HARRY SWORD, MONOLITHIC UNDERTOW: LIVE Q&A HOSTED BY STEPHEN MALLINDER (CABARET VOLTAIRE)
Rough Trade are very excited to present this Interactive Live Stream Q&A with author Harry Sword joining special guest host Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire) for an intimate in-conversation. This event celebrates the release of 'Monolithic Undertow: In Search of Sonic Oblivion', the new book published by White Rabbit.
Monolithic Undertow alights a crooked path across musical, religious and subcultural frontiers. It traces the line from ancient traditions to the modern underground, navigating archaeoacoustics, ringing feedback, chest plate sub-bass, avant-garde eccentricity, sound weaponry and fervent spiritualism.
From Neolithic beginnings to bawdy medieval troubadours, Sufi mystics to Indian raga masters, cone shattering dubwise bass, Hawkwind's Ladbroke Grove to the outer reaches of Faust and Ash Ra Temple; the hash-fuelled fug of The Theatre of Eternal Music to the cough syrup reverse hardcore of Melvins, seedy VHS hinterland of Electric Wizard, ritual amp worship of Earth and Sunn O))) and the many touch points in between, Monolithic Undertow explores the power of the drone - an audio carrier vessel capable of evoking womb like warmth or cavernous dread alike.
‘An inspired and intuitive navigation of the drone continuum, Monolithic Undertow maps the heavy underground with a compass firmly set to new and enlightening psychedelic truths.’ BECK
