  3. Great interview mate! Pakito’s Spremanga is very good ! I recommend it.
    I also interviewed artists for EBD (I’m no fucking journalist but I guess it’s just something outsider artists have to do: self productions, self advertisements etc. if you know what I mean) So I interviewed some LDC artists Nuvish, Anne Van der Linden and Léo; Terre Noire propaganda also is related to LDC : have a look (we spoke many time about LDC in the interviews): http://eatenbyducks.blogspot.com/search/label/Interview%20Agaiihine

  4. Also I’d like to say that the books produced by LDC are very beautiful and very crafty. I’m not sure but I’ve heard that LDC encounters a difficult period at the moment. All those books and posters are actually very cheep if you think about the amount of work which is necessary to produce them and as a consequence I suppose that LDC has a strong social commitment. Many things are worth buying. I especially recommend Nuvish’s poster about LSD… I spent loads of time looking at it: at first you perceive the grotesque elements, then, while focusing on it (like if you were trying to see faces or cartoons in the clouds), you start to perceive strange ghosts. There are three positions to look at it, I guess: far away, very close or just one meter away from it. Each of them brings different characters and impressions. There are probably many things which Nuvish didn’t intend: for example when you are close to it you can see many cool and strange little mysterious beasts… It is both raw and mystical.
