Aggggh! We didn’t won’t to ruin the surprise but the cat was clawing the bag and we’ve never been good at keeping secrets. This…is what the Snub 23 Big Lemon bus is going to look like! Look again!! Sorry Snub but we thought all of you who don’t use Big Lemon should get an enhanced sneak preview. Video of Snub and Shuby making it real up at the weekend.

We know it sounds obscene but really it’s just some harmless fun. Since TB+TC met up with Shuby, she’s been busy putting paste ups around Brighton. Some of you wide-eyed people may already have noticed them but not 6 ft tall on the side of Big Lemon buses! This is a fruit salad we couldn’t send back. So expect to see them soon.
For all of you who live in the sunny, seaside city of Brighton and rely on this alternative service, do not be alarmed if you soon see graffed-up Big Lemon buses crossing your path or pulling up to bus stops near you. This alternative bus service which runs its machines on eco-fuel will soon feature exclusive work from some of Brighton’s most famous street artists. The paste ups will be visible on the side of these instantly recognisable coaches from the last week of April until the end of TB+TC – 17th May. We don’t even know which artists will be responsible for the work so the final result will be just as much as a surprise to us as it will be to you! In partnership with Big Lemon, TB+TC aim to make your travel more enjoyable.
We’ve been big fans of these guys for some time now as the walls of our house will testify. So, imagine our delight when we found out that they will be swapping their adopted town of Newcastle for Brighton over the weekend of 16th and 17th May. A little bird tells us that they are keen to hook up with TB+TC and paint the town red – well, several colours actually. We hope we’ll have their work on display and for sale at the event. So you’ll have to get in quick if you want to snap up these unsung heroes’ work. Once we have more details on any collaboration we’ll let you know. If you haven’t heard of or seen Prefab 77’s work then shame on you and immediately click here to be illuminated.

The system, “L.A.S.E.R. Tag”, was created by some very brainy and rather subversive people at the Graffiti Research Lab. This particular group use the technology to temporarily deface important landmarks, before they get chased off by the police.
