Pace Prints is currently hosting Way Things Are, an exhibition of new hand-painted monoprints by identical twin artists Raoul and Davide Perre, better known by the moniker How and Nosm. This is the artists’ inaugural exhibition with Pace Prints. Fans of the duo will immediately recognize their distinctive style and their favored color palette of reds pinks, black and grey.

Here are a few of our favorite pieces from the show:

Video Clip of the Week: The Garden, “What We Are”


For this weeks’ Video Clip, we have an amazing discovery with The Garden, a garage rock duo with both punk and goth leanings made up of 19-year-old identical twin hotties Wyatt and Fletcher Shears. You know that I am way past the stage where I am swayed by a pretty face, but these guys have so much more going for them than the model-quality good looks that won them an Yves Saint Laurent ad campaign without them even trying. Most importantly, their music does not suck! With just bass (Wyatt) and drums (Fletcher), they manage to conjure the dark recesses of Bauhaus Meets Iggy Pop, and who could find fault wit that? Answer: no one.

These guys have quite a musical pedigree as well, being the spawn of OC Punk royalty, namely Steven Shears, drummer for long-running group Shattered Faith, an Orange County fixture since 1978! Punk Rock! Schooled on the aggressive sounds of bands like Saccharine Trust, The Minutemen and Killing Joke, The Garden still remember to “Do the Song,” as I like to say.

The above clip for “What We Are” is comprised of a montage of graphics and still shots from the Saint Laurent campaign – nice! The Garden’s debut album, The Life And Times Of A Paperclip was released on July 23rd and can be purchased for download at This Link.
