Grande Dame HQ Newz

collage I am the lamest blogger in the world! Ugh! What can I say? At the mo I am in total machine mode and find it easier to just create things than have to use words to explain myself! All systems are go on the upcoming show at Ink- D Gallery in Brighton on Oct 30th. Above is a little collage I made of the work I produced so far. Again I am making individual pieces for each track on the album. I have 13 tracks, so far I have 9 pieces done… 4 More to go! Yay! Pretty happy so far with the way everything is turning out!
MyVoodooOnYou-GrandeDame 3 pieces are even framed! Above is the finished piece for my track – My Voodoo On You. Silk Screen with 24CT Gold Overlay, Hand Coloured with Acrylic & Copic Inks. Even the frame is Gilded! That’s how I roll tho, if you’re gonna do it – GO ALL THE WAY! It’s a great feeling when you have an idea in your head and you make it & it comes out the way you envisaged! So Result!
tripwebmovieposter2 In other news, I am happy to report that I have signed a contract with Spike & Mike’s Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation for them to screen The Trip & Black Leather at their screening events! Wow! They are the top of Mount Olympus as far as twisted animation is concerned. And to be in their roster of directors is such a mega MEGA honour! Yay! So nice to be recognised!
Dame & Meatraffle Sadly I have had to take a break from my Soho Radio gig. Unfortunately I just cant do everything, as much as I wish I could! Once I’m closer to having everything lined up for the show/ album release, I promise I’ll be back! If you havent heard my shoes, click the pic for the archive!

My Weekend in The Big Smoke Plus Ep 7 Up Now!

Rak Studios
Just got back from a weekend in the big smoke and it was jam packed all the way! Started my friday morning at the legendary Rak Studios in Maida Vale home to glam rock mega producer Mickie Most RIP and also my publishers – Touch Tones Music. Had a great meeting with them going over the album release plans. It was great to see their reaction to the vinyl box set & comic.
vinylspin
I had a great show this week, well I think it was. Sans guest but choice tunes if I do say so myself! I even got to play one of my own. So great to watch the turquoise record spin!
shoegasm I had a major shoegasm friday night when I went to stay with Terry de Havilland & his lovely wife Liz. It was like xmas as I got a few more pairs of shoes I designed!! So proud! They truly are stunning. Now that I am a beach bunny I live in flip flops, and find walking in heels challenging, might have to get someone to carry me around town so I can wear them out! Ha!
hiretonyfern Saturday I went to stay with my dear friends Tony & Fernando. I was pleasantly surprised to see a newly framed Hire Car print in their gorgeous flat! And my fave one too cos it’s turquoise! Awesome! They are total sweeties and I had a wonderful time in their lovely home…
Dan&MeMod Saturday evening I went to meet & interview one of my music/ art heroes – Daniel Higgs! I was super nervous before I went, and a touch during, but he was super down to earth, sweet and very approachable. The interview went great & I will include the audio in my next radio show. Later my friends joined me at his concert. It was really good. He is such a mesmerising entertainer.
I made it home Sunday just in time to meet up with my Hastings friends for some post birthday celebrations. All & all a perfect weekend! Took care of biz, had an awesome show! Saw some old friends and met some new ones! Anyhoo, Episode 7 below! Enjoy! oxo gd

Electric Crazyland Ep 7 Live Today!

photo-3
Ladies & Gents! Tune in to Soho Radio where I will be live playing golden tunes from yesteryear and tomorrow! I promise you will dig the sounds… My dad being a hi-fi dealer was also a record collector and passed that love down to me. One of our father / daughter activities was going record shopping. I was prob about 12 at the time and we were in a second hand record store in Atlanta. I saw the record on the left and told my dad he should buy it. Prob just because of the colour! Ha! But it turned out to be a solid collection of songs. This is pre fame era Ray, gritty, dirty, bluesy, but tops all the way. Well dad died in 97, I inherited his record collection and man I played it out and scratched it up to hell and back. It just sounds like crackles and fuzz now. I had wanted to play it on the show, but was worried it would sound to bad, but then lo and behold at a store practically right underneath me, I found the French Issue of the same record in mint condition with no scratches! How BRILL? Tune in today and you can hear a killer song from Georgia’s favourite son! Click the pic or here! LIVE AT 2pm! oxo GD
