If you’re anything like us, then you’ve enjoyed peering through the fence at Scarfolk and running away screaming. Well now there is nowhere to run! AAARRRHHH. What I mean is, there a new book!
Scarfolk is a town in north-west England stuck in the 1970s. A hallucinogenic nightmare recollection of 70s England. An uncomfortable nostalgia for a simpler time, when communities were bonded around an unremitting fear of rabies and imminent nuclear annihilation. Sinister children, startling imagery and bewildering public information films. If you find terror-inducing drabness with a dash of Satanism, funny, then you will like this.

A film of Jez Butler and Polly Hulse (aka The Twelve Hour Foundation) performing Felix at the Barefoot Sanctuary in North Berwick on the last night of their tour around the furthest reaches of Scotland supporting screenings of Dummy Jim.
Jez Butler’s Moog Rogue packed up the night before so DJ Bongoboy stepped in and leant him an Arturia Minibrute. Unfortunately, there were a couple of technical hitches (as you will see above) but we got there in the end.
You can hear the album cut of Felix on PMB188: Vision Receiver.
