    not sure about that, but burk'n'ead band half man half biscuit wrote a song about them; it's a satirical take on merchandising; if you lookaround google you may get some interpretations on the lyrics that strive to be insightful, meaningful even, but if you listen to it, its a pi**take

    Ahhh, I knew I recognised 'Joy Division Oven Gloves'.

    Although I'm reasonably familiar with HMHB (via the days of John Peel) I don't think I've made it through one of their albums in one sitting yet. They've recorded some great tunes to whistle along to, but I find you have to be careful as they can become persistent earworms. I'm thinking 'Deep House Victims Minibus Appeal' - "Said the public sector leader, At the pre-launch breakfast briefing, Get your cheque books out..." (I'm humming it just writing this!)

    Yes, inside pockets!



    It's been pretty quiet for me since Christmas. I had the flu which was horrible and wiped me out for a while. Anyway as usual I've got plenty of ideas and projects waiting on the drawing board.

    Something I keep returning back to every few years is tessellating patterns, particularly in the style of the dutch graphic artists, M.C. Escher. Recently I came across this website (link below) which is brilliant and definitely worth exploring. Anyone who has tried to manually draw and perfectly align these type of interlocking shapes will appreciate how it works.
