This Friday I will be DJing some vintage French pop, Gallic psyche and musique electronique at >

Fri 20 Nov / 7pm-10.45pm / £5 entry
The Observer Building, 53 Cambridge Road, Hastings, East Sussex, TN34 1DT

At 7pm prompt there will be a film screening of Truffaut’s Jules et Jim
This will be followed by dancing (possibly) to my L’Amour Electronique DJ set


I’ve been hunkered down finishing new paintings for a group show at 45 Park Lane next month. All very last minute, as I was only approached to take part 3 weeks ago. Hence the lack of posts/updates recently.

10 Nov 15 – 07 Jan 16 / Group Exhibition
WAC winners Dominic Bradnum & Kirsten Baskett with 45 Park Lane Artists Group
45 Park Lane, Mayfair, London, W1K 1PN

I will be showing 4 new works, including this one:

Neon Graffiti (For Guy Debord & The Situationist International), 2015, oil and mixed media on canvas, 75cm x 100cm

Later in the month, I have been coaxed out of DJ semi-retirement to play some French records at the inaugural Hastings Mon Amour night. Top billing will be a screening of Truffaut’s sublime ménage à trois Jules et Jim, with my questionable DJ skills before and after.

I’m also releasing a new print edition in the coming weeks. More on that soon.

Keep an eye on my Twitter feed for ever so slightly more up-to-date bulletins

Those of you who keep a keen eye on the site feeds to the right, or who follow my L’Amour Electronique blog will know I’ve been more than a little tardy in posting this.

Here is another hour(ish) of vintage French pop, synthesized sounds and electronic delights for your listening pleasure (with part 2 linked at the foot of this post).

And so the curtain closes on our little monthly soirees. But we intend to go out on a wave of string-fuelled swansongs, epic album-closers, end-credit crescendos and last waltzes.
