“GREETINGS. It’s been a BIG couple of months for CALM, culminating in the very cool Tom, Dick & Harry graffiti project at the end of March. It may come as a shock to many that 3 young men end their lives every single day in this country, and to get this little known fact out there to the public, three graffiti artists, Koze, Richt and 45rpm from Soulful Collective, got together and artworked three billboards for CALM on London’s ‘trendy’ Old Street. The middle board was painted live on site, where many people came along and braved near arctic conditions to watch the trio paint a twenty-foot ‘dick’ in public. And what a fine looking dick it was too. Ahem. Anyway, check out Tom, Dick & Harry in their technicolour glory on this issue’s cover and in our Art Show Special.
We also have some wise words from none other than professional cockney swearer Danny Dyer (thanks to our Xpress Project mates), we tackle cyber bullying, losing a twin, Dan Jones introduces London’s best barbers, Mister Mumbles ‘does’ festivals and find out if you are a ‘Standard Issue Lad’. For your sake, we hope not…plus check out our regular features from Frazzled Daddy, The Rant and as always, the awesome Dear Josh fields your questions and sets the world to rights. Don’t be a ‘dick’. Get stuck in…”
