Coops and Coops Jr at Rough Trade
From today, Visual Vitriol pitches up around and about Brick Lane way - Rough Trade East to be exact. A usually US based display of punk and new wave flyers, time-lining from the late 70s to mid 80s, collected together by David Ensminger. This expo, it's first London installation, is curated by friend of the PM blog, fellow blogger, podcaster and neighbour o' mine Paul Coops..
Visual Vitriol runs from the 2nd-31st August. so hoof your boots eastwards and grab an eyeful of the good stuff, which includes this angry mob gathered together amongst the gallery of Xerox-copied cut and paste promo....
The Damned, The Cramps, Nirvana, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Bad Brains, Adicts, Toy Dolls, Subhumans, Joy Division, The Fall, Conflict, UK Subs, Bad Religion, Plasmatics, Suicidal Tendencies, Dickies, Angelic Upstarts, Discharge, NOFX, GBH, Adverts, Cortinas, 999, Slaughter & the Dogs, Slits, The Boys, Germs and Weirdos
Although keep your peepers peeled and you may even spot an ad' for one of my old band's Pink Toothbrush gigs...(it's in the pic above!)
By coincidence, tonight's Radio Podrophenia comes fitted around similar riffs and rockers - teen rebellion , youth cults or music and movements you could say - being the theme. Excepting any last minute switcheroos, expect to hear: Acid Jazzers doing NWOBHM, new bands covering Blitz-kid tunes and some tracks hand-picked for us by experts in their respective fields - Paolo Hewitt (mod), David Quantick (indie/goth)and Marco Pirroni (glam)..
We Have Moved: what was S6 is now Chance. So you'll find Piley and myself setting up our radio base camp hereabouts from 9 tonight
A tune that fits the mood of the doings is All The Young Dudes. Rather than chip in Mott the Hoops cover - how about this Bowie-boot versh of The Dame's original recording. Alt-stereo mix and speed adjusted apparently
David Bowie - All The Young Dudes (Stereo Alt Mix At Correct Speed)
