The more observant amongst you will have noticed an odd little logo (which differs slightly each time) on the credits page of Push and on other things that I’ve produced, which says ‘Plaitford Productions’.
Plaitford is the tiny village in the south of England where I grew up.
Here, in case you’re interested, is a list of Plaitford Productions to date.
-Richard Hart

(NB: I also did shirt designs for Element, NC Clothing, Carhartt WIP and Document magazine, some of which featured the PP logo but didn't get a catalogue number.)


PP#1- ‘Telephone Pad’ zine

PPPP1.jpg

1999, edition of 100. Features drawings.

This zine was made for an art show which I curated in San Francisco. All drawings, all skaters; it featured Big Foot, Chris Duncan, Jeremy Fish, Israel Forbes, Richard Hart, Jesse Hotchkiss, Brian Lotti, Lucian Moon and Mat O’Brien. The zine has one drawing by each person.

PP#4- ‘Celebrated Summery’ zine

PPPP4.jpg

*********************************************************

 

PP#5- ‘*Asterisk’ T-shirt

PP-full.jpg


Asterisk shirt (not, contrary to one cop, depicting a marijuana leaf) tone-on-tone baby-blue shirt.

*********************************************************

 

PP#6- ’50/9′ zine and..

PP#7- ’50/9′ short film (on Super-8mm)

…Which remains unfinished. But could be, and perhaps will be, one day. Features Tony Manfre. PP#6 is the zine-of-the-film.

*********************************************************

 

PP#8- ‘Everything Went Black -and White’ zine

pppp5.jpg

2004. Says it is an edition of 100, but the photocopies looked so awful when they appeared that I destroyed them all. I then made a ‘first new batch’ of about a dozen and, er.. never made any more.

Features drawings and photos; mostly by me, but also some artwork by Simon Evans and some photographs by Dave Schubert.

*********************************************************

 

PP#9- ‘Withnail’ shirt

PPwithnlfull.jpg

Emblazened with just one of the myriad immortal lines from the film ‘Withnail & I’…

PPbodiesfull.jpg

‘Bodies’ shirt.

*********************************************************


PP#11- ‘Things Which Nag II’ zine

pppp6.jpg

2005, edition of 100 I think; zine (and poster). Drawings. Stealthily made in the basement of Kingpin on the in-house photocopier (cheers NN!).

PP#12- ‘Things Which Nag III’ zine

pppp7.jpg

2007, zine with sticker, ed. of 34. Drawings.

*********************************************************

 

PP#13- fake 7″ cover

200?, ed. of 1. Produced for Sonny Smith’s ‘100 Records’ artshow which, as the name implies, featured 100 record covers for fictional bands, with real music made by Sonny and friends. In keeping with the theme, I gave mine the catalogue number of PP#13; even though there is only 1 in existence. And I’m not sure where, either..

*********************************************************

 

PP#14- website

WWWas the Plaitford Productions website. I think I had been thinking about Factory Records too much, and their habit of giving catalogue numbers to absolutely everything (including an ex-employee’s coffin).

*********************************************************

 PP#15- Magenta Guest Artist T-shirt

mgtashirt.jpg

Shirt accompanied board release (see below). Graphic reads ‘Be the King of the Castle’; a reference to one of the songs in the album mentioned.

*********************************************************

PP#16- Magenta Guest Artist Board

ppppmg.jpg

 

2014. This limited-edition board was released by Magenta.

“The text on the board is from an album title. There was a record I listened to a lot when I was at school, by Scottish Indie band the Soup Dragons. It’s called ‘This is our Art; Useless, Boring, Impotent, Elitist and Very, Very Beautiful’. I always appreciated the humour in that title and I happened to pull that record out around the time I did the board. It struck me that it was also a pretty good description of skating, at least from the point of view of an outsider- essentially useless, incomprehensible to the point of tedium, without any real power, definitely elitist and ‘cool’. I acknowledge all that, but of course our ‘art’ can also, as we know, be beautiful…”
