Opening Reception Saturday October 30th, 6 - 8 pm
For further info and to see much more of Pieter's work go to miguelabreu.com
Note: I couldn't manage to get an image of one of Pieter's new works for this post. The above painting is an earlier work in the same series - I don't believe it is part of this exhibition.

Finally, there may just be a proper documentary on William S. Burroughs. There was "Burroughs" from 1983 that was good, but a little disjointed and incomplete (here's the best bit). Let's hope this new documentary, "A Man Within," fills in the blanks.
There have been screenings all over and the film will be at the IFC Theater in NYC starting Nov 17th.

Out now, "Wounded Galaxies Tap at the Window," the long-awaited new album by Cyclobe (featuring Stephen Thrower, ex-Coil, current UnicaZürn, etc, and Ossian Brown, also ex-Coil and Current 93 collaborator). If you are unfamiliar with this group they make exquisite and complex dark experimental music of the highest order. The previous releases by Cyclobe are pretty much the soundtrack to the Colors of the Dark universe. The limited edition LP is available now at cyclobe.com and the CD version is coming soon.
You can read a review and listen to an MP3 sample over here at Brainwashed.
Last but certainly not least, check out that beautiful artwork by Fred Tomaselli (you can see more of his work here).

Irish artist / designer / musician Paul McCarroll has just had a beautiful book of his work published.
Here's a few words from Paul about it:
It's been over two years in the making and under my hat for most of that but I'm now proud to announce that my first artbook 'Animus Unhinged', from the good people at Speedlines Publishing is available to buy now. It's a 23cm square format hardcover edition with gold foil graphics. Over the 170 pages there is very little text. I wanted to present the art as cleanly as possible and have removed all graphic elements such as titles and logos from cover art and design that I've done for bands over the years. So a lot of things look a bit different. There are also some new and old unseen works included and some works from as far back as 1990. Foreword is by my Scald comrade Pete Dempsey and the endwords have been eloquently penned by Martin Walkyier.
