As you know, we are big fans of Kate Groobey. We love her paintings and all else she comes up with. At first, it was a chance meeting in a backroom down the stairs at the IKON gallery in Birmingham. Now, we are full on fan-folks.
Because I went to bed early and woke up late, and QPR were totally fucking useless against Sheffield Wednesday in a perfectly winnable game in the FA Cup, and Alarcon Almighty phoned from Long Beach wanting me to explain Megxit to him, and Mrs Champion wanted me to get some badminton shoes before next week, I didn't get to this until now, so you have only one chance, one day remains to see some recent Kate Groobey work at London's art fair. I don't suppose you'll have anything better to do. Let's go.
Kate Groobey - Woman
Kate Groobey - Wow
Kate Groobey - Power
Kate Groobey - Love
Ancient Champion only ever communicates with us online so, so much we don't know. Proud Citizen of Nowhere is the response when we ask where you from? We do know the Ancient Champion is releasing a new single each month of 2019. Instrumental music characterised as easy listening for difficult times. And a collection of extremely short stories, Six Stories About Motoring Nowhere as part of the SideCartel's Sextet series. More info at AncientChampion.com

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
