allsorts and abstracts

The Vile Arts Radio Hour // 05.10.15 // Allsorts and Abstracts

Gareth K Vile is back, and this time he's abstract.

Following an interview with Markee de Saw and Kim Khaos, Vile launches into a half-developed montage of sounds, including bits of Italian that he is trying to memorise, minimalism and PJ Harvey. Is there a theme?

Allsorts Cabaret returns to Broadcast for its monthly outing! Expect anything and everything, from burlesque and magic to circus and song. There's something for everybody!

It's on Tuesday the 13th. The day that's almost as scary as Friday the 13th. And it's October. The spookiest month. So it might be really really scary and spooky. Or maybe not at all. How mysterious! WHO KNOWS? We certainly don't! :D Our whole show is a surprise!

And of course, the infamous Allsorts raffle will return with another host of fabulous* prizes!

Doors: 8pm for 8:30 start Entry is free with donations on exit.

*fabulousness not guaranteed

The Vile Arts - is this goodbye or the start of a new chapter?

silence and music

The Vile Arts Radio Hour // 05.01.15

As The Vile Arts prepares a new format (there will be new hosts, new guests, and probably less Vile and more arts), DJ SpinOza takes over and tries to open the CD drawers while listening to a lecture by French maverick academic intellectual Foucault.

So, it's all about the music. It's an eclectic mix, with lots of Untitled Media tracks (the good ambient ones) and quite a few offerings from the slush pile out of The List Offices. The Vile Blog will be commenting on the tracks soon. Ish.

The Vile Arts Radio Hour // 06.10.14 // FK and MP

Tonight, on the Vile Arts Radio Hour, I run out of time. That explains why I start late and end early, and in between there are two interviews with the stars of Arches Live!

I had another entire interview to do...

However, have a listen to my chat with Max Powers and FK Alexander.
