Going through a box of (recent) printed matter at home on Sunday morning. Came across this from last year. 🙁 Jonathan Horowitz 'Hillary 16', oversized folded poster. (Need to locate my copy of the earlier Obama version.) #hillary16 #jonathanhorowitz @passerbystop @gavinbrownsenterprise #beautifulpiecesofpaper

  • 🇮🇪❤️💚💛 Zebra “Ireland’s Only Reggae Group” 🙂 - the song ‘931’ on the b-side of this completely under-known 1979 Good Vibrations 12” is seriously astonishing. This is their only release. Beautiful low-fi folded paper sleeve. Same label as Irish punks The Undertones, Rudi, Protex etc. The a-side (‘Repression’) is on Youtube, but I couldn’t find ‘931’. Seek and ye shall find! 🙂 #zebra #goodvibrations #931 #repression #irishreggae

  • ❤️ Martin Creed’s (genius) anonymous Valentine’s Day message (‘Hello’) commissioned by Imprint 93 and published in The Guardian, 14 February 1999. For a few years in the 1990s I commissioned artists to create works/texts that I would then pay to have published in The Guardian’s annual Valentine’s Day issue. They were never announced or publicized and remained anonymous. All of them will be included in the ‘Imprint 93’ exhibition at Printed Matter, opening this Friday, 6-8pm. All welcome! @martin_creed #imprint93 @printedmatterinc #valentinesday @passerbystop @gavinbrownsenterprise #hello #martincreed @guardian

  • In honor of Terry Hall visiting White Columns last night! 🙂 ... Does it get any better?! 🙃🔥🙂 Fun Boy Three’s David Byrne-produced 1983 masterpiece ‘Our Lips Are Sealed’. This US 12” includes the astonishing long ‘special’ remix AND the mind-blowing ‘Urdu Version’. 💥 Straight to Youtube: Urdu version first, then the sublime special remix! #terryhall #funboythree #davidbyrne @luakabop #janewiedlin

  • 🙂🙃 Wednesday morning music in honor of Terry Hall being at White Columns last night! Fun Boy Three - who made so many amazing records. The a-side is an avant-pop classic, but the b-side ‘Faith, Hope and Charity’ is among the most ahead of its time records ever made, eventually becoming a Hacienda classic and it also seemed to anticipate Ron Hardy’s brand of moody Music Box-era house music by almost five years. 🔥 Eternal Classic. Straight to Youtube! #funboythree #terryhall #faithhopeandcharity
