THIS IS HOW WE DIE: B-Sides and Rarities
christopher brett bailey delves into the THIS IS HOW WE DIE manuscript to bring a kaleidoscopic new monologue comprised of off-cuts, alternate scenes and b-material. some deemed too silly for the main show, some too excessive, some too bleak. a fascinating insight into the creative process or a gross exercise in vanity? you decide!
‘a bugged out gonzo king, filling the underground with menace and death’ – phonic fm
‘a mesmerising, mouthy athlete, all tongue-twisters and mobile lips.’ – lyn gardner, the guardian
‘what a fucking genius’ – smiths magazine
THIS MACHINE WON’T KILL FASCISTS BUT IT MIGHT GET YOU LAID
a series of compositions for and about the electric guitar. extreme and exploratory, THIS MACHINE is equal parts punk rock and modern classical. klanging metallic textures, insistent overtones and grinding repetitions performed in sharp suits, at maximum volume. Featuring: George Percy, Alicia Jane Turner and more!
“bailey’s guitar symphony… with a name like that it would be brilliant even if it wasn’t. but it is, so there” drowned in sound
“heroic” – les bicknell
