Organ preview, a quick parish notice of an Organ Thing today for William D Drake has let it be known that he will be answering questions this coming Sunday alongside the showing of Maresnest as part of the Barnes Film Festival. Both the showing of the film and the question and answer session will be on-line events. Will anyone ask Bill what the colour of the gig was? “What’s the colour of the gig Billl?” yelled Tim, “Yellow Tim!” answered William, but that wasn’t Maresnest where all things glittered, it was Yellow at the Fetchham Riverside where people danced like bears, oh ho we miss it all. …
“The near-legendary British band Cardiacs were renowned for pummelling the senses with mind-bending sound and exuberant colour. ‘Maresnest’, a concert recorded in a church in Salisbury in 1990, provides a perfectly surreal introduction to their elaborate, theatrical world. This screening will be followed by a Q&A with William D Drake of Cardiacs on the Film Festival hub at 7.20pm”.
“Hear from Cardiac’s classic line-up keyboardist, William D. Drake, speak with author and journalist Cathi Unsworth about the band’s film, “All That Glitters Is A Maresnest”.
