GO AHEAD AND DROP the BOMB

A night of Literature, music and poetry

Featuring

Bruce Russell (The Dead C et al – Live solo set)

Bruce Russell is the peerless New Zealand experimental musician and writer, best know as founding member of Experimental rock heroes The Dead C, alongside Michael Morley and Robbie Yeats. We’re lucky to have Bruce join us to play an extremely rare solo set on an equally rare trip to the UK. We highly recommend the documentary about Bruce ’27 minutes with Mr. Noisy’ which can be seen here.

‘The Dead C might just be the best rock act currently active’ – The Quietus

Richard Youngs (live Chinese Moon tribute)

"Legendary UK-based folk spirit and underground hero Richard Youngs presents a tribute to one of the mythic constellations in the This Is Memorial Device universe, Airdrie's Chinese Moon, with an ambitious restaging of the all-night tape loop performances that took place in a shop front in Shettleston in 1983. Metal Machine Music-styled Fripp & Eno sorcery meets Terror of the Autons in a total immersion environment." 

‘His music has a rare ability to communicate lucidly from the heart’ – Red Bull Music Acadamy

David Keenan (reading from This Is Memorial Device)

This Is Memorial Device, the debut novel by David Keenan, is a love letter to the small towns of Lanarkshire in the west of Scotland in the late 1970s and early 80s as they were temporarily transformed by the endless possibilities that came out of the freefall from punk rock. David Keenan is the author of England's Hidden Reverse: A Secret History of the Esoteric Underground and a senior critic at The Wire.

‘It captures the terrific, obsessive, ludicrous pomposity of every music fans youth in an utterly definitive way’ – Irvine Welsh

Michael Pedersen (Neu! Reekie! / Poetry)

Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Neu! Reekie!, Michael Pedersen is a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship winner; a John Mathers Trust Rising Star of Literature Award winner; a Canongate Future 40; a Callum McDonald Memorial award finalist; and many more things, with fans ranging from Irvine Welsh and Liz Lochhead to Stephen Fry and Young Fathers. Michael has written short plays for National Theatre of Scotland (FMT) and Edinburgh Art Festival, pop songs for the band Jesus, Baby! and is currently working on a feature film screenplay.

‘Scotland’s favourite avant-garde noisemakers…Neu! Reekie! dismantle the structures and snobberies dividing high and low art – art is for everyone.’ – The Skinny
