I was cleaning out an old PC and came across these images of Jake in our studio. This studio no longer exists and the various pieces of equipment are spread across the UK.

REVIEW – FINISH THE STORY – THE SAMPLER #05

tracks. ‘Playing At Life’ is even better with a mean throb, and more of his sublimely catchy, nagging guitar with Nicola’s unusually piercing vocals and a weirdly spooky synth. ‘Solace’ is more relaxed, actually far more towards the This Window style, being like ambient bellows, billowing………..and there’s an intriguing little slice called ‘Ripples In The Water’ at the end too.

There is no such thing as an artist – I am a painter, I create decorations for walls.
There you go the truth is out – I have never been a true artist. The naked truth is I have been and still am a liar.

Screen print over ink wash
The goal of ink and wash painting is not simply to reproduce the appearance of the subject, but to capture its soul. To paint a horse, the ink wash painting artist must understand its temperament better than its muscles and bones. To paint a flower, there is no need to perfectly match its petals and colors, but it is essential to convey its liveliness and fragrance. East Asian ink wash painting may be regarded as an earliest form of expressionistic art that captures the unseen.
