Stop Flooding My Record Collection

I cant fuckin wait for this:

Stop flooding my record collection is a charity exhibition where artists have created new covers for a jazz records salvaged from the Brisbane floods. Join us at Smiley McSlidey (124 Nicholson St, Brunswick East) from 6pm on Friday 6 May to add a special record to your collection and contribute to a great cause.

Artists, illustrators and designers from Australia and abroad have generously contributed their talents to the project, creating original album artwork to help raise money for the ongoing relief effort. French, Tin & Ed, Webuyyourkids, Rudi De Wet, The Hungry Workshop and Hank & Matlok headline a solid list of creatives contributing to the project.

Stop flooding my record collection came about after a large, waterlogged stack – 50 years of lovingly collected jazz records – were saved during the clean up effort after the Brisbane floods. The cover-less albums were then put out to artists, who chose their muse and set about creating new sleeves for the vinyl.

This exhibition is a celebration of art, music and the significant and emotional role these things play in our lives. It is an opportunity, through the act of reclaiming this nigh lost collection, to help some of the many Queenslanders that were so badly effected by the 2011 floods.

All proceeds donated to The Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal.

Participating artists: Alan Crowne, Andrew Fiscalini, Andrew Kwa, Bo Stahlman, Carmela Ruffino, Catherine Insch, Celine Paquet, Corey Silva, Elizabeth Carruthers, Eric John Ocson, French, Hank & Matlok, Haw The Hungry Workshop, Jack Tierney, Karen Chan, Kasia Pawlikowski, Lifelounge, Marijke Arkley, Matthew Brown, Monique Kneepkens, Michael Tan, Peter Binek, Peter Salmon-Lomas, Reidar Oksavik, Rudi DeWet, Shane Loorham, Simon Buutveld, Spew Corp, Trent Hendrick, Tin & Ed, Victoria Topping, Webuyyourkids.

Date: Friday 6 May – Sunday 8 May.
Time: 6pm
Where: Smiley McSlidey (124 Nicholson St, Brunswick East)
RSVP: Facebook

Thank you to, Smiley McSlidey, Zenith Records, and the Cullen family for the records.

His hair. His skin.

At times I panicked. At others, he panicked.

Occasionally we both panicked at the same time.

Sometimes you think, we have got this totally under control.
But control's a funny thing. It just means uncontrollable is right around the corner.

Sometimes you see a mate who's a builder, with his eco cup walking out into the same
damp morning you've just stepped into... and you realise that this lack of sleep over the past year
IS making for a fragmented, splintered life.

Look at his shorts we said. His hair. His skin. Everything is so clean.
Mr Builder flashes an amazing set of whites at us and says to us both, right on cue. Fuck I just had an amazing sleep boys.
Ooo Roo

You get in your car, you think fuck..I gotta make some adjustments. I do. I really do.
But by the time you're home, and this happens every time, you fuck that mate.

You can keep your amazing sleep. I just had a wicked fuckin time.

Mice to Cheese

And of course mate. Both of us took to the dance floor like mice to cheese.

Road From Nowhere

It's very hard to get ya head right when you dont know what right is anymore.

Where have we come from and what were we doing? BV?

Never dug Road To Nowhere as a kid cos I didnt like it's existential nihilism. Did I?

Lived in a nice little place, sun was shining, milkshakes were a regular surprise.
Didnt seem like the kinda thing a kid should be singing to himself..

Had he sung we're on a road FROM nowhere weelllllllllll I'd have got his meaning right away


It was still daytime but the room was dark.

We were scuzzed and the noise was everywhere.

Lights tripped the fan dango.

Strangers were in our home.

It was cold and darkness was coming.

Darkness was coming.
