Houston : The Art & Design of Ben Drury

Houston : The Art & Design of Ben Drury

Houston was the art gallery/studio of Seattle based artist Matthew Clark. In 2001 he curated a 2 months long Ben Drury exhibition. This web page has been online for many years and was very well known in the Mo’ Wax community. It has been taken down in 2005 I think, so it now has its place in the More Wax web archive.

The Face : Mo’ Wax feature from 1995

Late 1995. The now defunct The Face magazine followed James Lavelle and the Mo’ Wax crew in a trip to the West Coast of the USA, where they were supposed to work on the then-forthcoming UNKLE/Belmondo album. The project was later abandoned but eventually gave birth to Psyence Fiction. Expect to read things and people you’ve never heard of before.
