Martin Bell From The Fourth Dimension (2011) is Martin’s second self-published book, which follows from the mind-boggling medley of My Birthday Party (2008). Fourth Dimension is filled with Martin’s full-color collages, photographs and impenetrable byzantine drawings documenting the stray ephemera of Martin’s world. A continuing theme is Martin’s obsession with the orb phenomena (those strange circular anomalies that appear in low-light digital photographs, that some associate with paranormal activity). The intensity of Martin’s collation suggest at cryptic connections within its depths. Look beneath or simply enjoy a hallucinatory fun-park ride through a very unique mind.
*Resigned to life as a trans regional/national/philosophical studio band, ‘The Sailors’ are no longer able to launch their own records. Melbourne representatives Hec & Vern will be playing as ‘The Octopus Brothers’. These tentacled gents have been busy of late supporting Ally Oop as members of the Hoopsters. They’re taking the opportunity to steal a little of Ally’s limelight for a quick and dirty launch of the Sailors new record. Ally, ever supportive and multi-talented, will be playing along on bass.
