New book!

Those who know me know I'm pretty excited about this. Hot off the press (pub date is actually June 1) from the UK, Shadowplayers by James Nice (LTM records founder, etc.) seeks to be the definitive word on the rise and fall of Factory Records. And if Simon Reynolds and Jon Savage both have good things to say about it, you know that's a good sign. Can't wait to start it soon.

Don't Forget to check out the Shepard Fairey show at Deitch Projects

I recently got a chance to check out the Fairey's 'ad' for his new show at Deitch Projects.

This mural is located at Houston and Bowery. The show at Deitch Projects is their FINAL show and it's up until May 29, so hurry and see it now. Fairey is even crediting the original sources for the images he used (bravo!). Anyway, good stuff. Check it out. Here's a link: Deitch Projects
