Title: Not Them/Not Us
"Penny Rimbaud is a poet, drummer, writer, former member of the performance art group EXIT and co-founder of the anarchist punk band Crass, with Steve Ignorant in 1977.
He also set up the anarchist/pacifist Dial House community in 1967 with Gee Vaucher and Phil Russell and helped to instigate the free festival movement.
An ardent, articulate and still angry polemicist, his works include Reality Asylum, Rocky Eyed and Oh America. Says Rimbaud of his own legacy: "our response to things wasnt a musician or a lyrical response, it was a political response."
Louise Elliott an Australian tenor saxophonist and has performed with a wealth of international musicians. Originally known for her appearances with cult rock outfits Laughing Clowns, The Saints, Ed Kuepper and Paul Kelly, Louise has a fiery commitment to inspiring and energetic live performance which has been referred to in the media as "her profoundly diverse smorgasbord of funk, blues and rock" and "an African inspired jazz explosion". She has played with Penny Rimbaud for 9 years." - Seomra Spraoi.
