An exploration into Caught By The River with John Andrews, Will Burns, Martha Sprackland and Adelle Stripe.
Caught By The River began as an idea, a vision and a daydream shared between friends one languid bankside spring afternoon. It was conceived as an online meeting place for pursuits of a distinctly non-digital variety: walking, fishing, looking, thinking. Birdsong and beer. Adventure and poetry. Life’s small pleasures, in all their many flavours. It was – and still is – about stepping out of daily routines to re-engage with nature. Finding new rhythms. Being.
Launched in May 2007, other contributors to the website have included Bill Drummond, Chris Yates, Laura Beatty, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Jon Savage, Jarvis Cocker, Alice Oswald, Edwyn Collins and Irvine Welsh.
Caught By The River had grown to include a fanzine, An Antidote To Indifference, and a festival on the banks of the Thames.
Where Are We Now? will be a summer festival like no other: a gathering of time-served trouble-makers, spoken word rebels, artistic mavericks and leftfield music pioneers. We’ll be converging on the city of Hull to ask of today’s counter-culture the soaring, searching question with which David Bowie kissed us goodbye.
