Reblog: Playlist: My Mixtape #19 Clear TDK 90

Just quickly sharing a great mixtape by a great blogger. Hope you like it!


I really wanted to get to number two zero last month for my mixtape project but off course didn’t and this is the first one this month which we are now half already. So my mid-week blog post is one closer to twenty! It’s got 99 in black pen on the top right corner so that’s the year 1999? Then also written is the very informative two words of “some songs” in very small letters. That’s really helpful, what else is it going to be is what I want to know?

Side A:

#1. Matt WalkerAll By Myself 

#2. Matt WalkerListen To The Night

#3. Jeff Lang

I don’t know Burgess per se, but I did recently win one of his frequent competitions on Twitter having been rather fortunately chosen at random. The prize was some artwork by Pete Fowler (Monsterism, Super Furry Animals) for Burgess’ latest book. Both artwork and book are really rather wonderful.

(There was even a bonus sketch by…

Street art by democracy – the Market Road Gallery

Sorry, don't have time for another post today so here's a post about street art coming from my city:

Urban Kultur Blog

Have you ever seen a piece of street art so good that you wish it could stay crisp and clean just a little longer, before eventually succumbing to tags, or just painted over? Or maybe you’ve seen something so truly awful that you wished you could erase it from the wall, and your memory, forever?

Well, in one part of London, that’s exactly what you can do. Step forward, Market Road Gallery!

This collaborative project between Central Saint Martins (part of University of the Arts London, counting street artist Vhilsamong its alumni) and ethical storage company, Attic Self Storage, brings the power to the people when it comes to what stays and what goes on the 65 metre long canvas.

Art lovers can use the specially designed web-app (and website) to give praise, and extended life, to a great wall – or consign it to the “buff”…
