Here's an update from Jowe, posted on 21 April on the Yahoo group:
Theres a link here to a german web-site report featuring a photo of a painting of mine, plus a fun photo of me and Lee McFadden performing an acoustic set at the opening party of my current exhibition at Praxis Hagen Gallery in Berlin on 5-4-07: http://avi.antville.org/stories/1607950
The opening itself was pretty wild. I was DJing some of the time, and eventually admitted defeat and ducked out at about 1.30pm in the morning. My guests left some time later till the booze had all gone, and raided some bars in the area. Phew!
Jeff and Marina, the other 2 band-members in Angel Racing Food to make it on this trip, turned up the following day at Tegel airport and we feasted together in Kreutzberg at the home of our dear friend Connie. We played a ripper of a set the following day at the curiously-named "Westgermany" club, formerly a gynaecological clinic it seemed. We then proceeded to take in the delights of a weird bar next door. Some kind of fight broke out but I catagorically deny our involvement, of course! Great fun. Nice poster for the gig. Thanks to Ran Huber the promoter, and Paul at the club.
I also took in a brilliant exhibition of the work of german artist Hannah Hoch at the Berlinische Gallery with my friend Ellen. Fantastic collages and paintings. Hannah was in the Dada scene, and later associated withe the Fluxus movement. Fantastic week! I hope to return to Berlin in the summer, then go down to Kassel to check out the Documenta art festival.
