The Nomenclature of Colours, part of Colour & Poetry: A Symposium has opened just now @sladeschool and will run all day today and tomorrow with a fantastic marathon of talks and events. This is my contribution Emotional Colours of an EEG Line (Electric Lullaby), a colour analysis, self-reflection and bit of diagrammatic writing on recent installation work
@conorleslie as Donna is basically the main reason I'll be watching season 2. We didn't see much of her, but I liked what I saw, especially the bits about how she uses her photography skills to fight evil. The Wilson family will be there but if they're treated the way season one villains were then we're better off with the CW version. Idk how Titans is soooo much better than CW, at least they have some compelling and interesting villains like Eobard, Slade, and Merlin (with quite a bit of bad as well) but I can't even remember a name of any of the villains beyond Trigon who had very little screen time. The first season of Arrow was so much better than this. -
I caught a little flak awhile ago for referring to Slade as “big, dumb rock n’ roll.” Like that’s a bad thing? If nothing else, Slade were a band completely for their fans and had no desire to please any rock critics or mainstream media, and that is precisely what makes them special. Unlike so many pandering fame-seekers and fakers of the era, Slade knew exactly who they were and what they were capable of and stayed in their lane all the way through their career, with minor variations and a few questionable fashion decisions along the way. They never gained much of a holding here in the States, and as Lester Bangs once said, “you can’t expect football chants to work in America.” This is really their first proper album as Slade; Ambrose Slade released an album of psychedelic covers before this one, but here are the “beginnings” (no pun) of the band we really know as Slade. Full disclosure, as far as their studio albums go, this is far and away my favorite. The sleeve art shows them donning Skin/Suedehead gear, as their manager thought it would be a good idea to focus on the working class market, a style they quickly abandoned, yet again proving themselves to be themselves and no one else. But the seed was sown, and the loud noise-loving kids were really hooked on their brand of stripped-down no-frills rock n’ roll, a stark contrast to the Prog of the day.
That’s not to say they don’t have psych and progressive elements in them, and this album goes to show that; it may be Slade gaining their footing, but it’s still far from their stomp n’ clap anthems. “Raven,” “Know Who You Are,” and the cover of “The Shape of Things to Come” are just a few examples of one foot rooted in the 60’s while the 70’s comes on strong. I like this album better than say, “Slayed?,” because it strikes a balance, bridging psych and heavy rock, never really going too far in either direction, making some damn fine songs in the process. Where else are you going to find a lament to an old horse being put out to pasture on a rock n’ roll album? Play it loud! This is a first UK pressing, sounds great.
It's the First Four of March Madness, but no worries! The family sports fans can still watch the game as our cabins have satellite or cable TV included. Don't forget to plan your outdoor activities around your favorite team!
Roelof Louw (1936–2017) created sculpture from wooden slats, cast-iron wedges, sand-blasted and painted scaffolding poles, rope and neon. He made installations using industrial rubber bands, rolled-up lead sheets, or using tape recorders and the movements of viewers around a space. His work addresses itself to our bodies and minds, implicating them in its realisation and its sites, which might be streets, parks, woods or galleries.

We came 3rd in Classic Rock Magazine!! TREMENDOUS thankyou to everyone that voted for us! "It takes a certain degree of confidence to call your band ‘Tremendous’. Happily, this Birmingham-based crew have the chops and ear for a good tune to back it up. A tight yet warm marriage of Bowie-esque glam and driving contemporary rock"
