“Look, I’ve got my cricket gear in my car.”

I always find it pretty exciting when new tidbits like the one below come to light, especially considering how much we already know about A Clockwork Orange. This great interview with Malcolm McDowell and Leon Vitali is full of ’em. McDowell on how the iconic white Droog outfits came about… The codpiece and the white...
Charles Ross: Star Axis

Charles Ross: Star Axis

Star Axis is an amazing piece of sculpture (still unfinished some 35 years after work began) in the New Mexico desert by artist Charles Ross. I could quite easily imagine this cropping up in a Kenneth Anger film. I just dearly wish we had the time and money to pay it a visit. Judging by...

Cluck! The True Story Of Chickens In The Cinema

I first came across Cluck! The True Story Of Chickens In The Cinema at the Hoxton Book Depositary about eight years ago. It’s a bible for all things foul and feathered across sixty odd years of cinema.

This Is A High Society (Listen)

This Is A High Society (Listen)

Another short-lived, mainly 7″ label that I was a big fan of (especially the Ed Laliq releases) was High Society. Existing for two short years between 2002-2004 it was run by PPQ label manager James Mullord (read all about PPQ here), who would later go on to manage Pete Doherty (also releasing his first solo...
