Her bag was like one of the old Penguin book covers. 23rd July, 6.40pm.
How painful must it be to have your throat tattooed? 25th July, 5.30pm - ish.

Here's my artwork* for Sarandon's new single, out on the Little Car label some time in the near future.
It's cracking stuff (I mean the record, not my drawing) - all itchy, scratchy hyperactive guitar riffs and, on the b-side, a caffeined cover of the Swell Maps' 'Vertical Slum'. I recommend all readers buy a copy, if only for the sheer beauty of the packaging, eh what.
*not all on my own, mind you. I had a bit of design help here and there, from both Sheran and Crayola. Thank-yuh, kindly, chaps.

Woman rushing for the train on platform 8. Around 6.45pm.
And this chap wasn't necessarily using public transport, but I had to include him. He was dressed in a knackered old white suit, a white fur coat (slung over his shoulders) and carrying three white leather handbags, which were crammed full with all his worldly posessions. He'd finished off the outfit with a blood-red tie and was standing, stock-still, outside WH Smiths.

You see that? That's Grace Jones' huge bendy head. Last month, she played at the Royal Festival Hall in London, for a one-off show and I'm really glad I went.
And before appeared in the flesh, a filmed version of Grace (huge, warped, massive) flickered on above the stage and started singing her forthcoming single. Pretty impressive, too, even if it wasn't a mile away from one of those 'effects' you get on apple mac webcams. Anyway - more bands should do intro-films (much like Devo do). There's my two-penneth.
You can read a review of Grace's gig here, if you like.
Edit (October 2008) - Turns out the film we watched his the video to her 'comeback' single - Corporate Cannibal.
