Starting on midnight of the 25th January, Resonance FM will be broadcasting a series of specially-commissioned collaborations between writers and musicians, Weird Tales For Winter, curated by the incomparable Jonny Mugwump.
The first story sees Moon Wiring Club work on a short piece by the late Nigel Kneale, author of Quatermass, The Stone Tape and The Year of the Sex Olympics. I had the honour of interviewing Nigel Kneale for my TV show SF:UK, which you can watch here.
The second Weird Tale for Winter is my own The Dinner Party Wars, a story I rewrote and performed after the death of JG Ballard, as my own modest tribute to the great prophet of futuristic psychopathy. The West Norwood Cassette Library have done a fantastic job in hewing, smoothing and varnishing my raw recording, adding a rumbling bassline and various sonic constructs that any writer would be pleased to find himself within.
