Fans can submit their own custom art work in written, photographic and illustrative form with Michael Lau’s iconic gardener as the source of inspiration. Selected pieces will make their way into the Los Angeles gardener 10th anniversary exhibition held later this year in September.

“They are old-school 70s style punks, and they dress like King Diamond. For real, like all the time, no joke, shaved head, white face make-up, massive black eyes dripping blood. That’s how they dress normally.”

Who’s this new guy on Uristocrat? Why ‘s he blogging about mustached disco dudes and recession specials? Is that tattoo real? Where can I get that disgusting skull screen print?

Luckily for you, we forced him to a little biographical post. We can’t confirm if any of this is true, but prepare to have an egg of knowledge cracked on your brain. 

I’ll start with my name, it’s Matthew Mixveigh.  Uristocrat wanted someone who was ‘In-The-Know’ with all things arty, party, and occasionally culturally relevant issues, so they came to me. Apparently they found me passed out on the street and when I woke up Ed had me all tied up. After he worked me over pretty good (I still have a black eye) he asked if I wanted to write for this blog Uristocrat. I figured since wearing a skull mask wasn’t allowing me to get a job I’d take him up on his offer. 

Now I’d never seen a computer before, they’re hard to come by when you’re raised in the Tennessee backwoods by a pack of wild dogs, and I didn’t know a thing about street wear, hell I’ve been wearing the same clothes since I’ve been 16. I made a deal with him though, I said, “If you let me go out and party every night, I’ll write about it for the site, and since I got a pretty good ear for tunes I’ll write about them to.” Ed thought this was a pretty good deal, so he untied me and now hear I am. 

When I’m not writing for this I got a pretty nice set up over at Temple University. They let me sit around at their school as long as I study something called Journalism. I work for this other website to, it’s called Phrequency, they got a lot of good coverage of all these parties I’m at. Ed let me have one of his old cellular phones so I could get a Twitter. Apparently I just type stuff in and it goes all over the internet and you can follow me to get all the ‘latest news’. If want to clue me in on something E-mail me at

I have to go ‘work’ now at the 941 Theater for a dubstep show with Benga Plastic Little, Flufftronix, and RX. It’s $13 and BYO.

Hixsept Atomic Peace T-Shirts and Poster

hixsept-atomic-peace-0-540x360 Hixsept Atomic Peace T-Shirts and Poster

As part of French label Hixsept’s 10th Anniversary celebration, they’ve introduced a new series of t-shirts under the moniker Atomic Peace. This three t-shirt lineup features a set of re-interpreted symbols created with patchwork shapes and colors. Each design is limited to 150 pieces, and features a special 1999-2009 tag.

To complement the t-shirts, Hixsept recruited artist Samuel Francois to design a poster to represent the collection. The result is a drawing full of worrying realism, where a strange character becomes the guru of a new world where anarchy, peace and duality become universal precepts. This poster is limited to 300 examples and is available for free at all Hixsept retailers.

Have a look at more images of the Hixsept Atomic Peace T-Shirts and Poster after the jump.

RCMP EP Release On Flamin’ Hotz

RCMP Promo Photo

“There was a time when there was a Cold War and AIDS didn’t exist yet. Music was different then. There was something more free and liberated about the music. We want to bring back the spirit of that time.”

RCMP, a boogiedisco duo, is releasing their first EP on Philly based Flamin’ Hotz Records. The self-titled EP was birthed from a collaboration between DJ Apt One, one half of the Philly based DJ duo Philadelphyinz, and Pittsburgh DJ and producer Relative Q. The collaboration started in the Spring of 2008 when Apt One joined Q to assemble several remixes. Their similar musical tastes led to studio experimentation, which led to the recording of Mustache Love, a grandiose reworking of classic disco sensibilities. The success of Mustache Love led to the creation of the RCMP EP.

RCMP is already receiving praise from major players in the DJ community. Cosmo Baker, Member of DJ trio The Rub and Philadelphia Favorite, calls them, “that ultra next step of authentic dance shit. No contrived business here – these dudes are tapped into the boogie groove for real. This is dance floor murder at its finest.” Discobelle, the ‘make you or break you’ music blog of the DJ community, calls the EP, “Boogiedisco that’s got flavours of everything from Ibiza bigrooms, African conga rhythms and Kraftwerk synths and vocoders. Dancefloor mania for sure.”

Metropolis RCMP Release Flyer

The EP drops on Thursday, June 18th. That night RCMP is taking over Metropolis, the Hurrah VS. Robotique VS. Philadelphyinz monthly at The Barbary, for their EP release party. The music video for Ibiza, PA, their first single, will also be premiering. With no cover and free PBR from 10-12 RCMP will make sure your night is taken care of.

Here is a little taste until then RCMP- Ibiza, PA

Recession Special: Art for the Cash Poor Party

Art for the Cash Poor Promo 2


This weekend InLiquid brings you its annual Art for The Cash Poor party and art sale. The art sale, now in its 10th year, is a two day event featuring over 100 artists from Philadelphia and the surrounding area.

The sale happens this Saturday and Sunday, from 1pm to 6pm both days, in the Crane Arts building at 1400 N. American St. This is your chance to snag recession priced pieces from your favorite area artists. 

While you’re there take the time to check out two Philadelphia artists whose innovative installations are already on display at the Crane. Summer Yates, a 2007 MFA graduate from PAFA, brings us Houston and Bowery, an installation paying homage to our cyclic nature through the transformation of discarded Items. The inspiration for Houston and Bowery come from Yates’ experiences living and working in a post-industrial American city. Also being featured is Nicole Wilson, a senior sculpture major at Temple University. The installation, The Pink Dandelion Project, is a grant funded research project to develop a new breed of Dandelion. Wilson’s goal is to challenge our preconceptions on beauty by making what is not beautiful, beautiful.
