Hot off the letter press

: valuable information directly to you about us and everything we have been doing. We aspire to fill this page with brilliance and wonder, though, on slow day, we may just end up reporting about the ducks on the ice. Whatever news we do print, one thing you can be sure of, is that we certainly will not be attempting to fill your heads with pointless opinionated political news casts.

Letter Pressed Valentines card

• Monday 28th Jan 2013
Celebrate your love with serious style this valentines day. Our valentines cards are letter pressed in a mottled ox-blood red ink using a vintage 72pt wooden U, then blind pressed (no ink) with 24pt Garamond metal type and then a neat little heart is dry embossed into the bottom right corner. Not as sleek and perfect as anything you'd find in Clintons, but absolutely gorgeous, tactile and unique!

DITCH#8 Arts &Cuture Radio Show

• Monday 5th Nov 2012

Lazy Gramophone Poet Eliza Gregory talks about our up and coming Time Project and reads some of her work. She also discusses the vocals she recorded with Necro Deathmort of  Distraction Records. You can tune into Eliza by skipping to 38 minutes, after the Bo Ningen Interview. But by all means listen to the whole show, it's a real corker.

DITCH #8, is an Arts & Culture Radio show produced and presented by Nia, Tom du Croz & Pearl Wise, with guests Ana Xavier & Nico. This week features an interview with play-write Nadia Latif who has her current play on at the Arcola Theatre, Nico catches the band Bo Ningen at Rough Trade, poet Eliza Gregory joins us in the studio and reads some of her work and Paul Drury tells us about Movemeber and The Jewish Film Festival.

A small but oh so significant feature in the globally recognised Reading Chronicle.

"To celebrate, we are returning to C.A.M.P with one of its finest lineups ever: WahWah45′s own Adam Scrimshire will be performing a full live band rendition of his critically acclaimed 2011 album 'The Hollow.' He is joined by Shakka- possibly the most exciting UK artist in recent years, and Cinematic Orchestra's Heidi Vogel. On the Spoken Word front, we're bringing you the quick witted, sharp eyed and humorous Alex Gwyther, and the Poetic Soundsystem brilliance that is The Insomniax."
