The groundbreaking White Noise album, An Electric Storm, is celebrated this Saturday at The British Library.
Organised by our friends at Delia Derbyshire Day, there are a series of events planned throughout the day, including a contribution from Delia’s bandmates Brian Hodgson and David Vorhaus.
The day will also include a special screening of a 20 minute audio feature produced by Lead Researcher and Curator of the Delia audio archive in Manchester, David Butler. This includes contributions from Adrian Utley (Portishead), Martyn Ware (The Human League, BEF, Heaven 17), Chris+Cosey (Throbbing Gristle), and our own Ian Campbell.
