Unconditional ceasefire NOW

Sat 5th August 12.00 assemble Speakers Corner Hyde Park. Come down if you can.

Above are photos from the 22 July demo. Which was really good if only just to show solidarity with the communities of Palestinian and Lebanese people that live in London. I think the support of all communities was really appreciated. I made the Tony poster and a Lebanese man ended up getting me to photograph him carrying it. The scribbled placard sums up the situation perfectly…

11.00-11.30am BBC Radio 4

Jarvis Cocker
Jarvis Cocker explores
The Art Of Pop

Pop musician Jarvis Cocker explores the idea of popular culture being a subject for artistic expression in the first of this series of three programmes. He starts by looking back to the Forties, when artists such as Richard Hamilton and Eduardo Paolozzi were attending Central St Martins College, London (the same college Cocker himself graduated from, much later). Many art students in the immediate post-war period were also part-time musicians, in an era when traditional jazz was about to go head-to-head with early rock ‘n’ roll.

This programme traces the rise of early British pop art through the work of Peter Blake and David Hockney. Their work in the early Sixties reflected the increasing importance of pop culture and rock imagery. British art schools were also turning out scores of artists-turned-musicians, including The Beatles, The Animals, The Rolling Stones and The Who.
