Bill Aitchison – Vinyl. This coming Saturday! Do not miss!

This Saturday there is a one-off chance to catch the spoken word/music show Vinyl at the fabulous Pie & Vinyl Cafe in Southsea. What’s more, this is a free event, a warm up show for the tour that follows. Can’t say fairer than that!

7.30 start but come before to be sure to get a seat. As always be selling pie& mash, drinks and records…perfect tea time watching. Details below.



Vinyl by Bill Aitchison

One day Bill discovered that the number 1 on the day he was born was Granddad by Clive Dunn, a song so bad, in so many ways, that it is in its own special way remarkable. From that discovery Vinyl is the natural consequence: a track for each year of his life. As it’s name suggests this is an all vinyl show but be warned, Bill’s record collection is pretty damn diverse even perverse and for Vinyl he delves deep into it and talks about the tracks and about what the music means, about the memories these tracks evoke and the decades that have brought us to where we now are. For Vinyl he recalls, revises and retells what these black plastic discs might be records of.

In the Vinyl playlist you can expect anything from the self-styled ‘worst orchestra in the world’ The Portsmouth Sinfonia to the apocalyptic metal anthem The Final Countdown by way of Boy Bands, Buddhist Chants and Bebop. Bill is no normal DJ and his stories are as diverse, idiosyncratic and pointed as the music he plays.

Vinyl is the most recent show from performance artist Bill Aitchison whose work has entertained and confounded the expectations of audiences across Europe, Asia, America and The Middle East. Known for his work’s unpredictability and wry humour, he has been predicting the apocalypse, dancing Agadoo, performing in Chinese and now, with Vinyl, sharing his highly questionable record collection.
