John Doran, a Lancashire born writer and editor of the Quietus website, explains why he has put the event together.
Since he figured it was high time he was having a mid-life crisis; the author and journalist has decided he might as well do the fucking thing in style. Doran, the editor of the Quietus website, writer for VICE and the Guardian as well as occasional broadcaster for the BBC and Noisey has a book called Jolly Lad coming out this May on Strange Attractor press concerning his recovery from alcoholism, the joy of fatherhood, repairing the damage done by decades of habitual drug use, coping with mental illness and obsessive behaviour - especially regarding music and art. And this is being released with a spoken word album featuring musicians from Manic Street Preachers, British Sea Power, Factory Floor, Grumbling Fur, Eccentronic Research Council, Teeth Of The Sea, Perc and more.
And not only that but for the whole of May he is undertaking a 31 date reading tour of England playing to captive audiences along the way. Literally captive, in the case of the three high security prisons he's doing shows in. Other venues include churches, WW2 bunkers, record stores, bookshops, warehouses, libraries, theatres and cinemas.
