Unknown Pleasures a Celebration May - August 2010
The Life and Work of Ian Curtis and Joy Division
Macclesfield Silk Museum
July 29–August 7

"This exhibit brings together a wide range of material - posters, handbills, handwritten documents, and other memorabilia - for the first time. Much of it comes from the fans - a testament to Joy Division's continued i...mpact. It also provides a history of pop graphics, from punk through to the early 80's."

Director Richard de Peyer says: "Macclesfield has never had the opportunity to celebrate Ian Curtis' work in a way which benefits the communities of the town and also attracts music fans from far and wide. This summer seemed like the right moment to do that."

The show includes photography including a rarely seen image by Mark Reeder, as well as press cuttings from the time and film footage, including unseen glimpses of the band in concert."

I found Nicole Blommers work like so many others, random searches, flying from one link to another until i find something truly exciting.
When i saw her first Photography's i knew i was on the something but was totally caught by surprise with the extension of her work.
Nicole is not only a great Photographer but also a Street Art "Fanatic", worked in radio for six years, started with fellow enthusiasts the music website 3VOOR12/Arnhem-Nijmegen, freelance writer for independent style magazine Glamcult and to wrap it up also part of the Amsterdam Street Art that will have the first event in two weeks time
By coincidence she is Dutch and we leave in same city, Haarlem just a few minutes from Amsterdam. In a few weeks time we are going to know more about her bits and pieces in a Audiopleasures interview and she will make a mixtape for "mY Indie Soul"

How to Destroy Angels, the new super hyped Trent Reznor project with former West Indian Girl frontwoman Mariqueen Maandig has announced that their first Ep will be for free and will be available on the fist of June.
