Sunday October 1st
Hôtel de la Cité 16.00

John Higgs is one of our greatest counter-cultural commentators, with a mind capable of joining the dots between the unlikeliest of 20th century manifestations of pop life. In conversation with the author David Keenan, Higgs will be talking about the newly-updated 10th anniversary edition of his book on the KLF: Chaos, Magic and the Band Who Burned a Million Pounds. Taking in acid house, Discordiansim, the number 23, Robert Anton Wilson, William Blake, Doctor Who, the dogstar Sirius, Alan Watts, Julian Cope, Echo & The Bunnymen, the death knell of 20th century rock/roll as teenage art satori and so much more, this is a conversation set to blow your mind, as Higgs and Keenan expose the hidden wiring of late 20th century counter-culture and re-set the controls for the heart of your favourite reality tunnel.
