  1. Lido

    Plymouth Hoe’s magic Art Deco Lido ‘Tinside’ showed up here last month so Janner props to Darren Hayman’s new Lido CD (on Clay Pipe Music who put out the very great Tyneham House CD last year) which has a track called Tinside. You can hear the whole thing here. Even better bag yourself the artfully packaged CD. Remember kids, it’s open air or saltwater else it’s nothing at all!

  2. the Devil’s Quoits

    The reconstruction of the Devil’s Quoits, a stone circle and henge at Stanton Harcourt, Oxfordshire. Improbably located between a landfill site, a lake formed by gravel extraction pit and a recycling centre (the rural idyll of middle England or wot?), the site is pretty damn vibey. Can’t remember ever seeing so many damselfies in one place either. Makes ya think prehistoric reconstructions are the way forward, yeah?

     

  3. Nowhere Island: Now Here Is Land

    Alex Hartley/Situations’ intriguing and excellent Nowhere Island project is travelling around the SW coast until September. Here it is, moored in Plymouth Sound on Thursday, with the embassy parked up on Jennycliff. Yeah, we’ve become citizens and have offered our own suggestions for the constitution. We’ll probably be back there for the Bristol leg next month too. Hopefully there will be less stinking, rotting seaweed than there was on Jennycliff Beach!). Check it out here.

  4. Tinside

    Tinside saltwater lido on Plymouth Hoe. The best swimming pool in the universe. And maybe the coldest water too.

  5. Hampton stone circle

    Hampton stone circle, Dorset. OOOOOOFFFFF!

  6. Drizzlecombe

    Drizzlecombe, Dartmoor. Man it’s good to be back on the moor.

  7. Stonehenge Fire Garden 2

  8. Stonehenge Fire Garden

    Compagnie Carabosse’s Stonehenge Fire Garden 11th July 2012, part of the Salisbury International Arts Festival. Woh! Note ludicrously rare photograph of rain-free sky. Will puking in hedge not shown.

  10. Lushfest

    We had to blow out the Lushfest show yesterday cos our van and the organisers’ gear buggy couldn’t make it through the lake of mud leading to the stage. Without our amps we are nothing. It was gonna be the first show using our new Hiwatt stack too. Damn. Cue sexy pic:
