Ill Manor was for a long time a local and international artist’s abode in the suburb of West End, Brisbane QLD Australia.
It had numerous occupants in it’s years as a launch pad for the musical, painting and circus underground.
Many parties and gigs were had. Notably the gig upstairs in the main room Involving Kafka, a super dirty lo-fi afro-beat collective. (first image)
Laneous & The Family Yah shot part of their timeless film clip for ‘Oh She’ there.

In June 2011 it was sold to a new owner who had no sense of what it was and he gave notice to leave for all inhabitants.
Certain relics have been obtained by some of the artists and still exist, such as the painted front door, and the original land deed to the property.
I went in during the very last week of it’s existence and took some B&W photos using TMAX100 35mm film and a Pentax K1000 camera.
