Folk music by all sister band, The Staves

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Music on Friday 12 April 2013

The Staves are three sisters, singing folk. It sounds great, and the advantage of sisterly proximity whilst growing up really shows in their gorgeous harmonies. There’s some lovely instrumentation going on, too, as well as some fine songwriting. Perfect for these chilly days we’re having here in Blighty at the moment.

Huge urban tribal murals by David Shillinglaw

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Art on Tuesday 9 April 2013

I discovered David Shillinglaw’s awesome paintings by chance the other day as I walked past a cafe near my house: I glanced in the window and was immediately spellbound. I went inside and fell in love with with his rough lettering, bold paint, abstract forms and use of wood. It seems he does a lot […]

Experimental metal music by Meshuggah

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Music on Monday 8 April 2013

Meshuggah sure make some interesting music. It’s great to see a band really exploring what they can do within the framework of a certain style, pushing themselves and the genre whilst remaining true to what makes metal great. Utilising crazy timings and rhythms and 8-string guitars, it’s all decideldy experimental but never lets up on […]

Awesome hand screen printed posters by Petting Zoo

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Design on Monday 8 April 2013

You can spot a Petting Zoo poster a mile off: fine forms and tasty shapes, delightful restarint and hefty usage of animals. I love the angles and how they maximise the inherent roughness that screenprinting has if you let it. They’ve made countless gig posters for all kinds of bands that really stand out from […]

Kerry Hyndman is a great exponent of classy modern illustration, all chunky, rough, angular shapes with clean lines and some boss texture, along with a fine line in glorious shades of blue. Ain’t that a lovely blue?

Design and illustration by Kai and Sunny

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Art on Thursday 20 December 2012

Kai and Sunny produce some of the most distinctive work you could hope to see in the fields of design and illustration: intricate, graceful, and simultaneously simple, yet complex and understated. They work tirelessly in a range of different areas but are perhaps best known for their book covers for the likes of David Mitchell and their recent, large-scale black and white prints. I just love their stuff.

The Jim Jones Revue: Rock n’roll turned up a notch

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Music on Monday 10 December 2012

I caught this band by accident when I stumbled into the Crossroads Tent late one night at Secret Garden Party this year. I was blown away – not my usual cuppa tea but they were everything you want in a live performance. Pure, undiluted old-style rock n’roll but turned up to 11. Frenzied, fast and […]

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Design on Saturday 8 December 2012

I love Steve Simpson’s illustration work and I especially love these chilli sauce packaging designs, where he eschews his usual clean, digital lines in favour of a rougher, more painterly aesthetic.

Matthew Cook: Illustrations in a time of war

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Illustration on Saturday 8 December 2012

There can be few greater draughtsmen than Matthew Cook. He first came to my attention when I saw him give a talk about his work as the Times’ war artist in Iraq – stunning drawings and amazing stories. He also does some rather fine illustrated maps.

Negative feedback turned into limited edition posters

Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in New Design on Friday 7 December 2012

This website is just great. What’s your best bit of worst feedback from a client? Ireland’s creative community got together to make theirs into limited edition posters in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital, and the results, billed as ‘a creative catharsis’ make for a wealth of ingeneously rendered hilarity. A lot of frustration released, you feel, and a lot of money raised for charity – fantastic all round.
