Last Days for the Grand Boucle Exhibition in London

post2_grandeOriginally created at Urban Spree Galerie in July 2012 by Christoph Reichert (chipsnchampagne) and Urban Spree’s resident screenprinter Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker), the Grand Boucle exhibition then travelled to Budapest in April 2013 in an enhanced format and finally hit the UK race tracks in May at Shoreditch’s Kemistry Gallery

Conceived as a critical and visual narrative of vintage and contemporary bike design, Grand Boucle displays a selection of new and vintage bicycles, bespoke saddles as well as  the ‘Grand Boucle’ magazine. Complimenting it is a silk screen printed testimonial to bicycle related design & photography, such as vintage head-badge posters & postcards as well as photographical large scale prints.

Grand Boucle is on until June 1st, 2013.



Shopping – Urban Spree, Berlin

New album All Or Nothing out on 7th February 2020

The DIY ‘supergroup’ Shopping formed in 2012, respected players on a young, queer, East London scene that counted basement venue Power Lunches (RIP) as its hub. Their sound – kinetic, minimalist dance-punk inspired by the likes of ESG, Gang of Four, Slits and Au Pairs – has won them glowing press from all quarters (NME, Pitchfork, NPR), impressive co-signs (Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker is a fan) and a loyal, cross-continent following accrued over three, acclaimed albums: self-released debut Consumer Complaints [2013], a short-run, DIY-distributed release that sold out in a matter of months and was subsequently reissued by FatCat; Why Choose [2015, FatCat], which saw the band touring the States for the first time; and The Official Body [2018, FatCat] – produced by indie pop legend Edwyn Collins.

Along with cleaner, new production values, their brand new album “All Or Nothing” (out on February 7th, 2020 on FatCat) sees Shopping experiment further with the sonic additions that coloured The Official Body. Jubilantly ‘80s synths and electronic percussion add new textures to their signature minimalist dynamic, flourishes that show up on the accelerating zooms of ‘Follow Me’ and the frenetic, propulsive robotics of ‘For Your Pleasure’. “We introduced both of these sounds on the last album and just decided to be more liberal with them this time,” explains Easter. Aggs – feted for her dexterous, Highlife-inspired fret work – went so far as to down guitars for a number of tracks (‘For Your Pleasure’, ‘Follow Me’, ‘Lies’). “It’s been so fun developing quite a specific guitar style within Shopping, but I think we were all getting a little sick of it to be honest! It felt very stale to just have every song be the same formula so I’m glad we did away with the guitar for a few songs.”

“Was passieren kann, wenn die Herangehensweise des Freejazz auf die Zugänglichkeit von Pop und eine an der bildenden Kunst geschulte Praxis treffen, dafür ist „Minus“ ein Fanal, eine regelrechte Markierung des Jahres 2018.“ – Spex

“Caustic, scratchy fire music” – The Wire

“Glorious slabs of noise“ — Victor Schonfield
