Yes Dan Hillier! This amination is excellence! And big ups to Losers + Riz MC & Envy – Riz, you’re big in the club (sandwich) bro! Love it.

Dan did the art, and Tom Werber did the animationing and directerizing. And they did it proper. The boss track ‘Flush’ is out on 5th April on Distiller Records… and Dan has just released a set of prints which I suggest you buy before you spend it.

Out of the Shadow – Part 2

thesoundofthewestway_1976

‘When I think of the punk years, I always think of one particular spot, just at the point where the elevated Westway diverges from Harrow Road and pursues the line of the Hammersmith and City tube tracks to Westbourne Park Station. From the end of 1976, one of the stanchions holding up the Westway was emblazoned with large graffiti which said simply, ‘The Clash’. When first sprayed the graffiti laid a psychic boundary marker for the group – This was their manor, this was how they saw London.’ Jon Savage ‘Punk London’ Evening Standard 1991

‘All across the town, all across the night, everybody’s driving with full head lights, black or white turn it on face the new religion, everybody’s sitting round watching television, London’s burning with boredom now, London’s burning dial 999, Up and down the Westway, in and out the lights, what a great traffic system, it’s so bright, I can’t think of a better way to spend the night than speeding around underneath the yellow lights.’ The Clash ‘London’s Burning’ 1976

More rocking n rolling on the way… don’t touch that dial!
