Electric Crazyland Xmas!!!

Dear Friends! I have had a truly incredible show at the lovely St Leonard Pub! It’s been an amazing run, with so many sales – I have nearly run out of stock! Seriously! I sold 3 light boxes – including the very first one I did with God’s Own Junkyard – the Electric Crazyland Lady Light! And I am down to a handful of my silk screen editions! It’s been a huge success! But even more than the financial rewards, getting to know the owners – Phil & Chris – and all the friendly locals, has been so wonderful! So I decided to have another soiree to celebrate the holidays! I’m going to have a few new pieces up, plus myself and the ultra-cool Jo Perfect will be playing sonic sounds for your listening pleasure, there will be a raffle with a chance to win a Grande Dame original, and – OMG – I am going to do something I have not done in 6 years – Brace yourselves — I am going to perform live! WHAAT??? That’s right! Myself and my writing partner & keyboard virtuoso – Petar Zivkovic (King of Shag) – will be doing a little lounge act. So, mark your dates for this rare and special occasion! Thurs Dec 7th at The St Leonard Pub, 16-18 London Road, 7-11! Click here or pic for more info. Woo! More Soon! oxo GD

ELECTRIC CRAZYLAND – TONIGHT!


Tonight is the night! I can’t believe it! Nearly got it all together! Just going down in a bit to fix a couple of things and hang the flat screen telly. I was just going to have a projector on the night showing visuals, but then it hit me – no – get a flat screen tv and have all the animations on a USB stick and play it throughout the duration of the show. The animation thing is so integral to my working process. In fact you will see many of the works I have in frames moving in the videos – it’s how I roll!

Here’s a few sneak peak pix. Big thanx to Oliver Crowther, Allen Clarke, & Jo Perfect for the hanging help!

How bout them lightboxes eh? Rad! So so so pleased! They really work in that space so well! Yay! Anyhoo, the other day I thought I would make a little ad for my iphone app to play in between the videos. Of course my app is the same name as the show – I kinda name every thing Electric Crazyland, it just kinda fits my lifestyle ya know? Ha! Anyhoo, it was just meant to be a lil visual addition for my show, but then I thought “why not upload it to Facebook? But then realised – it’s a minute long – I gotta have a sound track! I dug around my folders looking for old jam/ riffs – and then I found my old Soho Radio Theme Song of the same name – Electric Crazyland! I threw it in at the last minute – and it just happened to be the same length and the images change on the beat! Total accident – meant to be OBVS! So turn it up & enjoy! And if you are free tonight & in the East Sussex area – pop in and experience my colourful Electric Crazyland vibes! Ok ciao for now! Toodles oxo GD
