Saturday 16 March 2019
6:30PM - 7:30PM

Will Ashon, former music journalist and founder of Big Dada Records, tells, in 36 interlinked ‘chambers’, the story of WuTang Clan’s debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) and how it changed the world. 

As unexpected and complex as the album itself, Ashon’s book 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. 

Exploring the FBI’s war on drugs, porn theatres of 42nd street, the history of jazz and future of politics, Chamber Music is an explosive and revelatory new way of writing about music and culture.

Chaired by Vic Galloway.
