Songs for the End of the World
It's the near future, or maybe it's the 1950's, definitely one of the two, and the little English town of Ashcomb is about to get blown to smithereens in a cataclysmic apocalyptic meltdown of unknown proportions. Musician/theatre maker Dom Coyote (Kneehigh) and a room full of fantastic artists are about to delve into this bizarre world of 1950's B-movies, rock n roll, skittle, 70's synths, homemade instruments, old news reels and epic storytelling. Inspired by Philip K Dick's classic novel Dr. Bloodmoney, the star-gazing world of David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and classic 1950s sci-fi movies, this is a Scratch not to be missed....Oh, and there's a big communal kazoo playing bit in it too.
