I can always tell when William Orbit is up to something, because he disappears without trace for a few months, then suddenly he's back with some groundbreaking project or other; whether it be a new Strange Cargo album, or projects with any number of A-Listers. Madonna, Blur, All Saints, Katie Melua, you name 'em. Anyway, a small mysterious looking package popped through my letterbox the other day, which was crammed full of new music and video's that he's launching on his own YouTube channel tomorrow. He's been working with an enigmatic singer by the name of Triana Terry, he's got a new series called William Orbit's A to Z of Sound and there are new clips 6 days a week. Here are a couple of trailers that precede the launch, but check the channel out, subscribe and prepare yourself for sensory overload! It's called William Orbit World; It's New, it's Now, and it's Not Normal!

|Massive Attack! Whaat? by Dave Gibbons in the entrance to Orbital.|
Last night's Image Duplicator show at Orbital Comics in London was an absolute success, in fact I was enjoying myself so much I didn't take as many pictures as I normally would. A big up to Rian Hughes and Jason Atomic for organising such a great show; Mark Blamire for his superb quality prints and Dave Gibbons for taking the stage and signing everything he was presented with. Not forgetting the brilliant hosting capabilities of the Orbital Comics Crew.

|Garry Leach turns up at the eleventh hour with his humongously brilliant Plop Art piece... still wet!|
