The idea of us starting all this 0282-related balderdash was:
A - To have a good piss about,
B - to act as a conduit to help expose the multifarious talents of local folk and their creative pals thus creating a peer-support network for such outlets,
C - to manufacture a shop window of sorts to offer an opportunity for various record labels, publishers, promoters, commercially minded twats etc etc, to offer local folks some possibility of exposing their work to a wider audience thus affording the evasive possibility of one day (God forbid) said artists actually receiving some element of recognition and financial recompense for whatever it is they do,
D - to have a good piss about.
Whether the answer be any or all, We're putting this event together where we're gonna be giving art away and in a nutshell we're looking for donations from our creative pals such as your good selves.
It doesn't have to be an exclusive work - A simple copy of anything you've created previously that you feel happy with us including would be more than amazing.
So far folks have pledged photographs, paintings, screen prints, mix tapes, and CDRs containing musical production.
This is absolutely NOT about devaluing people's work by giving it away - It's about trying to help create an awareness of the vast amount of incredible stuff that is out there, and to try and increase accessibility and attempt to help demystify preconceptions around the old adages of what art is and how it can enrich lives by giving folks an opportunity to own.
While the conditions of our event prevent us from paying cash-money for any donations, what we can offer is an item from our paltry back-catalogue in exchange should you be remotely interested.
The event is due to take place in May so we're looking for responses ASAP please.
Feel free to refuse input and call us a set of cheeky gets. It won't be the first time..
And if that wasn't enough to get you all dizzy with excitement, our latest night is this Saturday over at the amazing 3WM in that there Todmorden. Call it anti-digging. Call it an appreciation of the less esoteric tunes out there, regardless of how ace they are. Call it whatever a want. We call it 'Lazy Gets'....
