6 September, 2011
Tuesday 6th September 6pm at Rough Trade
'Quark, Strangeness and Charm'
Robert Rubbish, co-founder of 'LE GUN Magazine' and one half of Victorian Punk Revivalists 'The Rubbishmen' presents his latest solo exhibition of drawings and paintings based on facial hair, cosmic space rock, and apocryphal record covers.
There will be a number of portraits on display of musicians who famously sported facial hair. The said facial hair being acquired from joke shops. Robert is inspired a lot by these comedy emporiums and calls some of his work 'JOKE SHOP POP ART'.
The apocryphal record covers will represent Robert's desire to find albums that he has been searching for for years such as the complete works of Egyptian Ska or the greatest hits from the cosmic toilet.
Also launching on the 6thSeptember will be issue zero of Robert's new zine 'LOS PISTOLOS' - a low tech publication with a punky London Mexican vibe heavily influenced by underground comics and punk zines of yesteryear.
On display until 30th September.
