The Quietus Hour Show 35: A COUM Transmissions Hull Special
Luke Turner , April 6th, 2017 12:53

John Doran, Luke Turner, Todd The Dog and producer Seb White present a Quietus Hour COUM Transmissions radio special from Hull City Of Culture 2017

Last month, The Quietus travelled to Hull for the final weekend of events that we programmed with Cosey Fanni Tutti and Cabinet Gallery to run alongside the COUM Transmissions retrospective at the Humber Street Gallery. Anthony Child AKA Tony Surgeon played a vivid soundtrack to a recontextualised and edited version of Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls and Carter Tutti Void closed things beautifully with one of their most intense and perfect sets. Earlier in the day we set up a temporary Quietus Hour Studio in the gallery café to produce a special edition of our wireless programme and podcast devoted to COUM and its legacy. Tune into the show to hear to Luke and John speak to Cosey, Hull City Of Culture's Sam Hunt and Sophie Coletta about the exhibition, as well as some passable chat on JDo's former Hull home, including Dead Bod the infamous graffiti seagull. As Todd the dog barks in the background we play music from the COUM diaspora, including Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey, Coil, Carter Tutti Void and Psychic TV. Thanks to our producer Seb White and all at Hull City Of Culture 2017. Subscribe to The Quietus Hour Podcast on iTunes here.
