RADIO JOY live broadcast – the Foundry Sunday 7th March 8pm

March 7th, 2010

Everybody's got some

Text & visuals from – Nicola Wayne Maskrey, Inga Tillery, Tracey Moberly

Dancing songs from DJs Gavin Martin and Johny Mugwump


Ten years ago Tracey Moberly produced a show at the Foundry in Hoxton whose title LOVES DIRTY HABIT came from a Band of Holy Joy song. The premise as I remember it was that we set a thousand pink balloons up in to the night sky with a mobile phone number on and a request for any balloon finders to text in their ‘Love’s Dirty Habit’. The answers would be stuck on the gallery walls in the basement of the Foundry. The new language and future of communication was uppermost in our minds but we also wanted to throw a great party. The opening night was a blur of pink balloons and scuzzy texts that were zapped in from the hinterlands of London.  It was a great night and a supreme show if memory serves.

Tracey has kept the project very much alive and a decade on we revisit the notion. Nicola Jayne Maskrey and Inga Tillere will take Tracey’s texts and set about visualising them from a new perspective. The Band Of Holy Joy will play a live set from a collection of songs they are about to release called PARAMOUR, songs which are very much about Love’s Dirty Habits: Betrayals, lustings, casual sexual murderings that kind of low and grand déclassé behaviour. As the Foundry is about to close its doors soon we would love to make this event as memorable as the first. Indeed… We want your texts and we want you to come. 7th March is the date 8pm is the time and the Foundry is the place. On Valentines Day we will issue a number. We want you to use it.

Radio Joy will broadcast the entire evening. The DJ’s Gavin Martin and Jonny Mugwump will spin the songs to keep the night flowing. James S Finn will supply a soundscape. The immense Andrew Bailey will perform a twenty-minute set.
