Ed Barton & The Baby men

Live Art

Manchester born poet, artist and musician Edward Barton who wrote songs for Kylie Minogue and Orbital will be giving a performance lecture musically assisted by The Babymen. He will give a playful insight into his music making methods and lyrical techniques.

All you need to bring for this one is a pen and paper, but most importantly, an open-mind!

Barton is known for his eccentric stage performances and use of home-made instruments. He has had top 30 success as a songwriter with hits including 'It's a Fine Day' (Opus III), 'Confide in Me' (Kylie Minogue), 'Halcyon' (Orbital) and 'Happiness' (Pizzaman). In 1989, released through Barton's own label Wooden Records, an LP called Edward Not Edward featured covers of Barton songs by diverse artists like The Inspiral Carpets, 808 State, Dub Sex, Ted Chippington, Louis Phillipe and A Guy Called Gerald. Barton was a regular fixture of the eighties music scene in Manchester, supporting bands such as Stump. His television appearances have included performances on The Tube and Tony Wilson's The Other Side of Midnight. He was rumoured to have appeared on Wogan in the late 80s playing guitar in Tears for Fears' backing band. His radio appearances have included at least one guest spot on The Mark Radcliffe Show.

Len Horsey - Interactive Make Yourself a Pop Star Workshop

The FLUX residency kicks off with artist and musician extraordinaire, Len Horsey, who will make you a pop star for the day!
Just bring your favourite song on a CD or an mp3, or bring an instrument and be creative. This doesn't mean you have to bring a cello, just something that you can make noise with - a pair of spoons would do! Bring a change of clothes too - the more eccentric the better as Len will help you develop your own alter ego and write a pop sensation! Get involved and lose yourself for the day.
Len's work combines a love of narrative, whether written or visual, with an a celebration of human imperfection and fakery. Horsey uses a selection of alter ego's in the performance, painting, objects, filmmaking and writing to reveal a paradoxical world that is both challenging and flippant; toeing the line between crass servitude and creative freedom. The guidelines for construction and performance are as rigid as they are bent.
