"In the future everybody will be world famous for 15 minutes........" Andy Warhol

'little guy, really small', wearing fogey clothes and a silver wig. 'He was the perfect sitter.'~ Red Saunders. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Saunders_(photographer)

On the other side of the road:Leeds Marks&Spencers,Friday.(click for biggery)
Next Friday we are in Manchester during the day/evening.We take part in loads of Peterloo-related activity (eg GMEX 12:30 to 1:30 )
 In the evening the artist photographer Red Saunders is projecting Giant photos of Me & Cathy onto the side of the Bridgewater Hall building.
By sheer chance , a never before seen photo of Andy Warhol (taken by Red ) has been released this week to mark Andy's Birthday ( 5th August ).
See that photo & link to an interview below.
Next Tuesday we go hear New Zealand band "Tiny Ruins" at Hebden Bridge Trades Club. https://thetradesclub.com/events/tiny-ruins
i gather they are installing a stair-lift in The Trades this week. We can now reach the stars in comfort......


Yesterday we caught the train into Leeds.It's the first time I have been there for 5 years.
The last time i went was soon after coming out of hospital post-pneumonia.
 Both then, and yesterday,  the reason for going was to see Rachael at id.http://www.idaromatics.co.uk/(100yards from  the train station) to pick up her famous "Asthma Blend".
Leeds itself is still shit.https://zimnoch.smugmug.com/Leeds-9th-August-2019/
