Vjestica is the guitarist in the band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Together, inspired by the 'happenings' in London of the 1960's at various underground venues like UFO and the Roundhouse, Vjestica  and Shepard have been creating events of their own around London and further afield in England - billed as Beautiful Sound Light and Heat these are a combination of Shepard's super 8 and 16mm film projections, spoken word performances, dj's and George Vjestica performing live. Besides presenting his film works, Shepard also creates all the publicity posters for the events and has made two short films and artwork for BANDANTE'S 7" vinyl release of Bang Bang / My Friend   (Rough Trade's 'vinyl of the year' and The Vinyl Factories' 'vinyl of the month'
