Has sentimental remembrance met its Waterloo? 4.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. Artists of the time – such as Turner and Byron – showed the full horror of its slaughter. Let’s not resort to fake empathy or cheap mawkishness now It was a bloody national sacrifice, and we must mourn the men who gave their lives for this country. This is a year to be proud of them. That’s the conclusion of an article about the Battle of Waterloo in the Daily Telegraph : “The bodies still lying beneath the fields of Waterloo deserve remembrance.” I hope this is not the first volley in a redcoated charge of narcissistic patriotism as we approach the 200th anniversary of Waterloo on 18 June this year . The earth is covered thick with other clay, Which her own clay shall cover, heaped and pent, Rider and horse, – friend, foe, – in one red burial ...
Viet Cong: banned from playing because of their name 4.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The Canadian art rockers have had a show in Ohio cancelled because their name ‘deeply offends’ some people. So what about Gang of Four or the Dead Kennedys? What’s in a name? Quite a lot if you’re post-punk noise outfit Viet Cong, who have just had one of their shows cancelled in Ohio due to controversy surrounding their moniker. Gig promoter Ivan Krasnov took to the Oberlin ‘Sco Facebook page to apologise for booking an act whose name “deeply offends and hurts Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American communities, both in Oberlin and beyond”. He extended his apology “to anyone hurt or made uncomfortable by the name and its connotations”. Patrons of the club have been responding to the statement on the club’s page. “This is how I’ve always felt about the band Gang of Four and how they might be offensive to Chinese folks who lost family during the Cultural Revolution”, said one Facebook user, presumably with tongue firmly in cheek. Others asked whether the promoters of the Dionysus Discotheque, where the band ...

Cult of the Spankers: the X-rated artists who turned Times Square into smut central 4.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
US authorities tried to ban them, but a gang of artists, models and writers made a living from dirty books sold under-the-counter in 1950s New York. Enter a world of Raw Dames and superheroes Raw Dames to Swish Bottom: X-rated illustrations banned in the 1950s – in pictures Seven years ago, I was browsing through a secondhand bookstore in Manhattan when I came across an old paperback with an extraordinary drawing on the cover, clearly designed to be sexy, if not actually pornographic. It showed a woman walking on a bright orange beach in leather knee-high boots with two muscleheads leering at her semi-naked figure. Its name: Surf Broad. I’m a collector of outsider art – anything authentic and forgotten fascinates me – so I started scouring bookshops and flea markets for others like it. Researching my find, I learned from a book called Sin-A-Rama that this odd cover was drawn by Eugene Bilbrew , an African-American artist who had lived in my neighbourhood, near Times Square, in the 1950s, and that dozens ...
