eddie argos - a true gentleman of pop

so, in my attempts to get contributors on board for this advent exhibition [did i mention that i'm curating an advent-themed show...?] i contacted a whole load of different artists and creatives - including a little personal wish list of people who i didn't really expect would reply, but thought were worth a punt - nothing ventured, nothing gained and all that.

so yesterday i got a very lovely email from edie argos, lead singer of art brut and glamchop [amongst others], apologetically and very politely declining the invitation to contribute to the show [he's off on tour to the states very soon]

eddie argos, you are a gent.

more lloydy-love. here's the poster he's designed for the advent show.

the exhibition is getting excitingly, and frighteningly close now - but i finally have every theme allocated and am working with a local school on a project to involve them in the show, which is really cool.

please do go and have a look at the exhibition blog; leave a comment, tell your friends. it's going to be great...
