Announcing a special evening of Bankside performances curated by The Tapeworm, as part of the Merge Festival.
London Town’s finest cassette-only label, The Tapeworm, presents its third annual event in the Capital. Exemplary music and much excitement is to be expected from a line-up of the label’s mates.
Mr Ken Hollings, a writer of note, shall be reading his text from the first Bookworm publication, to be launched on the same night. Sweden’s BJNilsen will be flying in and making a splendid noise for you all. A second Swede, CM von Hausswolff (he’s a King, dontchaknow…) will share a stage with Touch’s Mike Harding, in a reading of Edgar Allen Poe like none before… Cult vs. occult – former Medicine Head man Peter Hope-Evans and illustrator Savage Pencil will whip up a dark blue storm. Mr Pencil’s fine drawings shall also be on display. Hopping on the bus from Elephant & Castle is Zerocrop and his band; pop perfection from a local lad. And finally, a London eye – video installation by Vicki Bennett, aka People Like Us.
Exhibition featuring work by Savage Pencil and Vicki Bennett Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd October 12 – 6pm
Offline : DO or DIY Goes Analogue!
DO or DIY, Wednesday 12th October 2011
8pm – 9pm on WFMU 91.1 fm 90.1 fm and wfmu.org
That’s correct! Did you know that since 2003 DO or DIY has never played a record OR a CD? It’s all just files, files, files. So in preparation for Singles Going Steady Week on WFMU (Oct 24-30), we’ve been crawling around under the bed and finding our old vinyl. And here’s what we found in our home LP collection. No WFMU Record Library, no online blogs, just what we found, er, under the bed, and some reflections on how different it is to do a show without the aid of the World Wide Web.
Don’t forget that October is WFMU online-only fundraising month, so it’s ironic that this is when we decided to go analogue! Tune in… and please pledge. Thank you if you have already!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN is a month long celebration of horror and classic horror figures in popular culture. An exciting group of artists, illustrators and graphic designers have been invited by MAIDEN and EAST END PRINTS to re-imagine classic horror characters in an innocent and playful way. Artwork featuring well “loved” characters from all of our favourite scary movies will cover the walls of the basement at Shoreditch’s favourite shop MAIDEN.
