Fred Macpherson (Spector) -'Hands Up Who Wants to Die: Songs of Rejection and Reflection'


June 11, 2011

Time: 2:30am

Named after the classic opening lyric of The Birthday Party’s ‘Sonny’s Burning’, ‘Hands Up Who Wants to Die’ is an hour of music for the despairing and disenchanted; a late night foray into some of the more brooding records in my collection. From iconoclastic legends to forgotten NME hype bands and unsung grime heroes, ‘Hands Up…’ isn’t a show bound by genre, but emotion - so tie yourself to your most uncomfortable chair and get ready for the comedown.
