Hi all!
Here's the music video for the song "You Will Never Know" from the new album "Hover" by my friend, the amazing songwriter Stanley Brinks.

Please enjoy!

Stanley Brinks "You Will Never Know" - OFFICIAL VIDEO from Toby Goodshank on Vimeo.



on youtube



From the b.y_records.com:

..."in paralllel with his musical output with Herman Düne, he played solo gigs under his real name, or using the acronym AHD or even under one of a host of pseudonyms he'd taken (Ben Dope, Ben Haschish, Klaus Bong, John Trawling, John Andreas, Lord Stanislas...).

Stanley/André has always been rather reticent when it comes to engaging with technology, the internet or the music business. In complete autonomy, he produces around 4 albums a year, on his own label, Radical Baboon. This solitary approach has never precluded him achieving worldwide recognition, since in the past he's often toured his work around Europe, the UK and the United states to an appreciative audience.

By following this path, Stanley has managed to transform his ambitions to create music on a more personal scale into a veritable way of life: simple recordings that require little in the way of technical logistics, intimate live shows in small venues or even private apartments... a bohemian life of creativity and travel.

His first album under the name Stanley Brinks, Dank U, was included in Inrocks top 50 best albums of 2008. And more recently, Stanley Brinks and the Wave Picture also elicited a strong critical response in the media."

The Baby Skins now on bandcamp

Do y’all remember The Baby Skins? That’s the name of Crystal Madrilejos and Angela Carlucci’s band. Sometimes joined by James Broughel on bass and Steven Mertens on drums, they played around NYC from 2001 to 2008, recorded and self-released their own music, and sang on some Herman Dune LPs. They made some of my favourite songs of all time, and I feel super-lucky to have seen so many of their shows over the years.

Their music has been out of circulation for a minute, so with their blessing I’ll be making some of their releases available for download (with all proceeds going directly to The Baby Skins) and free streaming at http://thebabyskins.bandcamp.com/

This month we’ll start with their first full band release (which was a three song demo) and their contribution to Dashan Coram’s double disc set, “A Luv-A-Lot Compilation.”

Please enjoy them. I’ll give a shout when the next batch is up.

Love,
TG

Leisure Inferno



Leisure Inferno
an exhibit by 3MB
(Macaulay Culkin, Toby Goodshank, Adam Green)
Le Poisson Rouge, NYC
Sept. 14th - Dec. 15th 2012

all works by 3MB

LEISURE INFERNO

The art collective known as 3MB is comprised of three fresh young artists named Toby Goodshank, Macaulay Culkin, and Adam Green. 3MB, which is short for “Three Men and a Baby," first met each other while independently attending a Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch concert in 1991. Since then the group has been living the dream, hosting raging art parties in which the three of them work vigorously on the same canvas simultaneously and making (mostly) beautiful art together in their studio, which also doubles as Mack’s living room. Amongst the foldout poker tables and year-round Christmas tree lights they dish out their own unique brand of painting, drawing, paper-mâchéing, cubist studies, Greco-Roman sculpture re-interpretations, and cupcake decorating among many-many other artistic disciplines. One of their more recent projects was the building of the sets for Adam’s film The Wrong Ferarri, most notably the sets for The Enchanted Forest, Doggie Dare, and Nintendo Records. They all claim to be the Steve Guttenberg of the group.

It wasn’t until earlier this year, after having a chat with the fine staff at (Le) Poisson Rouge (LPR), that 3MB decided to show their work publicly for the very first time ever as a group. The fruit of those initial discussions is this very show, Leisure Inferno. Knowing that LPR is the kind of place that serves art and alcohol 3MB set out to make a show that embraced those traits, making art you’d like to see in that context. There is a strong current of nostalgia running through Leisure Inferno, with many archetypes from the artists’ youth. However, many of these of characters and people from their pasts are put into current, fantastical settings that they would never inhabit, facing situations and dilemmas that would otherwise be foreign to them. In Leisure Inferno nothing is off limits. Jonny Quest and Haji getting gay married. Seinfeld and Kramer posing nude for the Masters of the Universe. Pinhead at a disco luau. Mario Cantone and Bazooka Joe taking a soak with the Ark of the Covenant while in E. Honda’s Japanese bathhouse. Kurt Cobain as a modern-day hacker. Dogs playing poker with an alien bug. A Korn concert attended by Waldo (of Where's Waldo), E.T., Luigi, and the devil himself, along with a cast of thousands. Needless to say no door is left unopened and no stone unturned in this fun, yet powerful exhibit.

3MB hopes that you all enjoy the show.

Island Lane



time again for another installment of Mammary Lane,
the game in which we challenge each other
to draw things from memory.

Preston axed me to draw Muppet pianist Rowlf attacking Pet Detective Ace Ventura



I asked Preston to draw far-away galactic bounty hunter Boba Fett sharing a surf board with heraldic extreme sports superhero Silver Surfer.
