As your probably aware we visited Barcelona this year. I uploaded the photo on the bottom on Instagram which prompted us receiving an email with more flicks. As you do, when you see a dark tunnel and begin to explore our fellow travelers shut the garage door on us, (only to, though). As I would do, and did do, had drank a considerable amount of beer beforehand and instead of pushing it back open pushed it shut and couldn’t get out. The ‘great’ friends that were with us mocked, took the piss, took photos and went about they’re day. Fortunately as many of you may know, the finest Asian beverage retailers at 2am were out in force and we’re selling us samosas through the shutter.
Anyway we found a way up to apartments, woke up a spanish bloke and he let us out… The End
*EDIT (the other caged man) we scuffled around for an hour in the dark looking for a door, 2 doors wouldn’t open, the release button for the garage door didn’t open, there were no buttons in the lift, a nameless person took a shit in someone’s utility cupboard during this ordeal,after a 3rd door wouldn’t open there was a threat of pushing a moped through the glass front door onto the street, the woken Spanish man threw us out because he couldn’t understand we wanted escorting out. Hence the happy ending.
So whilst in Manchester we bumped into Quick and GoodKid RWS from Iceland, shared a few storys and showed a few photos. His explanation about the scene over there was there isn’t many trains out there so they paint ships, here’s a few photos from they’re magazine and a few flicks from what they painted…
Right then there’s a brand new shop just starting.
Head Quarters in Leicester…
Mans and Womans pon da art like Mono, PomOne, Vents, Ziner, Lewse, Creak, Skank, Deys, Piz, OneNil and RenOne have turned up to paint and decorate HQ (apologies if anyone’s been missed).
If your from the Leicester’s endz Bruv or passing through their manor, make sure you represent and keep business local.
What I will say is if your an unfortunate one that wasn’t old enough when the beginning of rave culture started (me being one of them being roughly 2 or 3) this place has a lot of history with big names leading from this location.
Here’s what HQ have got to say….
The creative hub, known as “HQ”, is located at 38 Charles Street in Leicester City Centre, having taken over the premises formerly occupied by 5HQ (former home of the Formation Record label). The venue contains high quality recording studio facilities, workshop areas, gallery and exhibition space, art supplies, event tickets and much more.
And here’s some exclusive sneak preview flicks of what to expect..
Also if any bredders wants to land on the opening day here’s the details blud…
The grand opening of HQ will take place on Friday 6th July from 3pm until 8pm and is open to anyone to attend. The event will feature guided tours of the recording studio facilities with performers and producers showcasing their recent projects. As the building is famed for being an integral part of the early rave scene, an art exhibition entitled “Rave Culture”, featuring works from local artists will also be on display in the gallery space.
