Beautiful Losers

Beautiful Losers

Just a heads-up to let you know that Beautiful Losers is coming out on DVD in the UK next week. A portrait of the group of artists who emerged from one New York shopfront gallery – including Mike Mills, Margaret Kilgallen, Shepard Fairey, Harmony Korine and Barry McGee – Aaron Rose’s film was a popular draw at the last Flatpack. Judging from the uk website they’re pushing the skate angle pretty heavily, and it’s also showing at the ICA until Monday.
A couple of other updates from FP3:
> Let The Right One In is also out on DVD;
> David O’Reilly has gone and made a U2 video;
> and the Moon Dreams programme will be making a slight return at the Green Man festival this weekend, alongside British Sea Power, Outer Sight and the unruly Sugarfoot ladies.
Ps:: A couple of additional updates
> David O’Reilly has posted a version of his Flatpack talk online;
> Both Helen and Shifty are now out on DVD;
> and turntable whiz Jim Le Fevre has a new website. And a new baby. Congratulations Jim!
