GI Festival Southside: Everything Flows
For Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2012 Patricia Fleming Projects launch Everything Flows, a limited edition EP of nine tracks and artwork from the experimental art into music scene, emerging from the Glasgow visual art sector over the last fifteen years. Tracks from established visual artists including Ross Sinclair (ex The Soup Dragons) and Turner Prize winner Douglas Gordon (in collaboration with Chicks on Speed) sit alongside well-known artist's bands. Timeless tracks and the voice of Sue Tompkins ensure bands like Life Without Buildings, who have not recorded together since 2002, maintain a strong underground fanbase across the globe. Almost all of the artists on the album write and perform their work solo or as part of a band, a few like Douglas Morland (Older Lover, to name just one incarnation) play in other bands across the city. Everything Flows brings together art sector favourites Muscles of Joy, Gummy Stumps, Hassle Hound and Tut Vu Vu who are popular with art and music audiences alike. Everything Flows delivers many unreleased tracks and special live performances including 'Cars' by David Sherry. Together with artwork Everything Flows is an invitation to a scene shaped by Glasgow artists who use sound and music as part of their arts practice.
"There's probably not a band in Glasgow that doesn't have at least one member who studied at Glasgow Art School" Jim Lambie (ex The Boy Hairdressers).
