Enigmatic Bristolian producer Julio Bashmore is about to release his long-awaited debut album 'Knockin' Boots'. Not content with a bog-standard launch party, he's putting on a free exhibition in Bankside. The interactive exhibition - which may or may not be entirely serious - includes sections devoted to his beloved chow chow dog Gryff and his passion for retro games. Here's what you'll find at the 'Knockin' Boots' exhibition. 

BASHMORE ARCADE GAMES

If you've always wanted to challenge Julio Bashmore to a digital duel (and who hasn’t?) then you're in luck: he's created a Bashmore-branded retro gaming machine. Players can tweet their top scores to win merchandise.

A BASHMORE BIOPIC

Daniel Bereton's seven-minute film, shot in a '70s-esque style, features some of Bashmore's top Bristol hangouts and characters.

BASHMORE-INSPIRED ART

Six artists were given copies of 'Knockin' Boots' as a stimulus to paint, sculpt or draw a piece for the exhibition. The results include a gold-plated hat and a chicken shop flyer.

BASHMORE FRIED CHICKEN

JB loves nothing more than chowing down on some meaty goodness from his favourite Bristol shop - Miss Millie’s Fried Chicken. He's recruited pop-up specialists Food Bomb to create his own blend of herbs and spices to give everyone a finger-licking Bashmore treat.

SOME ACTUAL MUSIC

Throughout the exhibition you'll be able to sample parts of the 'Knockin' Boots' album: 12 tracks of delightfully disco-tinged house. Because what would an album launch be without an album? Just a launch.

The Knockin' Boots exhibition is on at Red Bull Studios London until Friday 31 July.
