GALLERY: The Iconic Album Art of Ghariokwu Lemi

Nigerian graphic designer, fine artist and illustrator Ghariokwu Lemi occupies a unique position as the creative genius behind twenty-six of Fela‘s iconic album covers. Christened ‘The Artist’ by Kuti himself, the vivid social realism of Lemi’s works created between 1974 and 1993 provided a fitting visual accompaniment to the singer’s derisive anti-establishment lyrics with its cross of distorted collage, illustration and caricature.

  • Gilles Peterson With Special Guest Thom Yorke on BBC Radio 1
Play

Tonight Gilles and Thom reunite for another back-to-back words and music session. They touch on all kinds of topics over the 2 hours, from his collaborations with Burial and Four Tet, and his side-project with Flea from Red Hot Chilli Peppers, through to DJing at Low End Theory and forthcoming tour plans for Radiohead.

Thom drops a load of music from the new The King of Limbs Remix album, as well as an exclusive first play of a Jamie xx remix of Radiohead. 

To whet your appetite, here’s a clip from the show, where Thom gives Gilles a literary recommendation.

The show goes out in it’s entirety, on Wednesday morning, 2-4am, on BBC Radio 1. You can listen here!

I could do it, you know. Be a hero.

Some characters, despite limited screen time, steal their way into our hearts. Sadly, because of that limited screen time, there is often not a lot of fan-art or appreciation for them. We’d like to rectify that, by giving them a whole week of their own: February 1st - February 7th will be devoted to celebrating the characters who could use a little more appreciation.

Schedule

  • Day 1 – Akela Amador
  • Day 2 – Academy Kids (Seth, Donnie, Callie)
  • Day 3 – Anne Weaver 
  • Day 4 – Ace Peterson
  • Day 5 – Isabelle Hartley 
  • Day 6 – Agent 33 (Kara Lynn Palamas)
  • Day 7 – Free Day (some possible characters include: Idaho, Mindy Peterson, Mike Peterson, Lian May, Skye’s Mom, Audrey Nathan, Agent Avery, Victoria Hand, Chan Hin Yo, Agent Kwan, Miles Lydon, & Many Others)

Any type of fanart is welcome: meta, fanfic, vids, graphics, gif sets, playlists, etc. Remember to put #itmatterswhoiamweek in your first five tags so we’ll see it!

To keep track of what other people have made, follow the official blog.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop us an ask, or contact one of the mods: Ari, Kira, or Wyn.
