8.23

So I'm musing on the best release this year and I narrow it down to a toss up between the Animal Collective's Strawberry Jam, a strange avant garde pop/electronic hybrid (with some of the best screaming I've heard this side of Headbutt) and Jeffrey Lewis's 12 Crass Songs, a folked-up set of those early 1980s anarcho-punksters, Crass, when a friend calls round and lends me Jeffrey Lewis' back catalogue. So they are now ripped and awaiting scrutiny on my iPod this week and I decide to search for some Jeffrey Lewis stuff on YouTube and I stumble across this - an anti-folk masterpiece telling of the history of New York punk rock by the man himself. Well worth 8.23 minutes of anyones time!

Phishing bleeped

I was phished last month. Bastards. They managed to whip £50 out of my account before the Co-op noticed and cancelled my card. I only noticed when I had my card rejected ordering some train tickets online and I then checked my bank account. Luckily, my card was stopped before INDIRECT TELE SERV also tried to take a grand out of my account, that'll teach me to click on a link in an email. Anyway, the point of this entry is not to bore with tales of my financial troubles but more about the Co-op's complete lack of knowledge of electronic music. On phoning my bank after checking my account, and agreeing money had been stolen, my customer service operator asked if, other than the unknown payment to INDIRECT TELE SERV, whether Warp Records was a genuine company! (I'm a fairly regular customer of Bleep, Warp's download store). Fine I thought, this guy's not into Big Dada releases, fair enough. But then when he put me through to their fraud department they asked me exactly the same question. Then, today, I got a form to fill in from the Co-op and again, it asked me if money going out of my account to Warp Records was a genuine purchase. I wouldn't mind but the Co-op are based in Manchester, a stones throw across the Peak District from Sheffield, for Cabaret Voltaire's sake!

Teaching an old Dubdog new tricks


Just finished the long due overhaul of the Dubdog website and uploaded it to my server. You'll notice a much less fussy feel, cleaner and pared back look. This is for several reasons, least of all to make it load faster as the previous site was constucted completely of images and several areas would hang in cyber space for a while before appearing. I also wanted to give a different emphasis to what Dubdog is and does now, one that is more representative of the sort of work I'm now doing and include more film and photography, while at the same time giving all work equal weight rather than having separate process headings. I've stripped some work out, put some new stuff in and dug up some old pieces that have never seen the light of virtual space. Finally, I didn't want the site to over power the work which I felt the old one was doing and there is now an aesthetic parity with Dublog. I hope that this one will last at least the couple of years the last one did before I become sick of the sight of it.

I Came, I Saw - Town Hall Galleries, Ipswich


Went to the private view of 'I Came, I Saw' last night, a cruel way to run a show me thinks - if you didn't make it into the show, and there was no way of knowing until the private view whether you had or not, you had to take your work away with you on the night! Saw some very dissapointed people carrying their work out of the door (as Jason said, this could have made an interesting art video in itself). So, I feel for those that didn't make it, especially as with some of the work chosen it was really difficult to see a link between the work and the exhibition concept (first impressions of Ipswich) although that's not to say the work wasn't good. While I like the fact the exhibition was an open submission, so anyone could submit, artist or not, I guess you'd find in any small town art scene clique that local artists will submit anything just to be seen to be in the loop and they probably measure their success against this. You do tend to see the same names again and again. You do tend to see the same work again and again as well. For this show you get the feeling that some artists looked through their portfolios in search of something to submit and there were some really tenuous links to the brief. And again, I have to agree with Jason, the more interesting pieces were those created especailly for the show and/or had a human connection. Having said that, I'm guilty of submitting old work myself (2005), but at least it did fit the brief. Shame my artist statement wasn't included (see below). Maybe the next exhibition shouldn't be open to those that call themselves artists at all because the fantastic thing about this show is that non-artists, people who have never exhibited before, get the chance to have their work displayed in the excellent Town Hall Galleries, a venue that is taking art directly to the people with it's central Ipswich location.

My absent artist statement:

"The first thing I remember seeing on a visit to Ipswich were its docks. Later, when I came to live here and discovered you could walk along the docks I became fascinated by these big bastard buildings. For a short period I worked near the docks and on a daily basis would walk past these monoliths of sheer function. I became fixated by these slabs of honesty and on learning they were going to be demolished knew that I had to record exactly how I saw these beasts. They are gone and they are missed, but here, at least, they are remembered."

March of the Modernist



I've finally been forced to use my Flickr account. I only signed up to post comments on friends' photos and would normally post my own photos here. However, I went to the absolutely inspirational Modernist masterpiece De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea recently and took so many photos that are worthy of posting that Flickr seems the only option. I tend to get shutter finger happy when visiting awe inspiring buildings. Link to my Flickr account here. Thanks Mike for the tip off about DLW.

Considerate construction

Dubdog's website is currently undergoing a major overhaul and should be relaunched before the end of the year. A combination of being sick of the sight of my site and the ever slowing of the internet made me realise Dubdog needs a bit of a rebrand to suit it's developments over the last 2 years. Announcements here soon.

ID Motions


Above: My responce to an email I recieved today.
Below: The email
..................................

Dear NO2ID Supporter,

This email is being blind-copied to everyone in our records with an
IP postcode, so you may well not be affected.

However, if you do live in Ipswich itself - or know someone who does -
we thought you would want to know that on *9th November* Ipswich Borough
Council will be asked to vote on a motion expressing opposition to the
government's ID card scheme, and instructing council officers only to
co-operate with the scheme if it would actually be illegal not to.

If you live in the Borough, it would be useful if you could contact your
Ipswich Borough Councillors to bring this motion to their attention, and
to ask them to vote in favour of opposing ID cards.

You can find out who your councillors are, and write to them quickly and
easily, using this we site:

www.writetothem.com

If you'd like to get even more involved in opposing ID cards in Ipswich,
please reply to this message, and we'll put you in touch with other
NO2ID supporters in the Ipswich area.

Best regards, and, if you can, thank you for helping,
Andrew Watson
(NO2ID East of England coordinator)

NY DigiDigitDigital



'DigiDigitDigital', a film I made in February this year and was previewed at Ipswich's Dark and Daring event in March has sidestepped a submission for the UrbanVideo Project in New York and been passed to Spark Video , again based in New York, who will screen it on October 27th. Thanks to the people at Urban for passing it on and Blake at Spark for the consideration, it's much appreciated.

Hmmmmmm!



Been meaning to upload this for a while. Not quite sure how this Public (sic) House in Lewes imagines wheelchair users are going to navigate the steps. Not caught on film (or rather, in pixels) is another small flight of steps just inside the door. Maybe all wheelchair users in Lewes have little jet packs to assist them. And to add insult to injury and then to add a bit of sheer discrimination, the sign is eye height, but of someone standing up!

Never met an environmentalist

I had the good fortune to witness a presentation to graphic design students from illustrator and graphic artist Jody Barton this week. He showed some fabulous work and was amazingly honest about his beliefs, his experiences working for clients and the realities of freelancing. One aspect of his talk caught my interest above all else when he announced that he's never met an environmentalist. Jody had recently spoken at the 'Greening Illustration and Design' conference in which he said the level of debate was pitiful. Further to this he recounted his experiences of doing a job for Greenpeace and his contacts in Greenpeace would fly off on long weekend holidays after a week of saving the planet at their work desks! This really wasn't much of a surprise as I know only too well that most people don't give a shit if it means they have to actively change their habits - I once introduced a recycling scheme at a job and while people praised the initiative and talked the talk, they were generally unwilling to walk the walk to the plastic bins to separate out their waste and just chucked everything in together in the non-recyclables bin. However, it was refreshing to read the Johnson Banks blog today. Today's post is an honest appraisal of their own efforts to be green, an intelligent case study of green issues and how graphic designers can try and do their bit and includes an interesting look at how best to communicate the green message. It's well worth a read in a time of greenwashes, green capitalism and green bandwagons.

Up to the rigs

I saw Bellowhead on Friday night in Ipswich. Only just pipped at the post by A Silver Mt Zion at Colchester Arts Centre as the best live band I've seen this year so far. They were truly fantastic - dark, stylish, brooding, dancable and very very tight, they whipped the crowd into a frenzy of traditional English folk tunes, jigs and sea shanties performed by a big band, (there were 11 of them squeezed onto a tiny stage) with a jazz horn section. I did make the mistake of, on being introduced to someone who was an ex-Morris Dancer, of stating that I wouldn't hold it against him, but I think that was the evening's only faux pas. He was a bit of a folk purist and thought Bellowhead were 'disturbing' so I'm not too bothered. Anyway, this band are highly recommended and if they are playing near you in the next few weeks on their UK tour, do yourself a favor and make sure you go and see them. Morris dancing is optional.

On a brief aside, I had reason to pass through Strood nr Rochester (in Kent near where I once lived) today and saw where I bought my first LP proper, if you discount 'Remember You're A Womble' bought with a record token when I was seven or eight. The record I bought at the tender age of 11 was Blondie's Parallel Lines and I felt so grown up buying 'adult' music. It therefore seems only fitting when I wandered into a CD Fair about an hour later in Rochester that I should buy a Blondie 'best of'. The record shop in Strood is now a newsagent.

My Face Space Book

No offence if you're not getting a reply to your request for me to be your friend. It's nothing personal. Give me a ring or email me and we'll go for a pint. Sorry, but I've cancelled my FaceBook and MySpace accounts I'm affraid. FaceBook are still forwarding requests though, so I presume there's some history of me on their archives that other FaceBookers can still see. Not that I did much with the accounts. I only got a MySpace account so I could view some photos on someone else's page. But the visual spew and brainless "thanks for the ads" and the content rich (sic)/download slow phenomenon was never gonna be my bag. I simply don't have the time to wait an age to read drivel. I can read a Ben Elton novel in the time it takes for a MySpace page to load if it's mind numbing shallowness I want. As for FaceBook, well, work colleagues are obsessed and after the umpteenth email poke from people sitting next to me all day made me question the futility of life like nothing since the last time I caught an episode of Midsomer Murders, I cancelled. But, like I said, give me a ring if you have my number, email me if you don't. It's nothing personal.

Bounce

Currently in the middle of bouncing backwards and forwards identity proposals for the eco-venture project mentioned in a previous post. It's that difficult and anxious stage where every tweek and re-think means waiting a day or two for an answer via email to see whether the client likes your ideas or not. You also spend a fair amount of time creating presentation PDFs to present your ideas clearly to clients by proxy. Thankfully, this client has some design sense but it's always disappointing to get that fantastic idea you had returned with "not sure about this, can you try xyz instead," and then on reflection you realize that the fantastic idea wasn't actually that fantastic. However, it's sometimes that pushing by the client that drives your creativity. The real buzz then comes when you're getting to the stage when you think your ideas are never going to satisfy and you're beginning to believe you are drying up and BLAM, something hits you from your not sure where and you're off in a different direction. More research, more information gathering, more trials and then another PDF gets emailed off with polite comments and the hope of all hopes that this is the one that's going to let you get your teeth into the next stage of the job. But that's the nature of beast - design is a process and processes need working through. It's exciting, it's challenging and it is also very frustrating, especially when you've a million other things going on in your head at the same time. That's it for tonight now though, enough of staring into this screen, a bottle of organic cider is calling from fridge.

Put some coffee on someone

Summer is nearly over and as usual at this time of year there's a surge of activity happening around the kennel. However, there seems to be a considerable amount more this year. So, in no particular order here's an update;
Dubdog is proud to announce it's involvement in the launch of a local eco-venture but unfortunately can not go into details at this stage but logos, letterheads, leaflets and a website are all being worked on;
Pindown is alive and kicking after a hiatus of several years and music is being scraped and spliced together and lyrics being written and there's even talk of rehearsals which will hopefully lead to several live outings.
And as the new college term starts, usually a very busy time, I'm winding down in one teaching job and gearing up for another as I switch in early October to lecturing on a Graphic Design degree course at the UK's newest academic centre, University Campus Suffolk.
More news and updates of all this when I stop panting and have a chance to draw breath.

Presenting Mr T Thug



Two more Bum Gravy tracks from the Kings Cross Water Rats gig, circa 1994, are now available on YouTube plus some White Slug electronica with visuals from Ric8rd, aka Mr Technical Thug. Click on video above for (in my opinion) his best work so far or here for other work in Mr Thug's catalogue. White Slug begat industrial/metalers Optimum Wound Profile for a while, (well four LPs worth). White Slug's Jason is now working with myself under the guise of Pindown. Mr Thug, the other half of White Slug has left these shores (UK) and is currently working on visuals to be displayed behind Pindown on stage so Jason and I don't have to dance!

Mr Thug also remixed the music for Pindown's Blood Brand. The video for Blood Brand by Dubdog can be seen here.

Lastly, Pindown are currently working on new material, the first since their 2004 release Democracy In Action, and are planning live outings in the near future for which Mr Thug's visuals should get an outing.

Virtually invisible

Apologies to anyone trying to reach Dubdog Design's main website at the moment but it appears to have vanished in www mist. I'm trying to get this sorted by my host, Easily. It appears to have been down all day today and possibly longer. Last time I accessed it was on Wednesday this week. If it isn't up again soon I'll be changing my host.

Thanks to Mr Technical Thug you can now view more Bum Gravy (you lucky, lucky people) live at The Water Rats Club, Kings Cross, London circa 1994 on YouTube. The majority of the set is available in case you have a serious amount of time to waste and a desire to hear/watch mid 90s suburban industrial grunge. Rough history of Bum Gravy on previous post here.

ICCARS website launch

Despite a dodgy stomach and unexplained limp (don't ask), I attended the ICCARS website launch tonight keeping one eye on the toilet and the other on the buffet. A host of local charity workers, councilors, solicitors and a judge gathered in Grafton House, Ipswich Borough Council's new HQ and heard about ICCARS work in advising and representing those facing possession hearings at Ipswich County Court before witnessing a tour of the website. Dubdog Design is proud to have been involved in this project and helping to support ICCARS work in trying to prevent homelessness in Ipswich and surrounding villages.


Anthony Wooding, ICCARS Chair and Kerseys solicitor introduces ICCARS.


Claire Tolliday, ICCARS secretary and Suffolk County Council's Financial Inclusion & Advice Service manager takes the audience for a tour of the website.

Carbon paw print


A new public service carbon footprint calculating website has been launched. It looks pretty good (except, if you're using a Mac, it is one of those really annoying sites that changes the size of your browser to fill your desktop), is easy to navigate and should hopefully attract many people to find out their footprints. Calculate your footprint here. The site also offers some good (and some misleading) advice while missing some very important points. Political hot potatoes even.

So how did Dubdog mansions fair? Pretty good actually. Just below average although we did claim to have double glazing throughout when only half the kennel windows have been changed (good locally made wooden windows are expensive so it's an ongoing project). I have a feeling Dubdog's carbon paw print would have been lower if some obvious questions had been asked. The site DOES NOT cover recycling at all!!!! We recycle pretty much everything that is recyclable, including food waste going on the compost heap instead of in a landfill site. The emission of toxic gasses from landfill sites have been linked to birth defects for anyone unfortunate enough to live within 2kms of a site (which actually is 80% of us)!
The site also tries to convince Dubdog that it needs a dishwasher because one fully loaded dishwasher is more water efficient than lots of bowls of hot water. Fine, if only it would take into account how much water a bath wastes which it doesn't mention at all! And it's not just about heating the water, it's also about the energy hungry process of cleaning water.
But, and it's a big BUT, the biggest bug bear I have is the complete lack of questioning dietary habits. Firstly, nothing about food miles or organic food production. Secondly it doesn't even scratch the vegetarian itch. The amount of methane cows fart into the atmosphere is adding to climate change dramatically. Not to mention the harmful process of meat production when you take into account the agro-chemicals that go into producing grain for cattle to eat. Worse even when you consider that "...only a small fraction of the calories consumed by farmed animals are actually converted into the meat that people eat..." (source) which means why bother eating meat in the first place, eat what the cows eat, it's more efficient.
Looks like Dubdog's 20 years of being a vegetarian counts for nothing. Ho hum. Hotdog anyone?

Thanks Tone, it's been a blast!

10 years ago was a different time.
I sometimes think we forget and need a little time to reflect on the distance we've travelled.
Just think.
There was war then.
There were childen living in poverty, (as if children in poverty was any worse than any other kind.)
You wouldn't believe the tribal wars in god forsaken far off lands.
How we hated those, back in the day.
There were ultra rich and there were ultra poor.
There were multinationals who ignored human rights.
There were people sleeping in shop doorways and people begging on the streets.
Tch. I know, its hard to remember such a time.
There was intolerance toward people of physical or economic persecution coming to this land.
There was distrust of our own youth. Our own youth! Can you imagine that?
There was a lack of respect shown towards older generations.
Can. You. Believe. That?
There was pollution and environmental disaster looming. How we worried about that.
There were nuclear weapons and there was terrorism.
There were poor schools and poor hospitals with poor people in them. Poor people! Jees!
There was a low paid underclass who cleaned rich peoples houses or worked in those poor hospitals.
There was even, I kid you not, distrust of politicians. We all blamed voter apathy, remember?
Now get this, there were actually shallow, vacuous celebrities. Huh.
Backward thinking was, like, so in vogue. No, more than that, I'd go as far as to say it was the zeitgeist.
Who'd have thought we could have come so far in ten years?
Thank God for now!
Fairwell Tony, it's been a blast.

7 legs



This is Gerty and Gladys, 2 new arrivals at the Dubdog abode seen on a rare visit to the big outdoors i.e. our backgarden. Sisters of about 8 years, they've settled in well and are dominating our existing 2 cats and 1 dog. Gerty has only three legs, having lost one of her back ones in a RTA last year. She has quickly become the studio cat, taking over my computer chair and moaning at every design cliché I make. I might have to change the name of the studio to Dubcat at this rate.
