I Tried to Give Up Drinking with Guitars instead of God.

POSTED BY VICTORIA - April 18

Artist Ross Sinclair, releases his debut Album - and it’s a corker!

Since 1990 Sinclair has worked as an artist, showing all over the world working in various galleries and museums, making hundreds of exhibitions at home and abroad, however he was once a member of The Soup Dragons, back in the 1980's.
Now he has made a new record, I Tried to Give Up Drinking with Guitars instead of God, his first proper album, since ‘This is our Art’, the first Soup Dragons album in 1988 and the first where he has written, performed and recorded all the material himself. This could be a contender for two records – the longest span of time between albums (25 years) and the oldest geezer to have a debut solo album (46 years)!! Check it out.

Sculpture of Cathy de Monchaux

POSTED BY PAUL - April 16

Cathy De Monchaux

Her sculptures use materials such as glass, paper, metal and leather. They frequently juxtapose seductive soft elements, often with strongly sexual overtones, with harder materials, often spiky or in some way appearing to constrain the softer parts, resulting in work which is both sensual and threatening.
