Deathtrap: TV Killing Video and More

Feb 22, 2012

As part of Deathtrap, the final event at Reactor Towers before is was demolished, Reactor collaborated with Mark Gubb on throwing a TV ‘out the window’. After having sat in Reactor Towers for the past 8 or 9 years, its final day came playing a VHS tape of various rock music videos and interviews supplied by Mark for about 8 or 9 hours. Then it was carried out on to the balcony and thrown off whilst still switched on and playing with volume turned right up. Song at time of death is ‘Inner Self’ by Sepultura from their ‘Beneath the Remains’ album, so Mark reliably tells me. RIP TV.

Variations: Open Ended Ending by Bruce Asbestos recorded at Deathtrap’s ‘Terry’s Back Passage’ no holds barred open mic that went on late into the night.
