The Lighthouse Invites the Storm (electric)
In tandem with the Malcolm Lowry Under the Volcano conference, artists Alan Dunn, Jeff Young and Martin Heslop have been commissioned to explore Lowry’s relationship with his New Brighton birthplace, working with retired merchant seafarers from Mariners’ Park.
For the performance The Lighthouse Invites the Storm Martin Heslop and Jeff Young will be joined onstage by Liverpool’s musical maverick Jack Roberts, multi-instrumentalist Vidar Norheim and singer-songwriter Mersey Wylie. Encompassing live music, film projection, spoken word and songs, this mesmerising new piece weaves together Lowry’s alcoholic visions, the dreams and memories of retired mariners, and the forces of river and ocean to take the audience on a Lowryesque journey into the heart of the storm.

003, 1976, 23, 23 Enigma Vortex Sutra, Book, Everyman, Illuminatus, Jeff Young, Ken Campbell, Lear, Liverpool, Mathew Street, Max Wall, Stuplex
Published by Stuplex, 23 Enigma Vortex Sutra is limited to 230 copies, 115 of which are available with a CD of a live performance recorded at the Liverpool Everyman on 23 October 2014.
On November 23rd 1976, Ken Campbell is walking down Mathew Street, a hobgoblin mix of Max Wall and Lear on the Heath, striding amidst a pandemonium of mongrels and fleas, pockets full of chicken bones and piano keys for teeth.
Pages torn from the play Illuminatus blowing from his hands, around his skull the mad birds of genius flutter, in a whirl of wild words from other worlds and other lands he staggers and he skips down the Liverpool gutter.
Copies are available in the Stuplex shop now:
