Book launch of Chamber Music : Enter the Wu-Tang with Will Ashon
December 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Book launch Chamber Music : Enter the Wu-Tang (in 36 Pieces), with Will Ashon. Thursday 6th December at 5pm (not 6pm). Free entry. Local author, DJ and music journalist, Ben Thompson, will be hosting the event & there will be a Q&A with Will Ashon. Printed Matter Bookshop, 185 Queens Road, TN34 1RG.
Will Ashon tells, in 36 interlinked ‘chambers’, the story of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) and how it changed the world. As unexpected and complex as the album itself, Chamber Music ranges from provocative essays to semi-comic skits, from deep scholarly analysis to satirical celebration, seeking to contextualise, reveal and honour this singularly composite work of art. From the FBI’s war on drugs to the porn theatres of 42nd street, from the history of jazz to the future of politics, Chamber Music is an explosive and revelatory new way of writing about music and culture.
