The guys from Eastwood guitars were in London at the end of October and passed by "Git HQ" where Colin & Malka were presented with the super Airline guitar & bass you see them tastefully modelling here. In addition the Eastwood crew shot a video interview with C&M about Githead & "Art Pop". It can be viewed on the downloads page of this site.
Our friend Renate Ziegermann (partner of London based blogger & podcaster The Cartoonist) has edited together a Mini Documentary shot at Bar Music Hall earlier this year and based around the song Profile. It can be downloaded on the downloads page of this site.
Our Max and his girlfriend Didi have done us proud (whilst displaying impeccable taste!) running the annual Damloop (Amsterdam to Zandaam) race in their GIT- t-shirts. Whilst we cannot confirm or deny whether this means that we will be official supplier of racewear to next year's marathon season one has to ask the question "what serious althlete would want to be seen strutting his stuff without his or her GIT- shirt?" Best get yours before they run out!
With the launch of posteverything mkII digital versions of the 3 Githead CD releases Headgit, Profile and Art Pop are now exclusively available to download. Unfortunately we've yet to discover a digital format for making t-shirts available, but we'll let you know when we do :)
One of Malka's images (of Centrepoint) has been included in the BBC's Britian In Pictures series curated by top TV photographer Tom Ang. The imagage is drawn from the pool uploaded at her enormously popular flickr page which she maintains under her visual artist name Maya Newman.
This particular video is entirely sourced from material shot on cameras & mobile phones (no "proper" video cams involved!) Not only that but members sent in their submissions from their varying locations (many thanks to YouSendIt!) so we have images from Madrid, London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Brighton, Paris, Rotterdam and probably some other places we've forgotten. This and the video to Drop are also available through YouTube and Last FM so if you want to stick them on your Facebook Super Wall you can!
We've put a few pictures up in the gallery from the recent spate of gigs. If you were at one of the shows, don't be shy about sending us more images to compliment the ones we have already! Meanwhile you might like to check out a couple of flickr pages showing some images from the shows etc. here and here.
As previewed in the last newsletter there are now new additions to the downloads page. These include a new Art Pop desktop/ wallpaper, the video to Drop and a "re-imagining" of Githead performing To Have & To Hold at the QEH in March 2005. Enjoy!
Art Pop is now available to be streamed in Last FM's streaming player. For those that don't know it, Last FM is is site which tracks an individual's digital music plays (computer or mp3 player) building up a profile of their personal taste. A "radio station" then becomes available based on the taste of those who's taste is similar to your own. The quality is more "radio" than "hi fi" but it can be a good way to discover new music. Art Pop has its own page as does the Last FM Githead group.
Parts two & three of the interview with Colin & Malka by London based blogger & podcaster The Cartoonist has now been posted. You can find them here. Those that prefer can also subscribe direct in iTunes. See below for more info.
