The first live event since the launch of the Agit Disco project six years ago. This benefit for Housemans Bookshop had 16 Agit Disco selectors working simultaneously on two floors of the Surya Centre from 7pm until 12 or later. Thanks to Nik Gorecki at Housemans for organising it. Plenty of people came and there was a good vibe in spite of the rather short sets.

One of the headline acts to go on at 11pm is PAUL JAMROZY who was co-architect of ‘Agitative Industrialists’ Test Dept formed in the decaying docklands of South London in the early eighties. TD created percussive music with industrial debris and electronics, producing large-scale location responsive projects. Their infamous sonic assaults were regarded as a test of physical endurance that pushed the sonic envelope. Their work developed with the advent of new technology journeying through the underground dance scene and into hybrid global music.

Post TD his individual practice evolved within the wider digital diaspora of experimental sound artists and electronic practitioners. He has worked under many guises including Satellitic, Deep Face, Full Spectrum Dominance and most recently C.3.3. inspired by his music workshops inside Reading Gaol. His Polish background has also had a strong influence on his work and led to the formation of Bigos Planet an Anglo-Polish cultural radio programme for Resonance FM.
