Diverse Deeds on Wednesday

DIVERSE DEEDS : Wednesday 16th December
at Café Oto, 18-22 Ashwin Street, Dalston, E8 3DL.
Doors 7.30.

It's the Arthur Shilling Press takeover (or 'The Sporangiophores Quartet'): with Mendoza (aka linus slug), Michael Zand, myself & "the voice of Harry Godwin". Angela Gardner's getting in on it too. My guitar & loop pedal will be making a brief guest appearance, as I attempt musical sonneteering.

I'm told more freak lung's will be available, I'll be attempting to flog my last copy/ies of Tauheed & Sporangiophores, aside some privately printed A6 copies of some of the sonnets (provided I privately print them).
