  1. Bandcamp

    Our Bandcamp site is now open here where all the Urthona records can be streamed or downloaded (as high quality aiff files). Our CDs are for sale there too.

  2. The Long Stone

    The Long Stone at Mottistone (‘Moot Stone’), Isle of Wight. The stone(s) are the remains of a neolithic long barrow, and have been on our meg hit-list for yonks.

  3. Teleportation Machine from the Fly

    Apparently the Style Council were in one chamber and the Wurzels were in the other, and this was the horrible result…

  4. Bristol pix

    Here are some pics of us – thanks to Tom Bolton for ’em – at the Bristol Fleece last night. Good meeting some of ya there and the night before in Reading.


  5. Shows this weekend

    We’re totally vibed to be playing Urthona and the Asterism support slots for Julian Cope this weekend at Reading Sub89 on Friday and Bristol Fleece on Saturday. Links to tickets and all that stuff here. Come say howdy if you’re gonna be there.

  6. Brownsea Island

    Family scouting camp a few weeks ago on the extraordinary oasis of Brownsea Island, Poole Harbour, Dorset. Red squirrels, huge wood ants, swarms of goddam mossies yes. Glow worms no. Pesky glow worms!

  7. Gee Vaucher

    In case ya missed it, Gee Vaucher’s mindblowing CRASS ART AND OTHER PRE POSTMODERNIST MONSTERS 1961 – 1997 was reissued last month (on Gee Vaucher and Penny Rimbaud’s Exitstencil Press). And don’t those old Crass covers still look totally great – and (old fart alert) remind you how much yer missing with artwork/mythology-free downloads. Do you want to check it out here – course you fucking do!

  8. Lido

    Plymouth Hoe’s magic Art Deco Lido ‘Tinside’ showed up here last month so Janner props to Darren Hayman’s new Lido CD (on Clay Pipe Music who put out the very great Tyneham House CD last year) which has a track called Tinside. You can hear the whole thing here. Even better bag yourself the artfully packaged CD. Remember kids, it’s open air or saltwater else it’s nothing at all!

  9. the Devil’s Quoits

    The reconstruction of the Devil’s Quoits, a stone circle and henge at Stanton Harcourt, Oxfordshire. Improbably located between a landfill site, a lake formed by gravel extraction pit and a recycling centre (the rural idyll of middle England or wot?), the site is pretty damn vibey. Can’t remember ever seeing so many damselfies in one place either. Makes ya think prehistoric reconstructions are the way forward, yeah?


  10. Nowhere Island: Now Here Is Land

    Alex Hartley/Situations’ intriguing and excellent Nowhere Island project is travelling around the SW coast until September. Here it is, moored in Plymouth Sound on Thursday, with the embassy parked up on Jennycliff. Yeah, we’ve become citizens and have offered our own suggestions for the constitution. We’ll probably be back there for the Bristol leg next month too. Hopefully there will be less stinking, rotting seaweed than there was on Jennycliff Beach!). Check it out here.
