It's just a 3 minute song, it doesn't last very long, but it'll take you to a place I know you'd rather be

I would have mentioned this sooner, but we've (pleasingly) been very busy lately, so I have not got round to it! Anyway, Emily and I are part of an exhibition called Editions of You! The exhibition is themed around artists and musicians working together, and includes some musical zines, hand made record sleeves, and also a kareoke booth, which the gallery commissioned Emily and I to make! I absolutely love kareoke, so I was thrilled that we were asked. The booth will be playing A Film about Poo, and you can sing along with a friend as there are two microphones. Emily and I went off to Oxford (for that is where the exhibition is being held) on Wednesday to install it. We also met the Editions of You team - Lisa, Ellis and Helen - and they were lovely. It was a really fun day, and here is a picture of the finished article:

And here's Emily giving it a test run, hahahaha:

Anyway, tonight is the night of the private view. I really should have mentioned it before, but like I said there is a lot on at the moment and the days have zipped by.

And there's more! Emily and I will be at the exhibition in Oxford, hosting our own stall at the zine fayre. On Saturday April 9th from 11am-6pm you will find us with sweets and also flipbooks, badges, zines and more. Please come and say hello, or even better, buy something. We will put it in a stripy yellow bag for you.

And there's even more! Also on the day of the zine fayre, Billy Payne of Puppet Orchestra will be playing a solo set, which will include a live performance of A Song about Poo from the animation A Film about Poo. It will in fact be the live debut of the song - imagine that! Billy will also be singing other songs from our previous zine Now We Are, and probably some more songs too that are not from any zine, just from his own creative mind. Billy hasn't done a solo set for a long time, so you are all in for a real treat.

So come to the exhibition! Here are the details:
Saturday 26th March - Sunday 24th April
O3 Gallery, Oxford
