Girl Band - Lawman

Seduced and Abandoned

This is not the noted 1964 Italian feature directed by Pietro Germi, about the irresistible little village virgin, Agnese (Stefania Sandrelli) and her impulsive suitor Peppino (Aldo Puglisi) – a delirious Italian comedy, in the guise of late Neo-Realism perhaps, although maybe I’ll do a review of th...

Maria Lassnig 1920-2014

A great underrated rebel and nomad of a painter, gone at the tender age of 94. Here's a perfunctory obit on Artforum. Here she is in a cheerful moment . Unfortunately the closest I got to writing about her was her inclusion in the Sie. Selbst. Nackt. show at Bremen last year. This was her contributi...

Eastlink - Spring Street

Obscure Melbourne band who may or may not have broken up – but who have one single on In The Red – Spring Street - and promised an album in February that has still to materialise. The single has a pleasant shuffling quality. According to the In The Red blurb ‘Spring Street’ denotes Victoria’s state ...

It’s quite ...

A strange meeting here of ancient 60s psychedelic rocker and young thrash/noise trio – all I think from Minneapolis or at least Minnesota.
