Knuckles

So the deadline looms for all the sideshows to be loaded into the shipping container for its two month trip by sea to Japan. Standing at 4.9m ‘Knuckle Sandwich’ is the sister High Striker for last years  7.5m ‘Old Boney’. The steel framework is still to be attached to the painted facade as is the bell and mechanism. Its going to be a long hard week with the kids striker still to be finished.  Fuji Rock her we come!

Knuckle Sandwich

Below is the new middle sized high striker, ‘Knuckle Sandwich’
the empty scrolls will have the usual rating of strengths from loser to hero. Standing at 4.9m its the little sister of last years 7.3m ‘Old Boney’ . Together with ‘Dem Dancing Bones’ all three will form ‘The Bone Yard’ the ultimate test of strength. check out ‘Old Boney’ or here

New High Striker

Loads happening this month. Works underway for two new High Strikers (test your strength machines) for Fuji Rock Festival in July….I know ages away, but the shipping container leaves mid May so better get a wiggle on. Above is the new Kids striker ‘Dancing Bones’ at 3m high it may be a little easier for our littlest hammer swingers to ring the bell. ‘The Knuckle Sandwich’ the sister to the 7.5m Old boney come in at a modest 5m. Hopefully you’ll see them all together at Glastonbury 2013, look out for the ‘Bone yard high strikers’ at a festival near you!

Slag

Slag opens tonight, an anti Valentine show with Carrie Reichardt at the wheel, backed by various Mutoid associates , Nick Reynolds et al. The event will be held at Carrie Reichardt’s studios ……. 199 Acton Lane, Chiswick W4 5DA.
If you didn’t make it down before Christmas…You got to see this shop! Mental nick-nacks sit next to twisted dolls in an anarchist shop in… Chiswick, yes, I know, trust me its a weird afternoon out with a lot of affordable stuff for sale. Heres a sample of what the press said: ” Jesus christ what a whopper of a shop” Daily Mail on Sunday. ” Fuck me i couldn’t believe the bargains” The Sunday Times.

Unfairground update

Just updated the Unfairground website, with pics and new sections about the venues in the unfairground you can check it out here www.unfairground.org

Old Boney (under construction)

Well i have been banging on and on about this unfairground stricker for some time without revealing much about how it will look. Construction’s going well and at last i have something to show you.
This is just the top section, the whole thing stands over 6 meters tall, successful rings on the bell get Dotmaster prizes, original works, hand made voodoo dolls and some other surprizes. Its bloody big and bloody hard to win so its fits right in at the Unfairground at this years Glastonbury.

You do that Voodoo

So i’ve been fairly tight lipped about Glastonbury, but the bugger is in full effect this month. Unfairground returns, the sideshows of last year are being added to with a monster 25′ Striker (test your strength machine). Don’t want to show too much at the moment, but it has a voodoo skeleton theme. Just been making some  prototypes for the prizes, featured below are Mark I, Mark II and Mark III.

Still not there…..its going to take a few more trials but you kinda get the nasty idea. Hand sticked evil dolls, may even go for a few different designs. Lets hope the weather is as good as last year, the Unfairground looks like its set to go from strength to strength.

Dark Twat

The legendary dark twat, world tours, thousands of venues but only heard by a  few. The song remains……

Studio shots

The light came through the window and illuminated the usual clutter, but somehow made it look beautiful.
