My good friend Andreas Laszlo Konrath takes beautiful pictures and makes the most perfectly formed zines you've ever seen. This month from the 6th May to the 18th June he has a solo exhibition 'So alone i keep the wolves at bay' in Exit gallery which is a siamese twin of Clare De Rouen bookshop. I asked Andreas some questions about his work and where his fancy name comes from, the full interview is going to be on the TWIN blog but here's a little of what he had to say for himself...

CC. You work with musicians quite a lot, what 5 songs would you choose to be played at your funeral from beginning to end?

ALK. That's the hardest question ever! You see, I don't know if you're supposed to play songs for yourself, because since you're dead, you can't hear them! Or are you meant to choose songs for the people at the funeral, to make them cry!?

Ok, firstly, I can't get it down to 5, but 7, and secondly I'll do one for me, one for them:

1. Fix Me - Black Flag
2. Cucurrucucu Paloma - Caetano Veloso
3. I Wanna Be Your Dog - The Stooges
4. Speed Trials - Elliott Smith
5. Party Hard - Andrew WK
6. Killing Moon - Echo and The Bunny Men
7. Watching the Wheels - John Lennon

Everyone should go and see this.....
