The Bear Pit
Bear Gardens
London SE1 9EB

London Town's finest cassette-only label, The Tapeworm, presents its third annual event in the Capital. Exemplary music and much excitement is to be expected from a line-up of the label's mates.

Mr Ken Hollings, a writer of note, shall be reading his text from the first Bookworm publication, to be launched on the same night. Sweden's BJNilsen will be flying in and making a splendid noise for you all. A second Swede, CM von Hausswolff (he's a king, dontchaknow…) will share a stage with Touch's Mike Harding, in a reading of Edgar Allen Poe like none before… Cult vs. occult - former Medicine Head man Peter Hope-Evans and illustrator Savage Pencil will whip up a dark blue storm. Mr Pencil's fine drawings shall also be on display. Hopping on the bus from Elephant & Castle is Zerocrop and his band; pop perfection from a local lad. And finally, a London eye - video installation by Vicki Bennett, aka People Like Us.

Plus! Last minute additions!! Special guest artist Joachim Nordwall plays his “Ignition” album, live; and special ghost artist Michael Esposito does some spooky shit. How exciting!!! Plus, Dale Cornish from the Baraclough groop will be spinning the cassettes of steel.
