Art exhibition review – Victor Willing: Visions at Hastings Contemporary

Oct 19 2019

Yesterday I took a train from Waterloo East and whizzed off to Hastings to attend an exclusive preview of Victor Willing: Visions, a major retrospective of the mid-century British painter, at Hastings Contemporary which is now open until 5th January 2020. 

This is the first retrospective of work by British artist Victor Willing (1928-1988), representing each period of his career.

Chatting to Malcolm Bruce about The Music of Cream and how rock music can start a revolution

Oct 03 2019

It doesn’t happen every day to have a wonderful conversation with a person you deeply connect with at so many levels, let alone when that person is Malcolm Bruce, the son of Jack Bruce, one of the most iconic rock musicians the world has ever seen. Jack Bruce along with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker were Cream, a band with a chemical explosion like no other, the blueprint for every supergroup to follow and the heavy blues precursor to Hendrix, Zeppelin and so much more. Fifty years since their earth-shaking debut album, the bloodlines of that hallowed trilogy come together to pay tribute to Cream’s legendary four-album reign over the psychedelic frontier of the late 1960s. Kofi Baker (son of Ginger) and Malcolm Bruce unite with Will Johns (Eric’s nephew by marriage and son of Zeppelin/ Stones/ Hendrix engineer Andy) to unleash the sound that roused a generation: songs like “Spoonful”,Strange Brew”,Sunshine of Your Love”,White Room”, “Crossroads” and “Badge” are performed by the next generation of Cream, master musicians in their own right whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit and legacy.
