Photographs: 2008 – 2013

MH2011 by SFA

Medway Eyes was an independent, grass-roots creative collective with an inclusive, community-based approach to the arts and a clear DIY ethic. It ran for five years between 2008 and 2013 and is now deceased. Any short, sharp proclamations you see on Facebook or on Twitter from now on should be viewed either as death rattlings or serious recommendations.

Anyway, we thought we’d just pop back to say goodbye and thank you, and to share the PHOTOS.

This SLIDESHOW view is quite nice too.

Cheers :0)

Medway Eyes Does The Smiths

But don’t forget the songs
That made you cry
And the songs that saved your life
Yes, you’re older now
And you’re a clever swine
But they were the only ones who ever stood by you

A Postcard to Belgrade

Saturday 16th July sees The Singing Loins play the BELEF festival in Serbia.

They asked Medway Eyes to compile a slideshow of photos by Phil Dillon, Sweet Fanny Adams and Alex Turner (Monaxle) to be shown on a huge screen behind them while they play their set.

We made them this postcard from Medway. This is the short version, ten times faster than the version to be played at the gig.  Why not see how many Medway places and people you can recognise?

Rio

It is with great sadness that we report the death of our friend, fellow artist, mentor and catalyst Rio Fraser.

Rio was a fighter, a fierce intelligence, a force of nature and an inspiration.

Our love and thoughts go out to her husband Andy and to all those who loved her at this difficult time.

There are no more words.

Medway Eyes Does Britpop

Saturday 6th November sees us back at the Barge in Gillingham for our last Oxjam fundraiser of 2010, where we’ll be celebrating the best of Britpop which, you may recall, was the UK’s last great bid for musical dominance. Back in the Nineties it was all M People, Spice Girls and Grunge, and previously dance music had ruled the waves. Now it was time for proper tunes you could whistle as you did the Lambeth Walk down to the newsagents to buy your copy of Loaded magazine, or surfed the tide of New Labour pre-millenial optimism on your way to procure your first ever DVD from the Virgin Megastore. Or something like that.

Like all of Medway Eyes’ Barge bashes, we reckon this will be big. Even bigger than the mobile phone you had during the great Blur vs Oasis made up media war of 1994, so get there early to bagsy a table. The live music will start some time between 8:30 and 9:00.

Please do your bit by coming along with a pocketful of change for Oxjam, by spreading the word and by clicking on the poster to download and share it.

As ever, our line up is subject to change. We’re relaxed and groovy like that. Expect some bonus performers.

See you on Saturday.
