On a Routemaster bus
Spitalfields Market, 2009. There were only five people in the audience, which was about as many as you’d want in a bus. I sold two books though, which is a good ratio.
In a curiosity shop in Hackney
I think it was run by artist collective LE GUN. The audience stood, while I sat. In the window display. 2007.
On the same bill as Alan Moore
Also, Iain Sinclair and a man bashing the f**k out of sheet metal. Sage Gateshead, 2010. I got a great back-handed compliment in this review.
This was more about the political context than the physical location (a bar in Exarchia), as there were anti-government protests and riots almost every day of my trip, and I read a rather inflammatory piece called ‘Athens Burns’. 2010. I blogged about it here.
In the Gents
Filthy McNasty’s pub, Islington as part of an event called The Washroom Projects, 2005. It was rammed, and a bit smelly.
And where would I like to read next?
