EditorsJay Jones and Douglas Field in Conversation with Jamie Sutcliffe

Tickets £2 refundable against book purchase on the night. Includes refreshments

Out of print for fifty years, Jeff Nuttall's Bomb Culture has achieved legendary status as a powerful, informative, and spirited exploration of 1960s alternative society and counterculture. Nuttall's confessional account of the period investigates the sources of its radical art, music, and protest movements as well as the beliefs, anxieties, and conceits of its key agitators, including his own. Nuttall argued that a tangible psychic dread of nuclear holocaust pervaded both high and low cultures, determining their attitude and content, much as the horrors of World War I had nourished the tactics and aesthetics of Dadaism.

Jay Jeff Jones is a writer, playwright and editor, who has worked in alternative culture and the mainstream, including newspapers, small presses, underground magazines and theatre in San Francisco, London, British Columbia, New York and Manchester. He was the editor of the literary quarterly New Yorkshire Writing. With Douglas Field he co-curated the John Rylands Library / University of Manchester exhibition, Off Beat – Jeff Nuttall and the International Underground (2016-17). He currently lives in Heptonstall near Hebden Bridge.

Jamie Sutcliffe is an art writer and a publisher at Strange Attractor Press. His essays, interviews and reviews have been published by Frieze, Art Monthly, Rhizome, The White Review and EROS Journal, while catalogue essays have been commissioned by the New Museum, New York and The Austrian Cultural Forum, London. He is also co-editor of both A-or-ist, a new journal of art writing, and Berserker, an anthology of weird comics and unabashed genre work published by Breakdown Press.
