And Away We Go!!!

A Happy Mandrill

Update:

All systems are a go, go, go! Emporium Purgatorio, via our *Unofficial Alan Moore site, is actively seeking/promoting Indie Comics, Indie Artists, and those that may have something to SAY through their art about our current climate of…well, of needing a ‘Mandrillifesto‘.

All characters are real. No names will be changed to protect anyone. Oh, and when I took 20 things and added another 3 from a friend, well wouldn’t you know! Magical!

Please, VOICES ARE NEEDED! Jump in on our comments, Artist’s Job Board, send an article or a revue. Make a comic. Sell your work here with no strings attached. Write a poem. Tell us to fuck off. *to be honest, this last one wouldn’t feel very good, but we support your right to give us the bird. we’re fans of aviary anyways.

To respectfully quote some of our favorite people… Watch This Space…

Arts Lab Northampton Local Radio Interview

Arts Lab Northampton Logo

Alan Moore, Megan Lucas & Co. Talk Arts Lab

Recently Inspiration FM 107.8, a local Northampton community radio station, had Alan Moore, Megan Lucas, Yoshi and Dan in the studio to speak on the Arts Lab Northampton in particular, and the importance/significance of Arts Labs in general. Below is the entire interview , which contrary to the length of the clip is much shorter.

Interview starts at 4:25 and ends at 15:30. Within the brief back and forth, be on the lookout for a very important Alan Moore statement. There is also an invitation to one and all to join an Arts Lab, start an Arts Lab, and ‘counter’ the foisted culture as much as we all can. *loose synopsis 🙂

Alan Moore had 14 strips of ‘St. Pancras Panda’ published in the underground newspaper, Back-Street Bugle: Oxford’s Other Newspaper, from February, 1978 to March, 1979. St. Pancras Panda is a parody of ‘Paddington Bear’, whose satirical adventures mirrored the current political and socioeconomic climate that Moore was immeresed in. Along with St. Pancras Panda, Moore also had various other contributions including ads for the ‘Fortean Times’, single panels of himself with his family, and ‘Moeby Palliative: The Paraplegics Push-Bike and His Faithless Sidekick YC Ron in The Sensuous Beachball’. There are also numerous mentions from the editor, growing more stern as the time passed, of why Alan’s St. Pancras strip was missing once again from that issue.
