The Wire On Air: Charity Case Part Two: Finding God, The Holy Spirit And Other Worlds In The Bargain Bins

Second-hand guru Ian Penman returns to Resonance FM for another Charity Case show, this time seeking out otherworldly and spiritual vibrations in the bargain bins. From field recordings of religious ceremonies to private press New Age oddities, isolation tank bliss-out to Voodoo rave, Sufi blues to Moroccan trance, these discs provide a dizzying alternative to the usual Christmas week carol service. Ian Penman explores some of his discoveries from charity shops in London and beyond; with the stress this time very much on the Beyond. The Shadow knows.

Resonance FM, 19 December, 9-10:30pm.
