People Are Strange


What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images //
Mad Matisse Garms

I'm going to be embroidering tshirts on request too just send me a message

here are some photos show-casing the vague examples of the bags, integrated with fun Matisse-cut-outs and sum gr8 quotes by gr8 artists..

"With colour one obtains an energy that seems to stem from witchcraft." -Matisse
"My curves are not crazy" - Matisse

Here, I'm wearing a new one-of-a-kind shirt I bought in Golbourne Rd Market~ it's from a tailor's shop in Thailand that the stall owner bought when it was displayed for stitching examples to customers. It shows all the girls-schools' crests in the area it was bought from and it's super cute ~~
"I wouldn't mind turning into a vermilion goldfish" -Matisse
"Drawing makes you see things clearer, and clearer and clearer still, until your eyes ache." - Hockney

The other day I saw Peace and Bombay Bicycle Club live at Earl's Court London and as expected Peace were so so great. It was the 6th time I have seen them, and I never regret it~~ this time, Harrison Koisser sauntered onstage wearing a poncho: it was the most heavenly thing. It reminded me of Vince Noire in The Mighty Boosh, who claims "you can never be unhappy in a poncho" because Harrison's joy was radiating in glorious waves.
They played Gen Strange, the new song from their forthcoming album which was dreamy to hear for the first time live, and everyone screamed "How do you do it?" right back at Harrison~~

Sam Koisser had traded his ordinary black skinny jeans for glittery trousers, as dark as his silky black hair. For the first time ever he had surprisingly found some sort of new MAGICAL stage presence asl well, and it was beautiful. Opening with the classic Lovesick and finishing their supporting set with World Pleasure: And as the resounding base line began to fade out and Doug's bopping head movements subsided, a boy standing next to me (whose face was covered in Peace stickers) and the rest of the crowd cried out for more.
I had a very emotional time in the Tate Britain yesterday when I went to see the Turner Prize exhibition of up-and-coming modern artists. I have nothing against "post-modern" art and some of the artists were v talented and cool but WHERE WERE THE PAINTINGS AND THE SOUL ART it was all fkn film art which didn't 100% constitute as art.
It was super disappointing but then I came out feeling all moody and walked straight into the Hockney/Freud/Moore room and it was like finding a lake after 100days in the desert. It was beautiful and I was so haPPY to see Lucian Freud's Girl With Kitten and Hockney's A Bigger Splash like they were my old friends and all my faith in British art was 100% restored..

FUR //

It's almost CHRISTMAS that means a new Peace xmas song cover and festivities and holidays soon!!! Time 4 lots of fur and tea and tinsel everywhere (Also seeing Peace for the 6th time in December!!)

I also recently did lots of work experience at the National Portrait Gallery in the Grayson Perry exhibition and saw some Lucian Freud portraits on the weekend too which were all gr8, and watched Blue Is The Warmest Colour, a French film with Lea Seydoux which is v beautiful~~

I am listening to lots of Radiohead, War on Drugs and Parquet Courts, and I saw TEMPLES and MAC DEMARCO live recently!!!!
Temples was so beautiful, there was an analogue projection of psychedelic swirls of colour in their backdrop and James Bagshaw glittered all over and it was perfect. 
Mac Demarco was FANTASTIC - he helped all his pals set up their set and then wandered onstage and someone threw their shoe at him so he played catch with it and smelt it lots and then he played the most joks encore without a shirt on. Passing Out Pieces was so fab live as well- he then proceeded to crowd surf and play the Top Gun theme tune for 10 minutes, occasionally singing in his v v low Rock n Roll Nightclub voice, it was all a dream <3
