About Reactor

Reactor is sometimes Rector, aRector or even Ivan’s Dogs with an accent.

To be really reductive and slightly clumsy here, we ring up our mates and say let's get together on Saturday night and have some ‘fun’. No one has any fun, and the next day we get together with another bunch of mates and have some ‘right fun’ about the fact no one had any fun.

Documentation and video excerpts from 'The Gold Ones' at Radar and Plymouth Art Weekender can be viewed here. You can also read Wayne Burrow's take on 'A Weekend of Weird' here, with sexual desire, pantomime horses and Cosmic Care Homes.
