’s what”….

…there…..admission done…


…now to go find some more empty space….

Lockdown 3

…the truth is I’m not really locked down…I work for a transport firm…unloading truck & trailer units and rail wagons, late at night, with a fork lift…I’m “essential”…at least while the freight still flows…we’ve already had our hours cut and start times moved as the numbers of truck arrivals are reduced….

…I’d have to admit to being a little disappointed that all the projects that immediately sprang to mind when the lockdown was announced, are now out of reach…especially with the shift in start/finish times meaning that I’ll be arriving home very close to my usual bedtime reducing the amount of daylight hours/Dee not sleeping hours available to me to nil…. so I’m picking that I’ll be sleep maladjusted and more than a little bit grumpy for the duration….(will be painting up a storm and/or complaining blogging in the wee hours to console myself)…..

…yay….

….could be worse…

…while I’m at work my hallway could fall foul to an infestation of musicians and the instruments they rode in on…

…(note – amplifier in middle of hallway is disproportionately larger than attached instrument and plugged into the outlet closest to the log burner)….

…(not a trip hazard at all)….

Deedrees Rekkid

…celebrated the release of Dee’s new album, “She Shanties For Frank”, a week back…

…wicked gig in a great room (let’s do that again)…didn’t get many (if any) good picks from the back (and under the influence)….but maybe if you know this guy…

…he recorded quite a bit of the gig and took loads of photos….

…anyways….

https://www.tpo8.com/music.html

…hit the address above go to the “music” section and there’s a couple of tunes to listen to….and if you click on the “She Shanties For Frank” image it will take you to band camp where you can download the album…..

….also available on cassette locally….

…and in these covers with a lyric booklet…(cover image and screen printing by Chris…booklet hand drawn/water colour washed by Dee….foldingstaplinggluingtrimming by me…)

…when we receive the round black plastic inserts…huge props to Holiday Records…bringing vinyl production back to NZ for the first time since last century…

….bring the noise.

In Absentia

…after taking my cold/man flu out to that gig at the Crown on Thurs’ night I had nothing left in the tank to take part in this….IMG_6402

 

…sorry guys, I know you were relying on my photo journalistic “skills” for promoting the album…

..in lieu of turning up I thought I’d share this pic’ of Callum thinking about what to write down as he listens to the rough mix instore @ Too Tone…IMG_5936

…and this pic’ of Callum writing the stuff he thought of down instore @ Too Tone…

IMG_5937

…and this pic’ of Seedy thinking about how many pages of stuff Callum is going to write down whilst he is instore across the road at the New World Supermarket….
