Tomorrow night from 8pm to 10pm, Medway Eyes takes over Fizzer’s Radio Show on Radio Sunlight. Your hosts will be Phil Dillon, photographer and trustee of Medway Eyes, and Hannah Prescott, an artist and film maker known to many for her musical output with Burn Paper Tigers and as Slap Alice. We’ll be promoting the best of Medway, including the forthcoming ME3 compilation, as well as playing cool stuff from further afield.
Tune in. We might play YOU.
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?

We’ve had a few questions about this coming Friday, so it seems like a good idea to post a potted itinerary. Plus, we’ve got some news. Our regular readers will all by now be aware of the exhibition Two Sides of the Same Coin (see Eyes passim) that opens between 6:30 and 8:00 pm on Friday 4th February at the Brook Theatre in Chatham. This preview, to which you are all invited, is just the first half of what promises to be a belter of an evening. From 8:30 pm we have a stunning line up of live music at the Nag’s Head in Rochester. Wheels and Lupen Crook will be sharing the bill, and we’re delighted to announce that they are being joined by very special guest Dave Read, formerly the front man with local legends The Claim, and one of the finest songwriters we can think of. So there.
The exhibition itself showcases the stunning work of artist Daisy Parris, supported by photographer Phil Dillon. It’s about local influences and talent and is as much about the fellow creatives the work points up as it is the artists themselves. Ultimately though, it’s about Medway, its culture and its catalysts.
On Monday 11th october, we sent Phil Dillon to Radio Sunlight to be interviewed by Fizzer Rippon on his radio show. They talked aboutMedway Eyes, ME2 (the second birthday gig and album). A big thank you to Fizzer and his team for having Phil on the show and for sorting out the audio for us.
You can now hear the whole thing, including songs by the three acts playing at the birthday shindig this very evening, Stuart Turner & The Flat Earth Society, The Flowing and Fires Took Over. Enjoy it, and we’ll see you in a few hours.
Dillon, who has been described as “a cult”, exhibited a variety of works showcasing Medway and its musicians alongside some of his well-known London photographs and some of his more impressionistic work.
