KAFKA CHIC – A Festival Radio Broadcast
written by Michael Somerset-Ward and Dean Honer.

KAFKA CHIC is a new festival experience – a special radio broadcast of a newly commissioned radio docu-drama exploring the musical history of one of the UK’s most musically inspirational cities – Sheffield.

Digital radios will be available at various cafés in Brighton and Sheffield for your listening pleasure, so do come along and tune in to this premiere broadcast.
Participating cafés in Brighton include the deliciously eccentric Marwood Café in The Lanes and, any Kemp Town coffee aficionados favourite, Redroaster Coffee House.

KAFKA CHIC, written and produced by writer/musician Mick Somerset-Ward and Dean Honer (I Monster, All Seeing I, Eccentronic Research Council), explores the cityʼs musical history contrasting the seminal year of 1980 and now. The narrator is Graham Fellows (aka John Shuttleworth) and other contributors include: Martyn Ware (Heaven 17); Philip Oakey (The Human League); Stephen Mallinder (Wrangler, Cabaret Voltaire); Stephen Singleton (ABC) and Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17). The production also entirely features newly written music by Somerset-Ward and Honer with guest vocalists including Lisa O’Hara (Magpies), Loretta Chantry (Betari’s Box) and Peter Rophone (The Third Half) plus a special contribution from Adi Newton (Clock DVA).
