Mr Fogg's Pop-up Shop - 'FOGG SHOP' December 9th - 12th, 2009

Mr Fogg

Oxford's solo electronica Artist Mr Fogg will open his own pop-up shop, named 'Fogg Shop', in Central London for 4 days just before Christmas.

He will sell only CDs, T-shirts, badges and other Mr Fogg merchandise, while also performing throughout the day and night.

Mr Fogg says: "It's about creating a little Mr Fogg world just off one of London's busiest streets - seeing my logo in amongst the McDonalds and Starbucks. But it's also about putting music back on the high street. Just about the only place you can buy physical records now is your local supermarket along with the pizzas and frozen peas - this is an attempt to create an opportunity for people to interact with music in a slightly more creative environment."

The shop is on 16 Manette Street (off Charing Cross Road) opposite the historic music locale Denmark Street and right next to the venue The Borderline. It will open for 4 days - December 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th from mid-day everyday and will close "when it's obvious that we should".

Mr Fogg releases his 'Keep Your Teeth Sharp' EP on Kimi Records (Iceland) and Bandstocks (UK) in early 2010. The EP features a remix of the title track by Icelandic artist Olafur Arnalds.

Mr Fogg recently played Iceland Airwaves Festival and fan-arranged shows in Latvia and Lithuania. He recently finished recording his debut album in Reykavik with Bjork's producer Valgeir Sigurdsson.

And here is a little taster of what's to come on the ‘Keep Your Teeth Sharp’ EP:

What the music press said in the past:

"A one-man wall of intelligent electronica. 8/10" - Drowned In Sound

"Lovely...rather like Get Cape Wear Cape snuggling up with Imogen Heap for a night of spooning" - Artrocker

"An inspired piece of pop music" - Music Week

"His music is an automaton, emitting drum n bass mechanics with Arian precision, but he charges it with human grief likes he's going nuts on some dank urban rooftop. The combination is killer" - BBC Live Review
