Can you feel it?

A truly cosmic video! Let's remember him this way, sprinkling PCP over city folk. Surely someone must have been enjoying something stronger than a beer during the making of this...

Super Furry Animals Warehouse Party II

Saturday July 18th 2009
10 pm – 6 am
Tickets £10 advance
Corsica Studios 5 Elephant Road London SE17 1LB
Tel: 020 7703 4760


Already notorious for their end of gig techno finales and for throwing festival after-show raves from on top of their tank, Super Furry Animals continue this tradition in fine style as they once more take over Corsica Studios for the mother of all after-show parties.
After the sell-out success of the last SFA after party following their Roundhouse shows in Nov 2007, the Furries have decided to return to Corsica and throw another all night warehouse bash. Straight after their Somerset House show on July 18th they’ll be hot-footing it over the river with a host of their favourite DJs in tow.

After the all-out techno onslaught of their last event with sets from Andrew Weatherall and Evil Eddie Richards (including a rare early 90's rave set from 'the godfather of house and techno'), this time they’re taking a trip back to explore their deep-fried acid-folk origins. Expect wild and wonderful DJ sets from SFA members Gruff Rhys and Guto Pryce themselves, buckets of psychedelic freak beat fuzzy madness from special guests Cherrystones (Whatever We Want, Poptones), Andy Votel (Twisted Nerve, B Music, Finders Keepers), Pete Fowler (Monsterism) and fellow patriot Huw Evans, a whole other room of mutant techno from the Acid Casuals featuring Paps aka Cian Ciaran from SFA plus a slick mixture of kraut-rock, cosmic disco and techno grooves from Allez Allez, Jagz Kooner (Sabres of Paradise), Copious Breaks & Tomahawk – Psychemagik and the Kosmische Club DJs.

Tickets will be priced at £10 but there are a limited number of £7 early bird tickets available from wegottickets.com.The rest of the tickets will be on sale through seetickets.com, club tickets.com and ticketmaster.com.

Stolenspace group show

I've just contributed a painting to a group show at Stolenspace gallery in London this thursday 2nd July. Here's a picture of the piece ahead of the show, someone told me today it's psycho-sexual..It's just a drawing of a cosmic cave.
The colours are WAY of on this picture by the way, darn day glo paint!

Psychedelic Jamboree Part 3

Greetings to you all and a cool flap of air to those about to melt!
We are proud this month to have DJ Cherrystones join Jon ( as I'm
away on my cosmic holiday) next wednesday the 8th at the Big Chill Bar off Brick Lane.

Renowned for his impeccable compilations (Cherrystones Rocks and Cherrystones Word) and much sought after dj gigs as well as producing his own music under the Godsy moniker on NYC's Whateverwewantrecords label, Cherrystones casts a wide net yet fine filter on his selections from 50's trash, kosmiche, psych, glam, electronic, prog, electronic to the further limits of music and beyond.

HOT 110 Interview

I feel this is me, me, me but it is my blog! The nice people at HOT 110 came to my studio and did a wee interview. I like the bit where I'm making tea, that's real tea not TV tea by the way.

True Stories: Close Encounters in Siberia
In 1908, a huge explosion shook a remote region of Siberia, with the epicentre of the phenomenon occuring near the Tunguska river. However, all that was found on investigating the area was 80 million uprooted trees lying in neat rows. 100 years later, filmmaker George Carey headed for the remote region, where he joined communities of mystics, amateur sleuths and scientists dedicated to solving the mystery surrounding the event.
