hi just an update on all this! we have a solid foundation of funds to start up, set up as a co-op and are constantly on the look out for suitable buildings.  however London is vast and we're coming up constantly against location problems, developers etc in terms of finding the dream place. 

If you're interested in helping out at all we really need loadsa people doing the following:
- scoping out suitable buildings in your area (we want to cover all inner london boroughs); shut up pubs, community centres, general use buildings and fitting as much as possible to the required spec: http://diyspaceforlondon.org/help-us-find-a-building/
- planning bike rides scouting out empties in groups, noting down estate agent numbers (a lot of these things arent online)
- getting on estate agent lists (if you have any experience leasing commercial property we want your help!), scouring gumtree, local papers etc.

- any suitable buildings you see send us an email we can look up the owner & chase up agents our end

these are things we're working on in the collective but we're always welcome and encouraging to anyone willing to put in 5 mins to help us out, any info you have whatsoever send it over to diyspaceforlondon @ gmail.com

there'll be another open meeting coming up soon!

this band is so great

Is anybody else also fucking disgusted with 'Exhibition B' stuff at the Barbican?

Yes, and your final point about 'Couple in a cage' kinda hammers home how disastrously shit this is as a piece of art.  I can't help but feel that these boards of white men (Arts Council particularly included in this) with terrible taste and no ideas are coming more and more prevalent. I was at work practically next door during the protest and the entire street was filled with riot police & vans which was pretty ridiculous (it was a really small protest!).  The Barbican cancelling it due to 'safety' and entirely missing the point (most probably wanting to) is something I guess.

there's always more 'famous' people in a genre/movement though, no? its not too dissimilar to someone knowing little about punk and referring to sid vicious?

never been a particularly massive bikini kill etc fan but i really enjoyed the punk singer film, i was reading the everett true interview with KH in the guardian and he pointed out that there werent any male talking heads in the film, which was intentional - i hadnt noticed this at all, she refers to ian mackaye or thurston moore as being typical men who were also involved in the stories of scenes in the film, and its interesting that theyre much more famous possibly than any of the women and would that have skewed the story at all?  But yeah the film was really good and had a lot of really interesting refreshing points about women in punk and the public eye.

i really cant the "customer service" and attitude at ms cupcake in brixton but the sandwiches (BLT, sausage sandwiches, hoisin duck on bergen bread i think) are amazing.
