We made a short film from our last Klub, featuring Aidan Moffat's filth and the important campaign to save the slow loris. Watch below!

Klub Gutenberg is a new night from The Quietus and Rough Trade Books where we bring together music, science and literature at the Old Queen's Head in Islington. In February, we invited long-time friend of the Quietus Aidan Moffat down to play some songs, and slow loris expert Dr Anna Nekaris came along to talk about this endangered animal (find out more about her important work here.

In our short film from the night (see above), directed by Ethan Reid, Learn! About why the slow loris needs protecting. Hear! Songs old and new Aidan. Discover! More about the girlfriend from that infamous Arab Strap song. Discover! Why you can never trust a narrator. Hear! Aidan Moffat's new children's story (amidst all the muck). Plus you get to see the camera doing something weird and making Quietus Luke look like a sex pest geography teacher in English boy's school, 1958.

The next Klub Gutenberg takes place at the Old Queen's Head in Islington on March 14th 2012. The Sexual Objects will play live with a special guest in the form of a much-loved figure from the post-punk epoch; Robin Turner will be reading from his new book Looking For The Moon Under Water - The Search For The Perfect Pub; and you can win win win with a £50 prize quiz. Jock Scott will also be along to host the evening. Aieeeee! Buy tickets in advance here.
