It’s been a good (if Arctic) year for Board of Fun collaborators so far. Come and say hello when we next convene at the BoF zine fair and music night, now confirmed for 4 May 2013 at the Dentist, 33 Chatsworth Road, Hackney, London. More news of that to follow. Meanwhile, I thought I’d point you in the direction of some of the extra-curricular work we’ve been up to.
This image was Zoë Taylor‘s first commission for the New York Times Book Review:
It’s a mysterious and subtly odd drawing that does a lot without giving too much away. See more of Zoë’s work at her website.
Meanwhile, Ross Palmer (who produced my next album, Smalltime, and has long been a writer for this blog) has started his own music site called SongsFromSoDeep. Lots of great writing from a practitioner’s perspective, as well as wider socio-political ruminations…
And here’s an article from the beginning of the month that I wrote for the New Statesman magazine about the demise of the Lorelei in Soho. It was a small, independent restaurant that had fed Londoners since the late-1960s and somehow managed to maintain an unfussy, family atmosphere till its closing night. Mr Bravin and Faye, you (and your Diavola pizzas) are missed.
Oh, and this is a picture of our friend and BoF veteran Tim Street, taken that evening:
That’s all for now (as it’s dinner).
