CAUGHT BY THE RIVER: BOOK OF THE MONTH

Screen Shot 2017-09-04 at 16.22.51

This month’s Caught By The River Book Of The Month is:

2023: A TRILOGY BY THE JUSTIFIED ANCIENTS OF MU MU

“Well we’re back again,
They never kicked us out,
twenty thousand years of
SHOUT SHOUT SHOUT”

Down through the epochs and out across the continents, generation upon generation of the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu have told variants of the same story – an end of days story, a final chapter story. But one with hope, even if the hope at times seems forlorn.

The story contained in this trilogy is the latest telling. Here it is presented as a utopian costume drama, set in the near future, written in the recent past.
Read with care.

In the Spring of 2013, the undertakers Cauty & Drummond were on a tour of the Western Isles of Scotland. It was while staying at Jura’s one hotel that they came across a strange-looking book. The book was titled Back in the USSR and authored by someone using the name of Gimpo. Back in the USSR was the memoir of a young woman who had been a nurse in the Falklands War in 1982.

Gimpo ended up in Kiev in what was then the Soviet state of The Ukraine. Here she met with two women named Tat’jana and Kristina who went under numerous aliases, the most widely used being The KLF. Also in Back in the USSR it was claimed that Tat’jana and Kristina had been heavily influenced by a book originally written in English as The Twenty Twenty-Three! Trilogy by someone calling themselves George Orwell. But this George Orwell was in turn the pen name of Roberta Antonia Wilson.

What you are about to read is what they read – well, almost. As for Back in the USSR, if we are able to sell the initial edition of this book and make a return on our investment, we hope to publish that. As for the current whereabouts of Tat’jana and Kristina, we have no idea. They were last seen disappearing into the depths of the Black Sea in their decommissioned Project 865 Piranha submarine. This supposed disappearance happened on 23 August 1994. Rumour on the internet has it they would not reappear for another twenty-three years.

The Quietus Need Your Help

DFG0vt-XYAAoIld

Our friends at The Quietus did a WHOLE DAY of radio interviews, live shows and music to celebrate their 9th birthday.

More importantly though – they highlighted how they need YOUR HELP to survive.

The Quietus is one of our favourite music websites. It’s more than just reviews – it’s a site that informs, introduces and goes out of it’s way to deliver original, ground-breaking and engaging content.

If you need any more reason than that to donate then head here.

But, as The Quietus founders John Doran & Luke Turner point out, if you have found just one new band you love flicking through their site in the last 9 years – their worth saving right?

Make Noise is put on in association with European Recycling Platform and Heavenly Recordings and is a FREE initiative to help raise awareness about the importance of recycling electronic goods. To help channel this message, we ask everyone to bring along an old or unwanted handheld electronic item for recycling to gain entry to our events. This could be a broken hairdryer, a drowned phone, busted iPod or even a couple of old batteries – anything that’s electrical – and they will get access to the night!

We have previously put on events in London, Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff, Leeds, Bristol, Nottingham, Bangor, Newcastle, Brighton, Edinburgh and Dundee
