HEAD over to the The Purple Turtle, Reading, on Saturday, August 22, for the Ubiquity Project Records Takeover; a celebration of this great DIY music institution of Berkshire and the surrounding counties. The Ubiquity Project Records Takeover will showcase the label’s range of artists throughout the afternoon and evening, while The Purple Turtle will have street food and an outdoor bar on offer. Food, drink, sun (hopefully) and music. What more could you want? The Ubiquity Project is a collective. Originally established as the mechanism to release an album by the band of the same name, it has now blossomed into one of the area’s most prolific and reliable independent record labels. With its unique positioning as a 100 per cent not-for-profit label, it is no surprise that it is the chosen route to market for the releases of such popular acts as Vienna Ditto, Bear and the Woods and August List. The concept behind Ubiquity has never been limited to the release of records though, with it doubling up as a
community and family for the like-minded artists on the roster; just like the old days. Many’s the time that the bands of Ubiquity will line up on the same bill as one another, or on each other’s records, or even in their bands from time to time.
The line-up includes: 

*Vienna Ditto (www.viennaditto.com)
*Kicking Television (https://www.facebook.com/WeAreKickingTelevision)
*Talulah Kills (www.talulahkills.com)
*Lake of Kings (https://www.facebook.com/lakeofkings)
*Forget Gravity (https://www.facebook.com/ForgetGravity)
*Bruce Neil (https://www.facebook.com/BruceNeilMusic)
And more to be announced…

Welcome to Oil


If the Living Art Hungerford gallery were a band, curator Justin Cook would have cited “artistic differences” as the reason for his departure. He has now cut loose from the family firm to do his own thing at ‘Oil’, just a few doors down the road. TRISH LEE spoke to him about his new gallery, which recently launched with an exhibition in its ‘Boiler Room’
