'Margot The Maggot Girl' - new print by John Dunivant

'Margot The Maggot Girl' - new print by John Dunivant. Available now via 1XRun for $100. Purchase now HERE.

John Dunivant: "Margot The Maggot Girl came together in 2007 from sketching up of a few different characters. I was thinking about the baby mutants in jars that old carnies used to display, a lot of the old fetuses that didn't make it. They would have all these weird little mutations sometimes two heads, or no body, some with some seal-like flippers, all these different things. I was talking with one of the troops that we work with, and they would come up with these different names of combination of part animal parts humans, so I was thinking in that world. I thought how all these different babies would live and Margot became one of them. She doesn't quite age. she still has the body of this little girl, but in maggot form. She can't quite grow past that age, so she has this bit of melancholy about her. She used to hang in the arcade down at the original Theatre Bizarre grounds and this last year at the Masonic Temple she's been hanging around the Theatre Bizarre stage. " 

Happy Halloween from various artists

GIG REVIEW: S.O.B. at Motion nightclub [Bristol] for LEE SCRATCH PERRY, 26th October 2012

Last Friday night we left the cosy confines of S.O.B towers to get our skank-on at Motion Nightclub for a special evening of dub fueled mayhem! 

From the minute we entered the club, it was apparent that this gig was a crowd-puller and after taking the obligatory tour around each of the four rooms, found the overall energy to be something undeniable. The music was a good mix of slower dub tempo riddims, skank infused hip hop, Bristol's own speciality dubstep and hardcore jungle for the ravers. This meant something for all musical tastes and a chance for us to sample some otherwise unexplored genres, as we partied towards the events climax.

At around 2:00am excitement had begun to build in the main room in anticipation of the final act, Mr. Lee Scratch Perry. At this point getting backstage was as exhilarating for us as it was for Wayne and Garth at the Alice Cooper gig; we did not feel worthy-we suck! It did, however, enable us to get a perfect vantage point as The Upsetter himself ambled onto stage, mic in hand and ready to dub!

The music was rich and heavy with Perry sticking to his more traditional dub tempo back catalogue, (personal favourite, 'I Am A Madman' went down particularly well). At times the vocals were muffled over the weight of the band but this did not take away from the incredible atmosphere in the building.

The headliner's performance was generally graceful and laid back except for the occasional hop, skip and 'judo kick' thrown in to show us he’s still hungry to entertain. Throughout the performance he quietly made the stage his home by scorching various objects with his lighter and other bizarre behaviour that kept our eyes glued to him as he worked.

As the show came to a close the 76 year old Rasta humbly thanked the crowd, took hold of his ‘carry on’ sized suitcase and headed for the door leaving behind him a room energised by his timeless music and eccentric personality.
Lee Scratch Perry is a genuine legend who's creative genius pioneered the dub sound and helped to shape the careers of other musical talents including that of Bob Marley. To watch this man perform was an unforgettable experience and a true honour indeed! Look out for him in a town near you as he continues his European tour.

Evil Dead Red Band - Trailer #1

Okay, so here's the first trailer for the remake of Evil Dead which is due for release on April 12th 2013. From the trailer it looks like they have dropped the 'fun' element and gone for full-blown horror. In fact, I was quite shocked by the level of gore and violence in this trailer alone! Guess I'm getting old....Got an opinion about this remake? Feel free to leave it in the comments section below.

Not seen the original Evil Dead? Check out the original trailer then get straight onto Amazon. You won't be sorry!

Gary Card's Plasticine Cave

Just found this installation piece made for Spring Studios Gallery a while ago by Gary Card.

"As with a lot of my projects for initial idea is very immediate, 'How about a Plasticine cave!?' I'd never seen plasticine used in huge quantities before and thought it would be wonderful to make a claustrophobic structure out of the stuff. I remember I wanted to make an enviroment that made you feel a little strange and uneasy."

If you're not familiar with Card's other work have a look at these images below and why not take a visit to his BLOG.
