Great blog Ben!

I love these 'vintage' (?) obscure bands/acts you're coming up with. How did you find out about them?

I can already see the links between your paintings and these 'characters' in some way. Almost like resurrecting the past, in colour....great!

I want to leave a comment but was finding it really difficult to know what to say because in all honesty I never really listen or have listened to anything like the Rev. But it's great to listen to and know about him.

The only possible music I can relate to that I have heard once ever is Frank Zappa - but he's part of a completely different um, well, his music is completely different isn't it. I think its the voice actually that made me think of him. But if I listen to just the music without the lyrics then I can even go as far as Ike and Tina Turner? maybe?

Your blog is very interesting and enlightening! Thank you

Really like the fact you have put music on your blog. I love The Loins. I saw some of Billy Childish`s oil painting straight on to rough wood at the Gardner centre in Brighton last year. It was all so unpretentious and honest, full of life,you couldn`t help but be drawn to it.
