Stoned and Dethroned - The The Jesus & Mary Chain version 2 (video grabs)

Host was billed by Tramway as their largest ever collaborative exhibtion and featured the work of 60 artists. It was curated by Peter Lewis with a starting point of representing work by artists working together in a collaborative way.

Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard exhibited several video works, including Stoned & Dethroned - The The Jesus and Mary Chain, a spoken-to-camera monologue featuring Iain telling the true story of performing at a school concert under the pretences of being The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Another work, Made in England which was originally produced to screen as a 'support act' at their live art event The Kids are Alright, takes the form of a Karaoke film set to a vocal-less soundtrack of Substitute, perfromed by a Who tribute band. The lyrics of the song are rolling graphics forming one half of the 'split screen' film, and on the other half, footage of Dan Howard-Birt walking the length of London's Carnaby Street, cutting a strange presence dressed in authentic period Mod clothing previously used in the filming of Quadrophenia.
