Celebrity Art Party with Amy Abshier Reyes

Celebrity Art Party is a semi-occurring feature, wherein the artists we enjoy interpret their favorite song. This installment features Amy Abshier-Reyes, whom we'd never met before being introduced at a Spoon show a few months back, but quickly discovered her to be a fantastic and interesting person. Abshier-Reyes' work is a collection of haunting portraits, and her piece for Celebrity Art Party is no different. Amy Abshier-Reyes - Joy Division 'Ceremony' web Song title: "Ceremony" Artist: Joy Division/New Order Version of song (live, album, remix, etc.): I really love the New Order 12" version, originally released in 1981 on Factory Records.

When did you first hear it? I must have been 14 or 15; I honestly don't remember. I think it crept into my subconscious and just sort of simmered there until I was ready for it. How does music such as this inspire you in your work? There's always music in my studio, in my car, in my home, in the back of my mind... It can alter my mood, letting me settle down into a receptive, creative zone. I'm not a musician, but music is one of my oldest loves. It's a huge part of my life and I listen to so many different kinds. Everything from shoegaze to bossa nova to punk to old country to new wave to psychedelic to electronica ... I could go on and on. How has this song changed for you since you first heard it? I don't know that it has; I still feel the same emotions and sensations that I remember having listening to it as a kid. I sometimes joke that this better get played at my funeral, or someone's gonna be in trouble. What upcoming projects do you have? I'm always working on new pieces. I love painting eyes, so I paint a lot of single eye portraits, almost like the miniature lovers' eye portraits that were popular in Georgian times. I generally have work available to view at the Blue Gallery in Kansas City. You can find more information about Amy Abshier-Reyes at her Facebook page or buy things from her via Etsy.

Erythromycin Opthalmic Oint

book-cover-totally-wiredAnyone who's read Simon Reynolds's Rip It Up and Start Again Erythromycin Opthalmic Oint, can tell you that his account of the post-punk era is a riveting read that will send you scurrying to iTunes and your local record shop to delve deeply into the music of Factory Records and beyond. While Reynolds has a website wherein you can find footnotes for Rip It Up and Start Again, there's even more material that he compiled during the writing of the book.

That material is being released by Soft Skull next month as Totally Wired: Postpunk Interviews and Overviews. It contains interviews Reynolds conducted in preparation for writing Rip It Up and Start Again, as well as the "lost chapter" about SST and the Minutemen / Black Flag that was cut from the US edition of the original book. Erythromycin Opthalmic Oint overseas, After having read the SST chapter, I can understand as to why it was cut from the US edition of Rip It Up and Start Again. The analysis of how Black Flag went from being a fast punk band to hardcore to a sludgy, plodding proto-stoner rock band is fascinating, and one of the few instances where you can see an act progress from punk to post-punk, Erythromycin Opthalmic Oint. However, the jump in milieu from the UK to US is disconcerting, and while the material would've been an excellent addition to some of the recent California punk books like Kids of the Black Hole or Gimme Something Better, it just didn't fit in with the UK scene.

The interviews are essential for fans of the bands involved, Erythromycin Opthalmic Oint australia, and if you're just getting into any of the acts covered, you can get a deeper sense of how their sound developed, especially in how people in the production realm (like Martin Hannett with Joy Division) helped create a sound aesthetic for ther bands with whom they worked. The interviews with folks with whom you're not familiar are like every other interview you've ever read: interesting when the person has interesting points of view, boring as shit when they're boring as shit. 1000mg Erythromycin Opthalmic Oint, Ari Up of the Slits is intriguing, if a bit "we started everything!" in her interview, and offers a much-needed female perspective, while the folks from Cabaret Voltaire are just as pretentious as you'd think. Surprisingly, the gents from Joy Division end up being fairly grounded.

This is more a bathroom book than a straight read, Erythromycin Opthalmic Oint coupon, obviously. You'll jump around in it, reading the bits you're most interested in first, and only coming around to the other parts when you've read everything you wanted to. It's 100% worth having on your shelf, Erythromycin Opthalmic Oint us, however, and invaluable for fleshing out the stories referred to in Rip It Up and Start Again (specifically, you finally find out exactly why Martin Hannett had Joy Division's drummer Stephen Morris take his drum kit apart).
