The Vile Arts Radio Hour
By May 2011, only four months after beginning the Radio Show, Vile's delusions became terrifying. Once a familiar face on the Glasgow circuit, he began to hide at home, spending hours perfecting his interviews or mixing obscure electronic music into local Glasgow bands' demo. In a late April episode, he managed to pull together Joe from the mighty Hivver, the star of Scottish Opera's Rigoletto, the producer behind the revival of Wildcat and 7:84's cabaret agit-prop A Bunch of Fives, before ranting about the dangers posed to democracy by the closure of The Ramshorn Theatre. Even his closest friends, and Producer Harry, were concerned.
The Vile Arts Radio Hour brings you the Civil Partnership that they are already calling the wedding of the century: the holy union of arts and politics. Vile once again tries to convince Producer Harry that religion has a higher hit rate for aesthetic endeavour then secular ideology: Harry counters that it doesn't need to be explicit to count as political, citing Black Watch.
Since neither of them have actually seen the play, they quickly switch on some Holy Mountain.
The ceremony is attended by members of 85a, the three artists who will be making Cryptic Nights a sound CCA special, a representative of A Bunch of Fives, who are bringing back the political cabaret of 7:84 and Wildcat, the star of Scottish Opera's Rigoletto, Nick Spaghetti and his plus one Blochestra. The hymns are provided by The Kronos Quartet, and the signing of the register conducted to the Creative Martyr's romantic acapella.
The reception features a selection from Vile's research into the upcoming gigs: Kid Robotik brushes shoulders with Prince Rama.15:00 - 17:00
