LIVE EVENT: CRIME CALLS FOR NIGHT & MUSIC FROM GROAN VESSEL
27 February 2016, 7 – 8.45pm
Author David Keenan presents Crime Calls For Night, a talk based on the new introductory chapter to his seminal study of the industrial underground entitled England’s Hidden Reverse. This book traces and analyses the transgressive urge that animated much of post-punk art, music and cinema while taking detours into Paleolithic art, Throbbing Gristle and Whitehouse, The Sex Pistols, Bob Dylan and Lou Reed. Keenan asks if the use of atrocious images of genocide, serial murder and sexual violence that dominated much of industrial culture can have any kind of initiatory or redemptive function. The talk is followed by music from Groan Vessel – a specially commissioned 6-person strong supergroup of musicians from Green Door Studios, featuring members Whilst, MR TC, Pussy Mothers and Leatherette – playing a special one-off set influenced by the work in the THIS IS NOW exhibition.
This event is free with limited capacity; entry will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
