James Burgess, Sophy Hollington, Idiot’s Pasture, Kate Prior and Pippa Toole are the illustration and design collective that make up Skull Paradise.

Hailing from Brighton, Leeds and London, the collective have previously exhibited Bad trip at 2014’s Pick Me Up at Somerset House and Scawfell Street Studio in London.

Their third public outing will see them launch their first show in the North, The Gravehounds of Bone Street, at Common on Thursday 28th August 2014, where Skull Paradise invite you to hang out on the corner of Bone Street with The Gravehounds!

The Gravehounds’ spot on the corner of Bold Street is lined with anti-feline, anti-human and anti-everything graffiti. Their collar tags and leashes are long gone and these degenerate street dogs enjoy a life of hedonistic depravity as a leather wearing, swearing, biker gang with attitude.

So show your canine solidarity on Thursday 28th August at 6pm. Expect temporary gang tattoos, Gravehound patches, limited edition risograph prints, free booze and bad vibes. And to fit right in with the gang, wear leather!

When: Thursday 28 August to February 2014
Launch: 6pm, Thursday 28 August 2014
Where: Common, 39 – 41 Edge Street, Manchester, M4 1HW
