Into the Vortex

radiosoulwax1.jpg

I’m surprised this has managed to evade my attention for the past eight years but better late than never. Into the Vortex is an hour-long music mix by Radio Soulwax whose visuals are one answer to the question of how best to illustrate a diverse playlist, if illustrate you must. The solution, directed by Wim […]

Self Preservation (1970–77), a collage by Penny Slinger from the series An Exorcism. • RIP John Calder, one of the most important British publishers of the last century whose death was acknowledged in the Washington Post (and in the Telegraph, a paper that would have given him no support during his censorship battles) but at […]

Dune: some French connections

landi.jpg

French poster by Michel Landi for the ill-fated Jodorowsky film. There’s more to French music than Air and Daft Punk, and there’s more to cosmic French music than Magma, although you wouldn’t always know it to read Anglophone music journalists.

Philippe Druillet album covers

druillet1.jpg

Docteur Faust (1971) by Igor Wakhévitch. Philippe Druillet: album cover artist. As with John Martin, I’m surprised there aren’t more examples. Once again, Discogs.com proves incomplete so I’ve added a couple more including the first on this list, Docteur Faust. If you know of any others, please leave a comment. Igor Wakhévitch’s berserk masterpiece is […]

Winter music

nordfjord.jpg

Kjendalskronebrae, Nordfjord, Norway (c. 1900). From the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division via Wood s Lot. Are you suffering list fatigue yet? I certainly have been, especially from the apparently endless “best ___ of the decade” catalogues which would have you believe that the significant cultural products of the past ten years have […]
