The Chapman Brothers In Hastings

Help bring the Chapman Brothers to Jerwood Gallery, a beachside art gallery in the artists’ hometown of Hastings. C’maan, it’ll be fun! The exhibition they want to put on will present a new, previously unseen body of work by the Brothers and will feature works …

Stormzy – Not That Deep

Not That Deep is off Stormzy’s new EP, ‘The Dreamer’s Disease’, and was produced by The Heavytrackerz, who are the folks behind German Whip, no less. Listen out for the part where he talks about beating someone up in JD Sports, it’s a pretty great …

Martin Parr’s Signs Of The Times

Signs of the Times, a five-part series first broadcast on BBC2 in 1992, was subtitled ‘a portrait of a nation’s taste’, and took tours of 50 very different British homes with commentary from the people who made them. Nick Barker, the director of Signs of …

Electric Wizard – I Am Nothing

New jams outta Dorset. Their new album Time to Die will be out September 30th via Spinefarm. What else is there to say? Get doomed. (There’s been a lot of songs up on BH recently, they’re easy to post and we’re all busy with other …

Gnarwolves – Smoking Kills

Every single Gnarwolves video so far has made me want to move to Brighton. I’m not sure my negative attitude would sit well with the upbeat, wholesome folks down there for long though. Look at ‘em go! Pop-punking so hard it brings a tear to …

Jethro Coldwell’s ‘Perspectives’

UK skateboard company Landscape has recently added Stoke lad Jethro Coldwell to their team. Here’s his first spot in their new series, ‘Perspectives’, which aims to give a new angle on skaters and capture their individual styles. It’s better than ‘cherry’ anyway. Watch Jed tear …

Pints – Holstenz

The best band in Britain made a video. “I DON’T PAY RENT AND I DON’T PAY BILLS BECAUSE I SPENT ALL MY MONEY ON THE HOLSTEN PILLS. I DON’T DO THE DISHES OR DO THE WASHING UP BECAUSE I SPENT ALL DAY GETTING PISSED DOWN …

Guidance – Turning Tides & Soul Force

@finspo Prolific musicians often let their side projects fall by the wayside, to mixed reception. I think we’d all like to hear some new The Wernt or Down, but it’s probably for the best that The Last Shadow Puppets and Marmaduke Duke are consigned to …

Blood Orange ft. Skepta – High Street

@finspo Dev Hynes has hit onto something excellent with Blood Orange. Mining the early 80′s as an influence is a dangerous game, often encumbered with a contrived irony or naive fondness; however, Hynes appears in his element combining ostentatious style with emotional resonance, plus simply …

British Folk Art At The Tate

This opens on the Thursday at the Tate Britain. Don’t sleep on it! Tate Britain’s new exhibition introduces the extraordinary and surprising works of some of Britain’s unsung artists. Steeped in tradition and often created by self-taught artists and artisans, the often humble but always …

Sievehead

@finspo As much as my fingers itch to tag Sievehead under ‘Punk & Hardcore’, it’d be a disservice to hem the group into anything too specific, but their lineup is drawn from old hands Fast Point and Dry Heaves. Think Mission of Burma’s nervous jangles, …

Ninjafest 2014

@finspo Longstanding London all-dayer Ninjafest has just revealed this year’s lineup. As in the past, a host of veteran and new blood U.K., U.S. and European hardcore groups feature, from the likes of Ninebar and Prowler to Renounced and World Eater. Register your interest/thoughts/unrealistic band …

Dignan Porch – Forever Unobscured

It won’t last forever, but for now let’s all enjoy VHS music videos while they still conjure up the sensation of unnerving other-ness that we first felt when we watched a fourth generation bootleg of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in our friend’s older brother’s bedroom …

Adam And Joe – The Footie Song

The World Cup is happening. I try to enjoy it so I can muck in with my friends in pubs, but after three minutes of moderate-at-best enthusiasm I may as well be watching television static and I want to go back to talking about myself …

Dougie Wallace’s Stags, Hens And Bunnies

Scottish photographer Dougie Wallace embedded himself in the rowdy, bloody parties of England’s gnarliest bachelor/hen-party destination: Liverpool. Go buy his carnage-filled book of photographs, Stags, Hens and Bunnies right here. Blackpool has an unenviable reputation for its stag and hen parties. Every weekend marauding packs …

Colin O’Brien’s Life In London

Colin O’Brien has been taking photos of London for 60 years. You should go see his recent exhibition ‘London Life’ and buy his book, ‘Travellers’ Children in London Fields’. O’Brien has been living in Hackney since 1984, and the exhibition at the Hackney Museum brings …

Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore

It’s been a slow week here on BH – real, actual job things took over and putting this together was onerous, plus Fin had to change banter base camp (read: move house.) To make up for this week’s poor show, here’s a classic that might’ve …

Dean Blunt’s Been Busy

Confirmed brilliant weirdo and Dalston-raised international man of mystery Dean Blunt put a new video up today, it’s him freestyling creepy stuff over a creepy beat while wearing his hat all low, like how he does now. What else is there to say? Have a …
