Jowe Head & The Demi-Monde, live in Camden Town, Friday 28th November

We’ll be playing some grand new tunes from a new project: “Ars Longa, Vita Brevis”, a set of songs about some remarkable artists, namely: Hannah Hoch, Kurt Schwitters, Josef Beuys, Kurt Schwitters, Louise Bourgeois. Expect a good dose of Theremin, analogue synth, bowed saw, cello, and a couple of duets between the divine Catherine Gerbrands and myself.  Also in the line-up:  Tim Bowen (cello), and Ravi Low-Beer (drums).

New paintings from spring 2014

Two paintings inspired by time spent in Berlin in August 2013.  “Bronze Snake”  derived form a painting I saw in an old church, which referred to an Old Testament passage in The Book of Numbers, about God getting so fed up with his Chosen People, that he disowned them and abandoned them to worshiping a metallic serpent.   “An Apple and an Egg” refers to a conversation that I had with German friends; one of them, Ruth, came from Bavaria.  she told me that she remembered a time when the cost of living was more affordable:  the price of an apple and an egg.

Mid-summer invocation at Hundred Years Gallery, 22June 2014

With my band The Demi-Monde, I led a procession and invocation to the sun outside Hundred Years Gallery, at the recent solstice weekend, followed by a concert inside the gallery.  I had made a totem-pole sculpture, and wrote a poem especially for the occasion: “Long Live the Sun”, which we used in the procession.   In the concert, we also performed another new piece called “King of the Corn”, based on the traditional song “John Barleycorn Must Die”.

Guest performers were Rotten Bliss (aka: cellist / vocalist Jasmine Pender)  and Quimper, an electronic duo.                                       All photos by Mary Lemley
