Arizona

Motel 6 and a full bottle of fine bourbon giving us a well deserved break on this mini adventure in to AZ's wonderful countryside and strange small towns. It is day 1 and I have seen some pretty amazing stuff. Already thinking of coming back to film the strange towns and their inhabitants off the beaten track on route to Phoenix. The bland beauty I find fascinating seems to be the running theme and finding that seems to be easy. Plentiful sparse concrete suburbs surrounded by dust and horizon. Just hold off on the rain please.

I'm 2 hours from Glasgow...

And L.A. seems to be at the fore front of my mind. Maybe because of the Hollywood element to my trip Tomorrow, being by the sea and watching someone try commit homicide are two things on the agenda. Filming started a while ago but my time is just beginning.

BEER - Charles Bukowski

I don't know how many bottles of beer
I have consumed while waiting for things
to get better
I don't know how much wine and whiskey
and beer
mostly beer
I have consumed after
splits with women-
waiting for the phone to ring
waiting for the sound of footsteps,
and the phone to ring
waiting for the sounds of footsteps,
and the phone never rings
until much later
and the footsteps never arrive
until much later
when my stomach is coming up
out of my mouth
they arrive as fresh as spring flowers:
"what the hell have you done to yourself?
it will be 3 days before you can fuck me!"

the female is durable
she lives seven and one half years longer
than the male, and she drinks very little beer
because she knows its bad for the figure.

while we are going mad
they are out
dancing and laughing
with horny cowboys.

well, there's beer
sacks and sacks of empty beer bottles
and when you pick one up
the bottle fall through the wet bottom
of the paper sack
rolling
clanking
spilling gray wet ash
and stale beer,
or the sacks fall over at 4 a.m.
in the morning
making the only sound in your life.

beer
rivers and seas of beer
the radio singing love songs
as the phone remains silent
and the walls stand
straight up and down
and beer is all there is.

Charles Bukowski "The man with the beautiful eyes"



From "The Last Night On Earth Poems"

Breton - Edward The Confessor





Breton

Edward The Confessor

A short film by BretonLABS & Niall O’Brien




Visual experimentalists Breton have released a powerful and emotive short film for their forthcoming debut single Edward TheConfessor, due for release on Fat Cat Records on 21st November 2011.

The track's lyrics are based on a field recording of a conversation taking place between two unknown men, the subject matter of which is immigration and the frustration of surviving in a foreign country.

It’s a similar frustration that’s echoed in the young faces of the disaffected youths featured in photographer and film-maker Niall O'Brien's recent 'Anger' exhibition - 
four kids on a council estate in London, shot at 1000 frames per second and capturing anger in its most undiluted form.

These affecting images, interspersed throughout the video, sit somewhere between photography and moving image, contrasting with Breton's frenetic and indefinable music, yet somehow expressing the same helpless anger of the lyrics.

The result is an exciting and visually captivating piece of work – the beauty, clarity and preciseness of Niall’s photography highlighted by the deliberate hazy lo-fi vibe of Breton’s live performance.

Niall will be exhibiting the ‘Anger’ installation in London next spring.

Breton’s debut album ‘Other People’s Problems’ will be released in March 2012.

Collaboration With The Lab

Nothing make me happier to be involved with a strong source of creativity like Breton Labs. After seeing them preform last night I am certain they're going to make a massive dent in the music scene. Recently signed to Fat Cat Records and Warp Publishing deal to boot their backing proves the point. This collaboration is getting exciting.

Abe's Penny - The Coming Insurrection

Francesca Gavin and I have collaborated together on an art project for Abe's Penny who have produced postcards from a series of photographs I took in an anarchist commune in Tarnac, France this year. The commune story was written by Huw Nesbitt for Dazed and Confused. We worked 8 hours bailing hay and moving a couple tone of metal before they allowed me to take a few snaps, of a field... Luckily finding a dead fox with a bullet in his mouth made it all worth while.

Abe's Penny is a 4 postcard art project and limited edition subscription that comes out every week (one artist a month, 4 postcards per artist).

Get yer boot on. Fill yer boots. Roll your roller boots as fast as you can. Another trip to Portland would be nice to re visit the run down Roller Ballroom in the crazy fun fair just out side of town. Two kids as strange as yellow snow were dancing like no one was watching but I was and it made me think...Green light... and go!!!

Say It, I'm Not Angry Anymore - ANGER

I guess it is something which I might have foreseen... Maybe, not really sure as the only thing I can think about happened after I shot this piece last summer. While still going trough the vigorous post production and sound design stages I'm feeling pretty nervous about my first attempt to exhibit a video and sound installation. Ireland seems to be the perfect place as the Photo Ireland Festival is taking off and growing bigger each year. Thanks to Block T Gallery this is all coming together.

Shot the day before I flew to North West America on a separate month long protect, we worked hard for all the shots. Filmed at 2000 fps I wanted to capture the emotion so quick and short while relaying it as a still prolonged moment of this dramatic act. The blurb is here http://2011.photoireland.org/program/anger/ and regardless of concepts the crew and production who worked on it were mighty, thank you.

Late Night Reminiscing With The Clan

Thanks to Street Beers, I had a late night education about an old influence. It brought me back to doodling on my copy book at the back of the class being ignored by my teachers. Trying to perfect the iconic symbol that was the Wu logo. I was obsessed, I needed to know everything about them. How many were members, what their names were. Eventually I listened to the 36 chambers so much I could tell you who was rapping just by their voice even if it was a brand new song or interview. They changed hip hop massively back then and now I know even more. Look at this doc. Amazing and very sad too. Loss of life and gaining respect once more.

Duffy And The Neverending Can Of Redstripe

One of my favorite scallies to date is finally going to show the world what he is made of. Like a true exhibitionist, the man in question is not going to cut any corners here. Going all out to entertain us and bedazzle our very eyes with the skill and craftsmanship he manages to keep pretty cool about while the rest of the world rants and raves.

With a steady hand and drunken quotes to beat the band Duffy is going to be big time, some might say he is big time but regardless, he is a true artist. He Knows exactly what he wants and sticks to his guns making it work, I know he is already there.

Look at his work, buy it, cherish it and don't loose it. Fuck knows how much it will be worth after it sells out!


Get down to Redchurch Street and shout from the top of you lungs! "I'm here to see your wears, I have cash too!!!" You might be shocked at what he decides to show you...

Delirium



Vulgar of manner, overfed,
Overdressed and underbred,
Heartless, Godless, hell’s delight,
Rude by day and lewd by night;
Bedwarfed the man, o’ergrown the brute,
Ruled by boss and prostitute:
Purple-robed and pauper-clad,
Raving, rotting, money-mad;
A squirming herd in Mammon’s mesh,
A wilderness of human flesh;
Crazed by avarice, lust and rum,
New York, thy name’s "Delirium." 

Byron Rufus Newton



 

Getting A Groove On!

NYC and it might be for a while... Makes me want to shake something and spend money...

Here is to drinking on a stoop. Here is to playing music loud for no one else but the band. Here is to falling over on a skateboard. Here is to having long hair and a beard. Here is to Dolly the coolest kid in London. Here is to Street Beer, the blog that makes so much sense it is nonsensical. Watch, learn and do as they do.

You Are Wooden And Great.

Don't loose your faith and don't loose your mind. Keep it coming again and again because if it doesn't stop us dead in our tracks we will go on and on forever. I saw a girl get knocked down today and as I raged at the driver and helped her off the ground I started to think a million miles an hour about things and how things don't really matter unless someone looses an arm or dies. Get over it.

Take this chap. Fuck me what a legend. Nothing to complain about, nothing to worry about except a fire or wood worm but his varnished exterior prevents that. He helped me shoot one of the next big things to come out of England and in fact lives in their lab, Breton you lads are in for a future treat. Keep up the hard work.

Say It... "I'm Angry And I'm Not Going To Take It Any More!"

As I get called back to the motherland to show some new work I think of how much things progressed since I left. I also feel grateful as I still refer to the motherland as being the first place I was inspired and realised what was out there past the Ocean and rolling hills (it has taken me a while to realise how important). No matter what I say Ireland has played the biggest part in my adventure and I touch on the nostalgic moments far too often to let it go unnoticed and unregarded. Good work or not, I want to show her what I have learned and how I have grown into something even I couldn't mold by my self. The natural development of a grown mans aesthetic and point of view that has changed allot over the 6 (ish) years baffles me again and again.

If only my spelling had improved, thank goodness for spell check.

One Day Like This

Perfect mantra on a day like today. Stuck indoors for a small bit while getting stuff done doesn't mean the L.A. weather isn't making me happy. Sun shining and good people all around, I felt a mantra was in order. Allot of fun to be had here but also an inspiring place to bring back some ideas to London. A recognition and re ignition was in order and it has arrived. Full steam ahead.

Streets Of Fire - Keep the 80's in the 80's

Film in the 80's had a certain exaggerated drama in acting I miss dearly. One liners to beat the band and costume wise, well... Talks for its self. It has taken me 20 years to get my head around that era but now I'm getting excited about the old action films. I'm learning to appreciate the decade of shoulder pads and violent high heels. Not to be recreated on the streets of Shoreditch, looks stupid.

THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE By William Butler Yeats

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a-glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

Crazy...

Thinking of a treatment for a video that means allot to me at the moment. Emotion and felling are rife in the song I need to make the visuals for. I find it hard as I know it needs to come from the heart and also from the soul.... I return to the question of weather it is important to make this up or speak from inside. I've been pushing it away for some time now. Longer than I though,t but will I restrain it for a bit longer? Running the risk of loosing it for ever.

Mistake...

Making mistakes again I see. Make amends but not too sure how to approach it. Take me far away, far far away to somewhere I have been meaning to go since I got lost. Losing it once more but if I fix it, it might be for the best, for the future and for the love of life. Maybe I wont be allowed back in? Take me home, please take me home.


When Will The Party End?

Good god, another blurry night to be had at the Red Gallery Shoreditch. Bare Bones and Le Gun not content with 2 rammed nights of booze and music there is another one on the way in the form of an artist Signing and farewell to the exhebition. All the crew will be there to sign away their weirs and escalate the value of EVERYTHING, so get down there and buy stuff. These people are one more show away from mega stars, cash in! Support! Support! Support! Support! Support! Support!

Point Me At The Sky...

Point me at the sky and send me off for a while. It shouldn't be like this and I think the trip I'm going on is going to be surprisingly hard. Frustrating and unbelievable the things we do and feel are uncontrollable. Like a slow song with a chaotic chorus it mirrors life more that you know. Take me away again.

I Had Allot of Fun.

With a Walkman, skateboard and my friends. Causing trouble but listening to the future and finding things to do.  Suddenly I find my self in the same situation as an adult. Having fun once more and not really worrying too much. Almost 2 decades later and I seem to have come full circle but bringing allot more to the table. Fuck knows what it means but it's certainly a good thing.

"Porn Hurts Everyone"


Driving 6000 miles in three weeks isn’t an incredibly easy trip, even when planned two years in advance. We slept in tents and spent 70% of the time in the cab of the oversized truck we borrowed from fellow traveler Ed Pecis (James’s Dad, who resides in Weed, California). Regardless, we were always smiling and had one of the best adventures of our lives. I guess this project was a selfish exploration and introduction to a continent I love so dearly but didn’t really know. Before leaving I knew I wanted to find something to concentrate on and document – Christianity was one and the other was the bonding father and son, Ed and James, were taking on after the death of Ed’s father a year previously. Subtly touching on both, by way of it being there all the time, the photos took a course of their own due to the organic approach we took to the adventure.
The trip is about freedom in an isolated America. The idea of summer breaks, drinking beers, diving off rocks by small towns was everything I had hoped for. I got to meet a lot of different kids at campsites, riverbanks and in fairs from California to Idaho. Without using any form of itinerary other than a rough direction and what Ed recommended, anything discovered along the way seemed to be a bonus and intrigued me even more. The feeling of luck when meeting an interesting group of kids or random preacher who just happened to be there at the same time was second to none. Serendipity was a word thrown around a lot. The Christian element isn’t obvious in the work but it was constantly there, not always visual. In a way everything reverted to the fear of God and almost everything was labeled Christian, from all the bands in the Boise state fair to the 'Porn Hurts Everyone' sign in the yard opposite an adult store in Newport, California. Completely observational and not at all critical, I realised the importance of belief and opinion in small towns and rural America. There are some influenced opinions in USA for sure, but the people I came across were inspiring and craved to know about us and from where we had come. Their lust for information outside of the United States was intense, I just hope they get to do what they dream of. We just did.

James Pecis And The Hard Graft That Is Hair

The man put up with me for 3 weeks in the most epic journey in and around North West America with no mention of work. I know he is big time, but never knew how much work is involved. James Pecis is one of the busiest guys in his medium and most definitely one of the best. He creates with ease and the fact he compares well to a guru, he manages to capture the hearts of everyone who encounter him.

James is an artist and when he has two seconds to him self he makes perfect little art books and his Christmas cards are second to none. Massive gun collections and bathing in baths full of fruit are common place with in his quirky slightly strange mind.

This video shows us how much fun he and his team can have on an incredably complex and hectic journey over Fashion month. Planes, trains and automobiles ensue his life, he loves it and makes it fun for everyone.

Watch and see how it is done.

Ryann Bosetti -You get it.


There was a night, near the end, when I had plucked one last wilted beer from the leaking old ice chest, and wandered over to a lone picnic table.  It was in the Eastern Oregon desert and we had decided to spend the night sleeping under the fiery starlight, in a field that felt like an ancient ritual ground, if you overlooked the RV park that had tastefully settled on it’s perimeter.

The sky was lavender and silver, all streaked out to-gether, those two, and O this ungodly warm wind was blowing the sun away, wrapping itself all over our road-seasoned skin, it felt holy in the strangest sense.  I felt like my soul was going to shrapnel itself out of it’s shell, so I left the boys at the fire and made my way through the brown grass to this Table.  It looked exactly like an altar, to me.  I laid down on it and let the previous two weeks fill up my casing, really let them flood the space, and as I did this I looked up and there was the moon, hanging a few inches from my nose, had appeared as though summoned.  It was the most benevolent moon I’d ever lain under, it felt like all the strong and true parts of life in one moonrise.  It shepherded me through my processing of topics like being in love with all 3 of my motley-crew camping troupe members, reflecting on the baby coyote voice that was pealing in and out in the smoky air, wondering if I ever actually needed to put on a clean pair of jeans again, these smelled liked campfire and gas station coffee and boys and the ocean, and teenage hearts at the river in Nampa.  This, along with the warm stout I had half-finished, inspired a song (undoubtedly a feat of composition) which I decided to perform for my all-loving moon.  She did not judge, as to be expected, and I swung my heels happily the whole time.  That night I dreamed of a world-sized water park, where each of us had our own tidal wave and the wave never broke.

We finished our expedition the next day and it fractured each of our hearts, just a few cracks each, nothing deadly but we felt it like kittens when the milk runs out.  For a few weeks we were buoyant souls, free to point on a map and just GO, no rules except never run out of whiskey and maybe have something in mind for dinner before you get there.  Beautiful kids making out in parking lots and wandering on dirt roads in the middle of nowhere became our answer to everything, our living examples of perfection, a league of adolescent Buddhas, and we followed them for hours with our eyes and feet, feeling grateful and like we wanted to learn everything we could from them before they went home to their invisible parents.

This was the Niall O’Brien-led road expedition into the great small-town American young-wonderlands.  Alexander McQueen had hired Niall to shoot their collection as he saw fit, in this setting, (my job was to communicate with the teenagers) and so we rode in this pickup truck for days and days and we found ourselves falling into a very beautiful crevice in which time stops, all light is gold-hued and bees buzz extra loud.  The picnic table was my resting place so many times, and thank god somehow this characteristically strange truth worked it’s way into the photo-tale.

Niall leaves melted minds and hearts in his wake, his reverence for his subject is unrivaled, his hands and heart are blessed and gilded and we’ll only see more and more of his blessing, in our collective human future, and for this we can rest gratefully.

Allot On But I'm Still Alive

Loving the thrill of the chase at the moment and as it makes my head clear and at the same time relaxed or at least at ease and confident, I cant help but feel energized and inspired again. I expect the excitement is close to the experience you get on a roller coaster. I've never been on one but the idea of pure fun, excitement and fear sums up these days. Suddenly things make sense and all the bollox that might have been negative in any way seem to be working out as the best thing in the world. The new company I keep has driven me 10 fold and I no longer feel guilty for working hard. Contemplating change isn't on the cards for me, I don't want to as it seems to have gotten me this far and I'm still alive.
