How do you feel about gramophones, poetry fans? Vinyl? The Fall? Kick-ass poeming? Look no further; I have something for you that brings these four things together in a way that reminds me a little of Avengers: Assemble, only with less mythical hammers and flying.
On Saturday 22nd June, I’m delighted to tell you that Nasty Little Press is hosting a short literary cabaret* on the top floor of Norwich’s Keir Hardie Hall, before our friend DJ78 plays all his old Fall records on the original vinyl.
Reading on the night will be Luke Wright (The Vile Ascent of Lucien Gore And What The People Did), John Osborne (Most People Aren’t That Happy Anyway), Martin Figura (Arthur) and Hattie Grünwald (Nasty Little Intro #6).
And if the promise of all that NLP talent and the mad gramophoning skillz of DJ78 weren’t enough to have you camping outside Keir Hardie Hall tomorrow on garden furniture with thermoses of soup and sleeping bags, here’s something else:
Yep, don’t say we don’t treat you good, poetry fans. It all kicks off at 8:00pm and promises to be a fantastic night, so make sure it’s firmly in your diary, or on your calendar, or felt penned on your hand, depending how you roll.
*Am I the only person who, on hearing the words ‘literary cabaret’, imagines books wearing jaunty hats and high-kicking? Oh, just me again. OK then.
