Los Angeles artists Richard Hawkins and Aaron Curry collaborate as cowtown jamboree-style duo “Curry & Hawkins”. Curry’s original compositions on guitar, keyboard and drumkit dry-hump ham radio spaghetti western soundtrack static as Hawkins’s mashed potato side-dish of honkytonk crooners and 70s PopRocks™ anthymns launch UFOs that circle like buzzards overhead. A catatonic mental patient narrates all: Jerry Lee Lewis and Grace Jones, Nino Rota and Styx, Dr Pepper™ and Thorazine™. “Tuff Tiddy”, a half oath for “tough shit”, “Tough titty said the kitty when the milk went dry.”
Released on Jacuzzi Brains.

Design Office began in 1980 as a way to practice art outside of the gallery system. The first projects involved friends’ apartments. D.O. was to be sort of a reflective intervention into the lifestyle of the clients. Objects and a physical change to the interior based on the personality and desires/needs of the client. The design activity was not meant to be well executed or look a certain way, have a certain look or style. If anything it was a lo-fi aesthetic using or recycling other aesthetics.
