From 2006 to 2010 I was making music of sorts, with videos, fanzines and podcasts with my friend Paul V Lawford. We called ourselves 'The Rubbish Men of Soho’. I took the name Robert Rubbish as my artist name, I liked the sound of it. Think Rolls Royce, think Robin Reliant, think Robert Rubbish...strong brand.
As a member of Le Gun, can you tell us how the collective came into being?
We all met at the Royal Collage of Art in 2003 and found we had interests in the same artists, books, films, counter culture and heavy drinking. It’s all a bit hazy now but we started to plan and made Le Gun Issue 1.
We made some Tracey Neuls shoes that featured the Le Gun print – ‘The Entry of Marvin Gaye into Brussels’ depicting George Melly amongst others. Could you talk a bit about this piece?
It’s our homage to James Ensor's 'Entry of Christ into Brussels' and was made as part of the 'Unknown Room' installation and this was the story that ran throughout Le Gun Issue 5.
Above is the Tracey Neuls and Le Gun collaboration (The Geek style, each pair has a different part of 'The Entry of Marvin Gaye into Brussels' print, making them like true limited editions and wearable collector's items)
NEW IN | MULES
"Since launching in 2000, I've designed a lot of shoes. Funnily, it's taken me 38 collections to embrace the idea of a Mule? Now I'm hooked. All Summer, I lived in the more casual, flat version, these became like outdoor slippers. Now it's time for a winter Mule, with soft thick shearling lining for comfort and warmth." - Tracey Neuls
