For K-Punk: 50 Years // July ’68

tumblr_pb78pyVuRP1xrfep4o1_1280.png

After the success of our first two nights — ‘For K-Punk‘ and ‘Consciousness Razing‘ — we’re doing one more.

This one is to celebrate what would have been Mark Fisher’s 50th birthday, which falls this year on Wednesday 11th July 2018. A few days later, on Saturday 14th, we’re going to throw one final(?) party, raising money for the Mark Fisher Memorial Fund.

Full lineup and details below, also at 4kpunk.tumblr.com


carcrash is an artist and performer who lives and works in London: Tragedy, care, pain, empathy, red, silver, stardom, war n love n hate n hurt n all that

Plastique Fantastique — a collaboration between David Burrows, Simon O’Sullivan, Alex Marzeta and Vanessa Page (sometimes with others, including Harriet Skully, Ana Benlloch, Stuart Tait, Mark Jackson, Tom Clark, Simon Davenport, Joe Murray, Lawrence Leaman, Samudradaka and Aryapala), is a mythopoetic fiction – an investigation of aesthetics, the sacred, popular culture and politics – produced through comics, performances, text, installations and shrines and assemblages.

Shona Walne is a 22 year old artist and writer from Portsmouth, living in South London. Shona’s practice is basically taking care of her friends, though maybe she definitely does some art. She endlessly manages to balance a full time job as a personal assistant to an artist as well as juggling breakdowns, hangovers and self indulgent performativity. Care is imperative.

English Heretic is a creative research project, in operation since 2003. The musical arm draws inspiration from psychedelic folk, ritual ethnographic recordings, electronica and TV documentaries. English Heretic will present a live review of their audio and literary collaborations with Mark Fisher, including “Plan For the Kidnap of Princess Anne” and the rarely performed and unreleased prose poem, “Unvisited Vastness”, as well as new pieces celebrating the cultural orbit of k-punk.

Kitty McKay is a recent graduate of BA Fine Art and Art History at Goldsmiths. Originally from Liverpool, she attempts to destroy neoliberalism through collective karaoke, which hopefully everyone will shout along with.

Proteus — Underground dark electronica, industrial and body music. Eclectic and enervating.


When: 7pm – 2am, Saturday 14th July
Where: SET 27a Dalston Lane, London E8 3DF

£5 OTD — proceeds will be donated to the Mark Fisher Memorial Fund

All welcome to come and celebrate. Performances start at 8pm. Schedule TBC.
