Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

New Baltic Exhibition.

Tell me I've gone mad and what I have just watched on Google is a figment of my imagination. 
A New exhibition by Turner Prize winner Mark Wallinger is being displayed at the Baltic in Gateshead. 
The exhibition comprises of two items.
Item 1 features 65,536 pebbles laid out on a giant checker board .
Item 2 features .......wait for it........... a WALL. Yip, a wall. Ahh, but here comes the rub. The wall is a BRICK wall. Not yer ordinary common or garden wall, it's a BRICK WALL.
George W.

Well George, I'm not too sure about the pebbles - perhaps they were thrown at him and he decided to make use of them.
However, I think the wall is a terrific idea - hammer a few nails in and they could use it to hang paintings on!
I wonder how much the Arts Council coughed up for this?
