Chalkie comments - This is brilliant, I look like I'm facing the execution squad, total deer in the headlights vibe. Its the first photo of Elvis and myself in nearly 40 years of friendship. Best of all, they call me Charlie White.

It was a good programme. John Foyle and myself can be seen viewing the exhibition about 24 minutes in just before one of the Elvis segments. Blink and you miss it.

I gave in & did the Tunnelbear thing. A fine, worthy tribute. Nothing stunningly new to me since I've been lucky enough to be involved in aspects of Chalkie's show for a while. I like this -

As JONPD says , he & are in it! There we are at the launch , through a glass darkly, on the right

Chalkie said something in this documentary about there being a chance that this exhibition might travel. JohnF -- do you know any more about that, that you're at liberty to share?

I have to echo John's sentiment that this documentary is worth seeking out, even if you need to do a little IP-address sleight-of-hand to stream it from the BBC website.

A couple of favorite images of mine from this documentary that have appeared nowhere else that I've seen:

1.) EC with his son, circa 1983. I have to assume that Chalkie did this one for EC as his friend and never intended it for publication. I liked the whole segment on Chalkie's use of the (famous, in some quarter) 20x24 Polaroid Land camera which produced this photograph.

2.) A shirtless Ian Dury. I can't imagine why this one wouldn't have made the cut for publication when it was taken, but then again I can't imagine it not being all over the internet if it had been published before. It's just a really striking portrait.

Chalkie hopes the exhibition will travel. He told me of various London gallerys that wanted to debut it but he preferred to go with the venue in his birthplace. It would be easy to transfer . The photos and the various added features - wifi guide, screens with guides etc - just need a few well lit rooms. And a sound system to play the Augustus Pablo tunes that are on permanent rotation. It all depends on the visitor numbers it generates thorough out the summer. They've been good so it here's hoping!

Chalkie was too exhausted to get back to Cardiff from New York last week to show Elvis around the exhibition. He has, however, been sharing on his facebook page comments Elvis sent him after seeing the show.

"The Specials photo was especially impressive. Seeing at that scale, I had greater appreciation of Jerry's genius in briefly uniting such disparate characters and how beautifully you captured them, not one of seven less than their most vivid selves". Elvis Costello, June 25th 2015

"One last thing, I think it genius to have the interactive screens, allowing you to see the context of some of theses shots along with gossip, silly headlines and gig ads. It makes your achievements all the more extraordinary." Elvis Costello, June 25th 2015

Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

Re: Chalkie Davies exhibition to open in Bath, early in 2017

Postby Man out of Time » Mon Jun 20, 2016 11:57 am

Chalkie's exhibition (The NME years) will be opening at the Victoria Gallery in Bath (Avon), early in 2017 (according to a post on his account on Facebook).

Good news for Chalkie and for those of us who didn't get to see it in Wales.

For those interested in seeing this excellent exhibition, it will run in Bath from February 26th until May 10th 2017.

No publicity on the venue's website yet, so you heard it here first...

The Norwich one is where I bought my car and get it serviced.
Let's hope there's special offers for customers!!
Is that so surprising nowadays?
