PDW 
 
 
Today, 19 February 2013, we've got the terrible news that Brendan's good friend and
drummer of the legendary Brendan Croker & The Serious Offenders, 
Patrick De Witte (PDW) passed away.
 
he taught me to curse in the ghentse dialect, call frenchmen 'mon 
petit poulet pret a cuir', pass the duvel test with style, call salad 
items 'tuin' and wave my arms around when talking passionately on any 
subject.
without an 'off' switch in his body, he more than once made me laugh 
'till i wet myself: a complete and utter bastard but he was OUR 
bastard and now, with a near 30 year size whole in punched through my 
life, i'm as lost as a lost thing on lost day.
allez vooruit pdw, allez vooruit that man...

"The Entente Chordiale"

So many wars, so many jokes, so many politicians... so what?
Divided by language, water and years, united in voice
and guitar... that's what!
 

Tant de guerres, tant de blagues, tant de politiciens... Alors quoi?
Divisés par la langue, l'eau et les années, unis en voix et
guitare... C'est ça!

"Framed Events - visual art by Ian Taylor and Brendan Croker"

Friday October 8th, 2010

7pm to 8pm

Refreshments and music

Ian is a well known artist and sculptor living in Bradford.Later this year he retires as a teacher at Bradford College where he has shaped the future careers of many of the important Artists who have emerged from there.

 Brendan is possibly better known as an outstanding musician with his own band, the Five O'clock Shadows and as co founder of the Notting Hillbillies as well as being regular feature of the Mekons and Tasmin Archer's line ups. But he trained as a visual artist and has regularly shows in Europe including most recently at the Ghent Festival.

 Ian and Brendan are old friends and their work sits well together. They repertoire includes many of the techniques used by surrealists and dadists. But rather than creating surreal worlds their witty, wry and beautifully crafted works more often point up the delicious absurdities of the world outside our doors....

 I hope you can make the opening, if not please try to catch it before it ends on 7th November. We are open Thursday to Sunday.
