Dennis Hopper – The Lost Album, Royal Academy London 26 June – 19 Oct.

Dennis Hopper earned his place in history starring in classic movies like, Apocalypse Now, Easy Rider and Blue Velvet.  His is less well-known as a Photographer and was at the eye of the storm in the turbulent decade of social and political change in the 60’s, photographing the world around him taking in hells angels and hippies, rock bands, The Civil Rights Movement, Harlem and east and west coast America.  There were some major exhibitions of his work in the 1970’s and his images paint a vivid portrait of 1960’s America.

Mazes

Mazes from the brilliant new album ‘Wooden Aquarium’…

Saw Mazes at The Shacklewell Arms in Dalston, London the other week, they were excellent drawing on songs from the new album like this one and an awesome version of ‘Bodies’ from their second LP along with some of their older songs. The venue is great with flyers pasted on the walls, friendly barstaff and a decent sound system.  There’s bands on every week in the back room and a nice vibe, overall a great night out and recommended.
