The Hardy Tree Gallery is an intimate space situated in the railway arches just behind St Pancras station at 119 Pancras Road. The curator is Cameron Maxwell from Toronto.
There are over 60 pieces on display which includes paintings, drawings, photographs, posters and collages which employ a variety of materials. In addition to this there is a series of short independent films for viewing. Some of the film footage has been integrated by Bernard Sumner into the visuals used at the recent New Order shows.
Pieces of particular interest to Cerysmatic readers...
~ New Order Los Angeles poster by John Baldessari
~ Float, 1970 by Robert Breer (Iain - how would you describe this curio?!)
~ The Perfect Kiss poster by Barbara Kruger
~ New Order 1987 poster by Lawrence Weiner
~ 'Temporarily removed' Green tinted clear acrylic 2005 by Anna Blessman and Peter Saville
All the above items are originals (for the avoidance of doubt) and available for purchase with 30% of the proceeds being donated to Michael Shamberg's medical care fund.

X-O-Dus were discovered by Rob Gretton who invited them to record an extended 12" dub single (replete with Saville-designed sleeve) which had 'See Them A Come' on the b-side. The group disbanded in 1981 without releasing an album so this digitally remastered archive collection with the single plus various unreleased demos is most welcome.
Watch this space for an X-O-Dus competition.

In summer 2010, the AV Festival commissioned him to compose a work for the 2012 spring Equinox, to be staged at Durham Cathedral. Sadly Christopherson died in November 2010 before he could complete the work.
Wishful Thinking is a music, film and performance event in celebratory remembrance of his life and work. It includes the premiere of three performance sketches with Christopherson‘s original collaborators for the commission: visual artist Alex Rose, sound recordist Chris Watson (ex-Cabaret Voltaire) and vocalist Attila Csihar plus TG's Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti premiering new live remixes.
Wishful Thinking: In Remembrance Of Peter Christopherson (1955–2010) is at the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle on 17 March 2012. Tickets priced £20 Stalls / £22.50 Circle are on sale now.

The answer to the question: "What was the first 7" single release on LTM?" was Een Kus by, yes, you guessed it, Minny Pops.
Thanks to everyone who entered the competition.
Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.
Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
