Moon Landing Party At Islington Mill


I shall presenting a reading from my book Welcome to Mars and also performing onstage with Biting Tongues as part of a special Moon Landing Party being held at Islington Mill on July 19. It should be an amazing night. Here is the press release for this historic event:


MOON LANDING PARTY @ ISLINGTON MILL 19TH JULY
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission

BITING TONGUES – back from their own 30 years in deep space
You sent them out there –now hear a full mission report

A COMPLETE HISTORY OF SPACE MUSIC
We have invited various artists to address the music of the space pioneers.
May Ming reinterpret Les Baxter’s Music Out of the Moon (chosen as Neil Armstrong’s personal cassette on the Apollo 11 mission)
Paddy Steer recalibrates music from Joe Meek’s I Hear a New World
LA77 rewires Dick Hyman's Moon Gas
Matt Halsall plugs in his trumpet for some Classic Space Jazz
Ken Hollings connects suburbia to outer space in his lecture Welcome to Mars
Massonix will perform Pulsars, a suite for radio waves from the Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope

LUNAR MODULE CEREMONY
We have invited various model makers to reconstruct “The Eagle”. But will she fly?
“You’ve got a bunch of guys about to turn blue!”
The Mercury Seven a DJ team brought together from a rigorous selection process of clinical, endurance and psychological testing. Who will be first in orbit: Kelvin Brown, Graham Massey, John Mc Cready, LA77? Only four survived.

RECLAIM THE MOON
Aware of the fact that NASA’s free footage has been used to death in trippy visuals from the 1960s through to the present day, we will celebrate its overuse by using it to death.
It’s all we’ve got left!

Visuals by Soup Collective –Royal College of Art Moving Image Collective
Conspiracists and doubters: we provide a room for your turgid debates (the anechoic chamber at Salford University).

I made a film called DID WE GO?
I was paid $65,000 from the State of Ohio to try and prove we really landed on the moon.

I traveled all over OHIO trying to get Neil to talk…he will not talk to anyone.

Here is link to my film on youtube. It opens with me on WLW-AM Radio in Ohio, trying to reach out to Neil
