This Friday , September the 20th at around tea-time, everyone’s favourite 70 something amateur natterer, Alby Figgs, returns for brand new adventures in psych-babble street philosophy and elasticated truth stretching. After this season 2 opener, there’ll be a new monthly schedule, every first Friday from October, expanded stripage (two tiers–good), full colour colouring in and a brand new wooly jumper.
All this at the ridiculous cost of no pence to you. Keep your browsing fingers and thumbs hovering over this link http://albyfiggs.wordpress.com/ till then!
Just in case you missed Alby Figgs staring in his own, pretentiously colour-themed, Bafta neglected ‘arthouse’ trilogy, Arthouse Bleu, Coffee House Brun and Artehaus Weis, ketchup now just to say ‘you were there, first’. Or second or third or…
This week, everybody’s favourite septuagenarian street sage (?), Alby Figgs, gets down with the kids in the arcade for a run-through of recent and not so recent tele-visual broadcasting history.
And if you missed last week’s palm-fringed outing, check out Alby in shades in Canned Heat, still showing here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-2r
This week’s Alby Figgs episode sees Alby in ‘Day of the Dead’. Will there be zombies, skeletal automatons emerging from the graveyard, ghoulish apparitions scaring 50 shades of shite out of us? Or, just a man with a handy hankie to hand? It doesn’t get much more rock ‘n’ roll than this! No, honest, it doesn’t!
This week’s Alby Figgs episode sees the tension mounting, as Alby confronts (scarpers from) his ‘Nemesis’. Could it be? Is it possible? Who’d ‘ve thought? Where’s his washboard? Et cetera. Catch the latest brand new episode here http://wp.me/s2xlpi-nemesis
This week’s Alby Figgs episode, ‘Going Albyground’, sees Alby face an unwelcome truth on the Tube. Will he be deterred? Can he overcome years of London Transport’s antisocial conditioning?
The latest Alby Figgs episode sees Alby take a stroll down ‘Memory Lane’. Yeah, I know, hard to believe, but true! Follow the footsteps of Geezer Gus, Dolly DD and Ted Turncoat the Teddy Boy Tailor, right here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-25
And in case you missed last weeks thrill engorged instalment, ‘Milk Bar’, here’s a handy link to that particular dairy flavoured gem http://wp.me/p2xlpi-20
Yes, he’s a big fan of the local library! The Library of the Subconscious, of course. This week’s Alby episode, ol’ Figgsy manages to get Bob the Builder and French philosopher, Jean Baudrillard in the same sentence. Has this ever been done in comics form before? And if not, why not?!
Check it out at the check out, here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-1T
The latest Alby Figgs episode, Fellini, available here at http://wp.me/p2xlpi-1O focuses on Alby’s small parts (watch it!) in movie making history. That’s right missus…
Many thanks for everyone who came to our Brighton launch last night at The Hotel Pelirocco and made it such a greatly unwashed evening. Now, go on and shower.
Wondrous prizes were to be had in the Reg Chivers style raffle, including a years supply of pig custard, a copy of the brand new book and a half bottle of sherry (don’t say we’re not cheap) amongst other gems.
For those of you who couldn’t make it to the smallish, but perfectly formed velveteen heart of the Pelirocco lounge, fret not, because we’ll be signing copies of The Great Unwashed at Dave’s Comics tomorrow, Saturday 15th, from 1-3 p.m. The first 100 copies sold will also come with a limited edition signed postcard featuring a hand-drawn sketch of Wigan’s finest, a Mr R Chivers, so don’t miss out on the predicted stampede of Pleece Brothers merchandise!
As mentioned before, there’ll also be a London launch and signing at The Phoenix Arts Club on Wednesday 26th from 6-9 p.m. for those of you residing in the smoke, coinciding with Paul Gravett’s Comica Social Club monthly event. A must!
And if that wasn’t enough, and you can’t wait to get your peep holes on some new Pleece Brothers related material freshly inked and on a screen near you now, the latest Alby Figgs episode, ‘Sis’ is now up at the Alby site here and now http://wp.me/s2xlpi-sis where it’s almost as if old Ingmar Bergman’s taken over from fairly oldish Waz Pleece in this week’s director’s chair! Oh, man of few words…
