Heads Up: American fans of the hilarious and twisted BBC/Adult Swim series, The Mighty Boosh – starring Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt – might want to schedule that long-planned trip to London for sometime between next Monday and the end of the year. That way, you can check out Noel Fielding’s exhibit of his original paintings, starting July 5th at Maison Bertaux patisserie in London. The show is entitled Brian Ferry versus the Jelly Fox, which makes sense when you know that Noel is a huge fan of the former Roxy Music front man (Ferry is referenced in the 2004 Mighty Boosh episode, Hitcher).
According to an interview with Fielding published today in the Guardian UK, the exhibit “will feature a shrine to Ferry, including a large portrait of the Roxy Music singer, as well as a picture of a tree, with Ferry masks hanging off, and another with a headless man on a hill, a Bryan Ferry kite flying high above his neck. The Jelly Fox is part of another convoluted fantasy, a little like The Wizard of Oz, in which three characters go in search of the Jelly Fox.”
I think I will be calling my travel agent shortly!
Noel Fielding’s Bryan Ferry vs The Jelly Fox runs from July 5, 2010 to January 2011 at Maison Bertaux (“London’s oldest and best patisserie”), located at 28 Greek Street, SOHO London, England.
