Ancient shapes and fun sponge
Ancient Shapes & Fun Sponge

Date: 19 October 2018

Location: The Tin 1-4, The Canal Basin, St Nicholas St, Coventry CV1 4LY

Time: 20:00 - 23:00

Punks and the punk-less together find common ground in these electric folk-tales of smeared foliage. See them live to understand.

The heart-like form in the cracked muddy ground. The faces turned away from the fire. The unwanted flowers of spring – Ancient Shapes celebrate and shake with the supernatural under-dogs, they sing abrasively as the bottom feeders, no-eyed from years of pitch darkness. In this, they bring a new source of light; with an urgency that can only be described as “punk”.
Daniel Romano, (writer, producer, performer, engineer, mixer, mastering engineer, artist) of the group “Ancient Shapes” is also known for his rock and roll and sometimes folk and sometimes country and western act that wears his birth moniker. Romano has been a highly prolific and independent force in today’s ungarbaged musical and lyrical output for the last 15 years. He is reluctantly awarded and renowned. Some say genius others say trash-boy.


Ancient shapes, now supporting their sophomore long player “silent rave” are shifting the language of punk. “Silent Rave” is a collection of raw, lucid poems, exploring various crevasses of love, the natural world, and also more love. Romano shrieks with immediacy (as he never has in his other endeavours) over the bubble gum power pop landscape he creates for these recordings.
Punks and the punk-less together find common ground in these electric folk-tales of smeared foliage. See them live to understand. Listen to the record and fill in the gaps in your creative brain. You’re good at it!
Critics like it. People like it too.

“Silent Rave” by Ancient Shapes is available world wide on October 5th 2018 from You’ve Changed Records.

Journeys With ‘The Waste Land’ Exhibition

Date: 15 September 2018 - 18 November 2018

Every day

Location: Coventry - Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Jordan Well, Coventry City Centre, CV1 5QP

Journeys with ‘The Waste Land' explores the contemporary significance of TS Eliot’s seminal poem and the way it has resonated with artists over the years.

A visual response for Coventry to TS Eliot’s poem

The Waste Land is a major work of 20th century literature, written by TS Eliot in 1921 in the aftermath of the First World War. Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ is an exhibition led by independent curator, Michael Tooby, and organised in collaboration with Turner Contemporary in Margate, by the Mead Gallery and the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in association with Coventry Cathedral. This exhibition explores the contemporary significance of TS Eliot’s seminal poem and the way it has resonated with artists over the years.

The works selected for exhibition have been researched by a group of volunteers drawn from the Coventry area and include historical and contemporary works by artists including Peter Blake, Jacob Epstein, Elisabeth Frink, RB Kitaj, Percy Wyndham Lewis, Paul Nash, George Shaw, John Stezaker, Graham Sutherland and JMW Turner. Through these works, the exhibition explores themes within Eliot’s poem of journeys and fragmentation. The selection also makes reference to Coventry’s history as a city fragmented by, and rebuilt upon, the ruins of war.
