L.S. Lowry + Masterplan

A step back, flashbax :)
Arts+Music+Football.
Football ground (1953), fans converging on Bolton Wanderers's old association football ground Burden Park, later renamed "Going to the match".

Just a coincidence but tonight there is Manchester City-Bolton Wanderers, they're both in his pictures.

And it was lucky cos then we won 2-0, lil derby won.

"Football match", this one reminds me of an Italian futurist artist:
Carlo Carrà, Partita di calcio (Football match), 1934. It seems Manchester City but it was Italy World Champion for the first time
"Manchester City v Sheffield United", 1938. He was a Manchester City fan as Oasis


Slide away (piano version) @ the Lowry, with the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci, finally stolen from the french? ...

Lawrence Stephen Lowry (1 November 1887 – 23 February 1976) was an English artist born in Barrett Street, Stretford, Lancashire. Many of his drawings and paintings depict nearby Salford and surrounding areas, including Pendlebury, where he lived and worked for over 40 years at 117 Station Road, opposite St. Mark's RC Church.

Lowry is famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts of northern England during the early 20th century. He had a distinctive style of painting and is best known for urban landscapes peopled with human figures often referred to as "matchstick men". He also painted mysterious unpopulated landscapes, brooding portraits, and the secret 'marionette' works (the latter only found after his death).

Because of his use of stylised figures and the lack of weather effects in many of his landscapes he is sometimes characterised as a naïve 'Sunday painter' although this is not the position of the galleries that have organised retrospectives of his works.

A large collection of Lowry's work is on permanent public display in a purpose built art gallery on Salford Quays, appropriately named, The Lowry.

The Manchester rock band Oasis paid tribute to Lowry by releasing a music video for "The Masterplan" (Stop the clocks, greatest hits) in October 2006 which uses Lowry style animation.

the song "Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs" was released by Brian and Michael in 1977


He painted Salford's smokey tops
On cardboard boxes from the shops
And parts of Ancoats where I used to play
I'm sure he once walked down our street
Cause he painted kids who had nowt on their feet

The clothes we wore had all seen better days.

Now they said his works of art were dull
No room, all round the walls are full
But Lowry didn't care much anyway
They said he just paints cats and dogs
And matchstalk men in boots and clogs
And Lowry said that's just the way they'll stay

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street with the sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin
When London started calling him
To come on down and wear the old flat cap
They said tell us all about your ways
And all about them Salford days
Is it true you're just an ordinary chap

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street with the sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Now Lowries hang upon the wall
Beside the greatest of them all
And even the Mona Lisa takes a bow
This tired old man with hair like snow
Told northern folk its time to go
The fever came and the good Lord mopped his brow

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street with sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
