New Escapologist launch party

A wonderful gathering of escapologists, skivers, artists, poets, thinkin’ types and office monkeys descended upon the Glasgow CCA this week for the SugarApe New Escapologist launch party. Thanks to everyone who came along.

Especial thanks go out to our DJs: Olivia Fitton, Bobby B and Neil Scott. Also to photographic legend Stuart Crawford, who sportingly attended in a floor-length skirt.

As if to give you a feel of the event or something, we’ve uploaded:

  • some of Stuart’s coverage and
  • a recording of one of Neil’s inspired mashups: “Evolve into robots: Kraftwerk Vs. Bill Hicks“.
  • Some celebrity appearances included Kate Wozza (Suck My Left One Radio), David Malone (GOMA), Laura Gonzalez (Glasgow School of Art), Pat Kane (Hue and Cry, The Play Ethic) and our very own typographic guru, Timothy Eyre.

    Will there be more parties? I don’t see why not. I have an idea about a New Escapologist seminar and spoken word night in a library somewhere instead. Maybe to be followed by a party.
