Save Event: Dump it on Parliament Revisited

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


In 1986 musicians produced Dump it on Parliament: 1986 Luton Compilation cassette, as a protest against dumping nuclear waste in Bedfordshire. Working with local bands & young people, we revisit the original compilation with Bedfordshire bands producing covers of the original tracks and new tracks.


There will be no silence at Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre when this raucous gig creates a new living history artwork, as Bedfordshire’s original post-punk mantel gets taken on by modern musical upstarts for the live recording of a unique compilation tape.

Created by Artists DashnDem and Roshi Nasehi, the project, which will pay homage to a 1986 cassette tape called Dump it on Parliament, made in protest of a proposed nuclear waste dump in the county and created by local alternative musicians including The Twitch, Karma Sutra and Click Click.

Dump it on Parliament Revisited is being produced in partnership with Steve Spon, the frontman of influential Bedfordshire band UK Decay, who inadvertently coined the musical genre term ‘Goth’ that helped inspire a movement spawning the likes of Siouxsie & The Banshees and pre-fame Adam & The Ants.

Steve has worked with local bands to produce covers of the original tracks and create new songs for the performance while, on the night, there will be surprise dramatic, theatrical interventions from Adventures in Theatre, Grove Youth Theatre and Arts Leaders.
