Latest Project

we are working on a collaboration between Dead Rat Orchestra and artist/filmmaker James Holcombe - an experimental 16mm documentary which explores the history and legacy of London's Tyburn Gallows - the city's principal hanging spot for 600 years. The film charts an alternative history of the UK, illuminating the twists and turns of sovereign and political whimsy, church and state, and the birth of mercantile capitalism. TYBURNIA highlights parallels between our past and our present, raising questions about the nature of power.

There will be a presentation of a live soundtrack to the film at (or close to) gallows sites across the country
