Event Details

Penny Rimbaud performs ‘How?’, his rewrite/update of Allen Ginsberg’s ‘Howl’, accompanied by cellist Kate Shortt. ‘How?’ pushes off with the lines – ‘I saw the best minds of my generation gagged by the opiate of capital; fallen angels busting for a budgetary fix, established Christs nailed to cash or crucifix’ – and then follows the form and tempo of Ginsberg’s masterwork. Both a fitting tribute to Ginsberg himself and a profound criticism of today’s commodity culture and its obsession with empty celebrity.EndFragment
