Finished Billboard!

After baking in the sun for a day and a half I can reveal the finished Psychedelic Yacht Rock billboard. A tribute to those sailing the stormy cosmic seas in search of skyships. The piece is situated next to the red London routemaster in the Truman Brewery carpark and is on display for around 6 weeks. There's a beach 'style' bar next to it so why not have a Pina Colada next to it and whistle some Rupert Holmes.
Sail on sailor!

Big Chill post mortem

Fun fun fun and more fun was had at Big Chill fest, thanks to a merry crew of shipmates on deck. Big shout out to Bobcat, Captain Tye, Mr Blackwell and Dan Joyce for taking the ship's wheel when needed! Dan has put together a trailer of the film he's making of the fest at the moment, here it is below.
If anyone knows where to get in touch with James and Harry (from the car thursday night) please get in touch! They have a bright future ahead of them if they made it to the end of the fest!

We are proud this month to have the marvelous Fred Deakin of Lemon Jelly and Airside fame join Jon and I next wednesday the 12th of August at the Big Chill Bar off Brick Lane.

Renowned for his blockbusting success with Lemon Jelly, fantastic mix CDs (triptych and Nu Balearica) and his award winning Airside Studios creative work we are indeed blessed to have Fred behind the decks. Expect some cosmic disco, blissed balearic and whatever he fancies slapping on, you know you are in safe hands with Captain Deakin at the wheel, steering the vessel.

All aboard the Big Chill Bar and hope to see you all on the poop deck.

Big Chillage

Bit of a last minute post as the festival starts tomorrow but just before I pack my bags to go to the Big Chill I thought I'd post up what;s going down for anyone attending the fest...

Two of the crew from MAW have recently recorded a 30 minute soundtrack to a yet to be made zombie movie (I know, it's a strange concept but we dig it) filmed and shown on loop at this coming weekend's Big Chill festival. The soundtrack will be played from one of 6 wrecked cars at the Dereliction Drive-In and MAW will be getting their hands dirty painting said car pre festival and potentially turning into the undead themselves on thursday night...

Another slice of the MAW Big Chill adventure will presented, on a wooden board, on saturday where MAW will perform a rare live set. Using stripped down equipment and duelling Suffolk synths, picking up transmissions from the ether and fried field tape recordings we expect some deep drones, space echo'ed lines, arpeggiatedelayathons and horses eating. (time TBC)

The final slice of the Big Chill steak and MAW pie, go on, just one more piece, it's the Cosmic Jamboree. MAW will host a sunday afternoon, playing psyche, Hypnogogic wall prog, exotica, discoid, yacht rock, electronik and boogie together with live sets from Laura J Martin & The Simon Sound. We will also be distributing MAW masks over the afternoon which are absolutely free, baby. And we're notstopping there, badges and stickers will be available too, no free jelly though this time:(
Sunday 12-5pm

See you thereabouts!
