freewheelin-on-line take 9 cover

 

I have chosen as my central image to this months Freewheelin cover a sepia snow-flaked Dylan. The snow flakes are blowing from right to left which implies that the howlin’ wind is a cold easterly although Dylan’s coat seems so warm that he is well protected. I wanted a blow up model of Father Christmas to stand behind Dylan but all I got was a scary Ozzy Osbourne who, spending his life in sunny L.A., seems terrified that the snow flakes might blow into his face. Clint Eastwood, who sure knows how to wear a hat, looks disdainfully at Dylan’s effort and wonders where the top has gone and who planted the flowers. 

All this takes place against the background of works by  this years Turner Prize nominees namely Catherine Yass, Fiona Banner, Liam Gillick and Keith Tyson. Although Tyson took the money, my favourite was Catherine Yass with her weird photography as witnessed by the top line of images in this cover which represent a corridor leading to what looks like a Tardis. 

James Mason is the luckiest person in my own time machine. He has obtained an advance copy of ‘Chronicles’ and, in a break from Kubrick’s ‘Lolita’ he sits by the Christmas tree with his dog having a bloody good read. Lucky Jim!
