We, as in the fine people at Stockmans, Nico Dockx, Gerard Herman, Jef Cuypers, and myself, have been working our punjabby's off to finish a book in time for the grand opening of 'My Niece's Pierced Knees'. The book is the result of a year long daily interview Nico dockx did with me. 'My Niece's Pierced Knees' is opening on October 27th at Middelheim Museum!
The invite for this exhibition is the 250th release of Ultra Eczema: a invite card single of sorts. You can listen to the audio the great Uncle Jim recorded for it HERE if you did not find one in your mailbox. If you are one of the next 40 folks that order something on the Ultra Eczema website, you will anyway receive a physical copy as well! Other new releases will be online today or tomorrow!!
On Saturday Ultra Eczema will be at the Antwerp Academy's bookfair all day, with mainly new records! Come say hi, or don't, and watch me eat all those great broodjes from the piepers.
Although it may look like that, Pinkie Bowtie has not been sleeping either! Next week, between October 17 and 20, Pinkie is injecting the PAPIRIPAR festival in Hamburg with fluids it can't pronounce in German. I already am a Hamburger, and i have a dream! If you would like to get a No choice Tattoo in Hamburg, please get in touch.
Stine Janvin will have a new record out on PAN in November. Here's a video already that Erik Ferguson has made. I loved Stine's LP on Pica Disk, and am very excited to hear her new work! Also, her and Agnes Hvizdalek are in my humble opinion the two best vocal live performers. I'm quite stoked to see Agnes perform in the Pinkie Bowtie frame of Papiripar Festival!
