These four photos are by the writer (and Grievous Angel contributor) Gary Every who says "I have been photographing graffiti for many years with a special subset of Native American graffiti. The photos are mine but the graffiti is done by a guy named Chip Thomas. He is a black guy who has been serving the Navajo as a doctor for decades but began a project to reclaim abandoned buildings by wallpapering his photos of cultural pride atop the rural decay. He goes by the name of Jetsonorama."
The Navajo Nation’s reservation overlaps Arizona and New Mexico. These photos were taken at Lake Powell and Wupatki.
Great video here from Music Matters about Delta blues legend (and founder member of the Forever 27 Club) Robert Johnson, who we'll be covering in the next Weird Tales Radio Show...
Reorganising my office - here are some vinyls that haven't been near a turntable for many years. Bonus prize for anyone who saw Curved Air and/or The Pretty Things live – that'll be me then.
