Eminent writter and filmmaker  Simon Witter has produced a Fantastic documentary series entitled  London Calling: The Untold Story Of British Pop. 

The series started in Australia last week on the Arts and Culture Channel  Studio. There are 4 programmes in the series each approx. 1 hour long. Dean features in the second programme of the series 'Every Picture Tells  A Story', it is due to be aired on Tuesday 23rd October 2012.

Just before Christmas last year Dean was Interviewed by Simon Witter for the programme. It's first broadcast came on  ARTE, (the European Arts and Culture Channel) earlier this year amidst the London centric summer of Jubilee celebrations and Olympic triumph.  The Series Screened on UK T.V.'s via the Sky Arts Channel around 3 weeks ago and now Australia is delighting in the show.

London Calling: The Untold Story Of British Pop focuses on the British Pop/Rock culture as well as celebrating its relationship within other artistic disciplines. Dean features alongside legendary photographers   Jill Furmanovsky,   Pennie Smith and  Gered Mankowitz, Writers  Jon Savage and  Paul MorleyBoy George and managers  Simon Napier-Bell and  Andrew Loog Oldham as well as artist/musician  Fred Deakin.

Interviewed at his North London Studio, Dean talked at length about the current scene and the nurturing of new talent, offering a contrast to his peers more historical insights.

Dean also invited  the the London Calling cameras along to  Shorditch Studios in London to hang out and document a live shoot in progress with the young and soulful band  New Street Adventure .  Dean has affiliated himself with New Street Adventure, inviting them to play at his immensely well-attended and enjoyed opening parties/private views for his latest exhibition “ LOOK. HEAR” shown in Leigh-on-Sea at the beginning of the year and now currently resideing along side “YOUNG SOULS” (another exhibition by Dean) at the  Royal Albert Hall, London until the 26th October 2012.

Here's a taster of the series.


Muse - NME

This week, Dean's cover shot of Muse for NME graces News-stands across the country. Dean shot Muse last Thursday during their rehearsals (yes Rehersals! they actually took over Wembley  Arena to reherse in!!) for their 2nd Law tour promoting their latest album of the same name.

Muse NME cover 2012

The interview with Tom Howard gives NME’s readers a behind-the-scenes look into the band’s “maddest tour ever”, with in depth descriptions of the astonishly impressive set designed by Matt Bellamy himself. 

Muse’s 6 th studio album '2 nd Law' was given a very credible 8/10 in NME and, as the band informed Dean on the day of the shoot, that the album artwork is an illustration of the human brain’s intricate circuitry system, where the connections of how we process information has been represented in a colour coded graphic...Which is pretty cool.

  the new british launch party

Last Thursday night ‘The New British’Magazine got physical. People gathered at the launch party. Eagerly  people looked at the sought after copy of the magazine that was present in the gallery. The Magazine is very rare some tried (and failed) to ‘half inch’ the copy.  Exposure gallery in Little Portland Street London was THE place to be that night. We salute Kez Glozier (the man behind the publication), it’ a great Magazine click here to see their blog

Open Day at the Royal Albert Hall: Saturday 6th October

Dean's 'Young Souls' and 'Look.Hear' exhibitions remain up in the Royal Albert Hall until the 26th October, but this Saturday (6th October) will be the final Public Open Day. 

In other words this will be the last time you can just roll into the Royal Albert Hall off the street unless you are going to see a performance or on a guided tour. So, if you can make it along between 10am -3pm on Saturday it is the ideal time to see the work. We have heard that people have just arrived at the venue outside of the Public Open Days and have still been allowed to view the exhibitions but entry cannot be guaranteed, it is at the management’s discretion.

THIS IS A BAND YOU WILL LOVE! ....Palma Violets shot at Studio 180 London

This Weeks NME magazine is full of Palma Violets pictures… well there are other stories but the Palma Violets have a substantial chunk of the Magazine. This band are exciting!  Some people are calling them the 'best new band', maybe they are?... The feature that Dean shot certainly captures them bursting out of obscurity. It seems very likely that we will reflect on this feature as a pivotal moment.
