Wood YOD 2

Thanks to our friends at One Gram in Japan for getting together with Landscape and creating another hand modeled wood YOD, this time in walnut. They come in an edition of 50 pieces in total and as far as I know these have sold out in Japan. But we'll have a (very small) handful available through our European online store sometime in the new year.

The wood is YOD!

Following on from our post on June 24th we now have more information on the wood YOD. These were made by our Japanese licensee, One Gram, and interior design company, Landscape Products.

They are beautifully hand carved from polished solid beech and come in separate parts which join using steel magnets. They are produced in Japan so as you would imagine the quality is excellent. The edition is very small, only 30 pieces worldwide.

They sold out instantly when they went on sale in Japan. Due to their high price and scarcity we have only been able to get a tiny quantity for Europe from which we will have just 5 available for sale through From this Saturday we will be offering these to Gold store members. Details will be emailed soon.

Unfortunately we do not expect to be able to offer the wood YOD for sale to any other membership level.

And please check the Wisdom of Caleb blog for the recent strips based on reader contributions. We will get the personalised original line drawings out to the contributors soon. It's not too late to send us your suggestions and receive your own dedicated hand drawn strip. Details here.

Home of Metal

On Thursday afternoon James and I made the trip up to Birmingham for the opening of a major exhibition at Birmingham Museum. Home of Metal is based on the city's undeniable links with the birth and propagation of Heavy Metal. The exhibition is curated by the wonderful women at Capsule, longtime local music promoters and organisers of the excellent Supersonic music festival. It covers the rise of Black Sabbath through to the birth of Grindcore, and all inbetween. The attention to detail is excellent and the execution is super slick. We thoroughly recommend making the effort to check this out if you get the opportunity.

The meagre Amos contribution to the Home of Metal exhibition.

JJ with his more considerable contribution to the event. This was taken from a cover he drew for the Face Magazine, back from who know's when.

Part of the excellent Grindcore/Anarcho Crust exhibit, dealing with the birth of the genre in the early 1980s. This is largely created from a small selection of Napalm Death founder member, Nic Bullen's personal collection. This includes actual photos, letters, original scribbled lyrics and Punk/Anarchist 'zines he both collected and worked on at the time, together with Miles Ratledge (another Napalm Death founder member).

Nik Napalm himself, probably slightly confused by my gushing enthusiasm for his contribution to the exhibition.

Kriz and Zip, Birmingham skateboard legends, owners of long running West Midlands institution Ideal Skates, and all-round top blokes. They are pictured here in front of a 1980s scene from the Mermaid, a venue they regularly frequented in its heyday. They may well have been at this particular show.

Wooden YOD business...

Contrary to what has been written on other blogs our online store ( will not have these for sale on July 2nd. However they will go on sale through the Japanese Amos online store from that date and it will be possible to buy direct from Japan.

However, we will be getting some sent to Europe, from Japan, for our online store, but not many as they are very expensive. We'll post full information here as soon as we have it.

Stoner Radio on Demand

For anyone who may have wanted to hear my show for Domino Radio, but couldn't make the anti-social scheduling, you can now listen to it on demand at the following address:

I reckon it's worth a listen if you like a slightly heavy stoned rock/psych sound. I'm getting some nice feedback too!

And the chap from Norfolk who I forgot to name is Luke Abbot.

Radio Change

In the unlikely possibility anyone is interested, I've just been told that my radio show will now go out a couple of hours earlier at 1am. I've corrected the time in my earlier post.

On the radio...

I recorded a radio show for Domino Radio which you can hear live if you happen to still be up in the early hours of Thursday morning June 9th at 1am BST. You can actually hear it on a radio (97.7 FM) if you're within a few miles of Wandsworth, South London, and they can bleed out the local pirates.

Or you can stream it online, direct from the Domino Radio website.

If the show gets archived I'll post the link at a later date.

More info on my show here.

Russell as Rufus.

The result of a long weekend at the very last May, Minehead, All Tomorrow's Parties festival.

It will be missed!

AMPW Update Part 2

We will sign any copies of the Wonderlean comic presented to us and James will be available to sign other product bought from the store at KK Outlet.

Jarvis and Waterman will be in the house from 2pm until 5pm on Saturday 21st May.

Amos Porter II

Once again we've collaborated with Japanese premium luggage and accessory brand, Porter. This time with the help of our friends at One Gram they've produced a wallet, hip/shoulder bag and a pen case.

Unfortunately the relatively high product price and weak GBP prevents us from importing these into Europe. However they can be bought directly from
