“Real Park” is a real park in East Brisbane. Bek Moore of Clag fame was keen to photograph the sign for the cover and title of an album by her band Scrabbled. (who are on bandcamp.) Bek even almost commandeered the original BCC sign! Unfortunate to relate, Bek died in 2016, before she could put out that Scrabbled album. To thank Bek for her life of reinvigorating dead cities, and also because it kicks arse, we hereby steal her cover/title.
We recognise the traditional caretaker ethic as able to create an ongoing real park. Market competition is unsustainable. As long as it does persists such competition is exploitative and NO FUN.
