In January 2015 I interviewed Viv Albertine at Central Saint Martins and it was a real pleasure. I saw the Slits several times as a teenager and have always been a massive fan, and now she’s written this incredible book. There’s a brief excerpt from the talk on YouTube and I’ve also got a recording of the whole two hour conversation somewhere if you’re interested.
I was DJing on Tony Slackshot’s internet radio show in February 2016 and lots of fun it was too. His show is called Get On It / Jackin’ so I played mostly bangers with the odd curveball. You can download my set from this very website here or if for some reason you’d rather just stream it from Mixcloud then be my guest.
So I’ve been chosen as one of ten artists to put on an event for the 2014 Connect10 competition. Basically a range of museums will compete to host my event which I am describing as a “day-glo game show party.” Quite what that means I don’t know but it should be fun! You can find out more on the Culture 24 / Museums At Night website and at some point vote for me to work with your local museum, should you so wish. Hoorah!
Cheltenham Design Festival
I’m talking at the Cheltenham Design Festival in April this year which is all about Design Futures. I was planning an optimistic message (the talk’s title begins “Hooray!”) but I’ve had the flu recently so finding the necessary positivity to write the damn thing is proving a bit elusive. Maybe I’ll do them a Goth remix; I’m sure they wouldn’t mind.
If you’re there I’m doing my thing at 17.00 on Friday the 12th of April. No Goth really, I promise! (Oooh, so tempting though.)
