Dilly discovered that sometimes the seafront gets a lot closer in Brighton thanks to a massive burst of rainfall!
Danny partied at The Wilderness Festival this weekend to the sounds of Bjork & George Clinton, enjoyed a 2 hour spa session with added lake swimming, amazing food, a ridiculous cricket match, some thought provoking spoken word events and a spectacular art show by La Fura Dels Baus It's a very special festival.
Gray has just finished this book and says it's a must for anyone interested in the evolution of computers and the digital age. Walter Isaacson also wrote the amazing Steve Jobs biography.
Nicola decided to give us an impromptu demonstration of her self taught Brummie Yoga. Please don't try this at home.
Carlito Burrito - Gray's favourite Brighton Mexican joint - has just joined forces with The Cow on Seven Dials and it's every bit as good as he was hoping. Great tasting food with a nice selection of craft beers and cocktails. It's that good he thinks it's even better than going to the restaurant! So chalk this up as another foodie destination pub along with the recent Temple Bar & Curry Leaf Cafe hook up.
Whilst driving around Norfolk in his Camper Van last week Danny stopped off to see the brilliant work of James Turrell at Houghton Hall as recommended by Matthew. Fantastic work in a beautiful setting. Danny also managed to squeeze in a visit here as well.
Super Chilli Plant
A fiery new addition to the studio courtesy of Brighton Chilli Shop. Matthew & Gray can't wait to taste the goods!
The Chosen Form of Your Destroyer
Matthew visited the Ian Francis solo show at Lazarides Gallery in Rathbone Street London. Excellent paintings and stunning charcoals. This pic doesn't do the show justice - you need to see them in the flesh to see the vibrancy and detail.
Every month Gray receives a super cool gift through the post from his lovely girlfriend via 'NOT ANOTHER BILL'. This month they collaborated with Belgian stationery wizards Le Typographe to produce a bespoke reporter's notebook. Fancy!
Danny enjoyed this plate of homemade Huevos Rancheros at Love Supreme this weekend. You may have seen him busting some sort of moves to one of his funk heroes Larry Graham. Candi Staton was great fun as well.
Gray was lucky enough to catch the final weekend of Justin Mortimer's solo show at Parafin in London. Beautiful paintings of an imagined apocalypse.
This weekend Gray confronted his fear of shellfish with an awesome sharing platter from The Salt Room. He's still not convinced he'll ever like oysters though.
Whenever Danny leaves Brighton in his camper van he always takes a piece of Brighton with him. Well more of a bottle really - http://www.brightongin.com/
Just don’t forget the Fever-Tree tonic, orange and a job lot of ice. And a ton of sweet vinyl always helps.
Danny is obsessed with Huevos Rancheros and this plate is from The Breakfast Club in Brighton. Not the most authentic version, but it did fill a massive hole!
We think our Wilson Brothers sticker looks splendid on our hand dryer. The clever so & so’s could probably design & build us a better hand dryer if they wanted too.
We love a good pork scratching and when Nicola visits her Mum in the Black Country we get a delivery of Brownhills finest Pork Scratchings. We think she should visit her Mum more often.
The best Huevos Rancheros Danny has eaten so far (not made by his wife) are from Bakers and Roasters in Amsterdam. It’s a New Zealand style cafe with a heavy dose of Brazil and they know what they are doing. The coffee is also superb. You might have queue to get in but it’s well worth it.
