THE RETURN OF PUCK ART COLLECTIVE… It’s five years since Puck made their special mix of magic happen at Hand of Glory. This evolving group of illustrators, print makers and mess makers are back with a large scale exhibition at DreamBagsJaguarShoes this Autumn.

In true Puck fashion, the brief is open to interpretation. Each Puck artist must submit two pieces that are linked conceptual or aesthetically…. One to be cast into fiery Hell….. the other to be elevated to fluffy Heaven.

In these times of conflicting opinions, internet trolls and popularity based TV shows, Puck are having the final say, holding the scales and swinging the sword of justice.

Soon the day of judgement will arrive… keep an eye on our INSTA for updates

The Guardian picked them for their ‘single of the week’ and describes their sound as ‘David Byrne mudwrestling with the early Streets’ … which would make a superb photograph, especially if Dave is wearing those shoulder pads.

THE BEER GARDEN CONSPIRACY…

Not many people know this…. the season of Spring in the UK is entirely dependent on the opening of the beer garden at The Victoria . Were we to forget to do so, it could cause all manner of problems for migrating birds, tulip bulbs etc.

OK…It may be a bit Wim Hof in it’s practical application at this point of the season, but the mere act of opening the beer garden will definately affect the seasonal air currents, on cue.

So grab a drink and some friends and help us force the weather, together!

MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL (1975)
FREE ENTRY, RSVP HERE

On the edition of 9 November 1979, hosted by Tim Rice, a discussion was held about the then-new film Monty Python’s Life of Brian, which been banned by many local councils and caused protests throughout the world with accusations that it was blasphemous. To argue in favour of this accusation were broadcaster and noted Christian Malcolm Muggeridge and Mervyn Stockwood (the then Bishop of Southwark). In its defence were two members of the Monty Python team, John Cleese and Michael Palin.
A sketch from the 80s TV series “Not the Nine O’Clock News” commenting on the controversy created by the Monty Python’s film: The Life of Brian and satirising the above debate by turning it on its head, making it about offence caused to ‘Pythonists’ by a film about the life of Christ, which not-so-subtley lampoons ‘Brian’ and curiously has a character with the initials ‘J.C’, which could be taken to mean ‘John Cleese’.
