Wait, Another New Order post punk flavoured exhibition? Wow London, you’re really spoiling me!

New Order: Art, Product, Image 1976-1985 explores the post punk and beyond years of British art, music and design. (more…)

Use Hearing Protection: FAC 1 – 50 / 40‘ at Chelsea Space (next to Tate Britain) is curated by Jon Savage and Mat Bancroft and explores the audio visual work of the legendary Factory Records from 1978 to 1982. (more…)
