My friend James Brooks has a new solo exhibition on at the moment, so if you happen to be in or near Galway in Ireland I recommend you drop in for a look. Although James is now well established as a visual artist of high regard, I first knew him through his involvement as singer and guitarist of Exeter's finest Appliance. There always seemed to be a strong connection between the sonic aesthetic of the group and James' work. A certain precision and sparcity, a skill at balancing degrees of emptiness. Anyway, details below, plus an old Appliance track taken from last year's extensive 'Re-Conditioned ' collection.
