The Picture Rooms Grand Opening

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

Yo, got a few canvases on show in Dublin’s newest and bestest gallery, The Picture Rooms. The idea behind this gallery is that nobody should be priced out of having some nice art on their walls, so the price range is €1 – €120. There’s some whopper work on the walls, including photography, prints and canvases, so drop down and check it out. It’s on Wellington Quay, beside the Working Mans Club, is open 11am-7pm weekdays and 10am-6pm on the weekends. This Saturday we’re having a little launch there, running from 7-10pm.

Kansas City Prophets feat. Linton Kwesi Johnson – ‘Cams’ video

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Check it: video for ‘Cams’ from !Kaboogie’s latest record. Awesome stepper of a tune with some gargantuan bass, featuring the poetry of Linton Kwesi Johnson. This video was started by Stormfield of Combat Recordings fame a few weeks before the riots kicked off in London: the timing of this, LKJ’s words and the concept of the ‘Defiance EP’ are all a bit eerie. Big up to Stormfield for this.

If yr looking for the vinyl, you can pick it up in Spindizzy and All City Records in Dublin, as well as Juno, Red Eye, Decks.de and Piccadilly Records online. Samples below:
