Crowd Noises 2

23 06 2015

The first book I published was called Crowd Noises. I was heavily influenced at the time by T.S. Eliot and Bob Dylan. I hadn’t as yet discovered Chuck Berry. These illustrations were part of the ebook I published to reintroduce these poems to a yawning public. But my mom liked them.

Dan Bergeron

In his Face of the City series, Toronto-based artist Dan Bergeron (aka Fauxreel) examines the identity of cities by juxtaposing the “abrasive charm found in the distressed surfaces of modern cities with the intimate familiarity of the prominent features of the human face”.

I love this guy’s work. But I don’t recognize any of the places he has worked on assuming these pieces are in Toronto. But then maybe he works on the east side of the Don River. (We don’t talk about those folks in Toronto) {I actually do know a few of these places but I don’t want my mom to find out.}

Wilfred Satty

23 06 2015

Satty died on opening night at a show he was never meant to give in an accident that everyone who ever went to Sattys studio worried might happen to themselves, namely falling down the precarious ladder one had to make ones descent on to reach the bunker cave.

Now its 1998 I am sitting writing this story far away from San Francisco. American students rank lower in academics than any industrial country on earth. American citizens celebrate the American dream by eating out of garbage cans in every city of every state of the union. American homeless are a new class, along with American homeowners. The President of the United States, Clinton, who our deluded Psychedelic minds believed might be the first president with an expanded consciousness, has just sold American nuclear secrets to China for some cheap election money. Condemning us all to a new future of thermonuclear duck and cover neurosis. Something is very wrong in America the land of the free and the home of the brave.
The Monsters do rule America now
Satty was right. But nobody listened.
Satty was a noble man.
He fell down a hole and died

Michael Bowen – May 1998

Satty was amongst a large group of artists/bohemians in the San Francisco area in the 1960s. When I saw collages at that time, there was a very good chance that they were Satty’s.
