You can catch their show EUPHONY on the first Monday of every month on worldwidefm.net. He steps up for his second mix for us this year with some wonderful balearic and house sounds to warm you up.

The Work of Nan Goldin

Nan Goldin was born in 1953 in Washington DC and grew up in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts. When Goldin was 11, her older sister committed suicide and this event had a profound impact on the artist. She was introduced to photography at the age of 15 and immediately began to utilise the medium to document both herself and those closest to her in addition to exploring social issues that were too often ignored, such as the HIV crisis in the 1980s and the current opioid epidemic.

Goldin has always maintained a level of respect for her subjects, such as the gay and transgender communities she often documented and aims to bring these underrepresented communities to light, not illustrate them as spectacles.  Her most famous series, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, made during 1979 and 1986, captures her cohort of drug-taking, cross-dressing, self-destructive friends and comrades in the depressed Bowery section of Manhattan.

Goldin splits her time between the US and Europe and her works are held, and continue to be acquired, by major collections worldwide, including the Tate Modern, London; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Few photographers can boast a body of work as uncompromisingly honest and thought provoking as Nan Goldin.

Wanto 246

246 is the most important crew in Tokyo graffiti and arguably the most influential graffiti artist in that scene is the 246’s founder, WANTO.

WANTO is inspired by the tags of mid-90s American graffiti artists and this can be seen in his instantly-recognisible spiky ‘W’ tag.

Fucking Awesome and WANTO have collaborated in the past and for AW21 they come together to bring us a wide horizontal stripe pattern sweater filled with Wanto graffiti.

New Order – Play at Home

As the release of the Peter J Walsh – RAVE ONE book zones in on the Hacienda, it is a good time to check out the weird and wonderful New Order – Play at Home mini documentary from 1984.

It contains footage from the club space and the usual suspects such as Bernard Sumner, Peter Saville, Rob Gretton and Tony Wilson in the nip in a bath!
