Abbodies Cold : Spectre

Nicky Melville More by this author...£8.00RRP £8

Nicky Melville's ABBODIES COLD is a hilarious, heartbreaking, and ferocious record of our times. As neoliberal technocapitalism and fascism negotiate over the finer details of Brexit, pop legends ABBA team up with problematic fave James Bond to try to make sense of it all.

"Nothing is connected to everything is connected to something. My magical thinking led me to chaos magic which referenced Arthur Koestler's The Roots of Coincidence. There is no coincidence, only the illusion of coincidence. Perfect. I'd never heard of this book, but knew Koestler was into the paranormal, there's a parapsychology unit at the University of Edinburgh named after him. I've done some volunteering for it. Including a sleep experiment investigating precognition in dreams. It was weird as. Kind of worked. There was a creepy researcher who suggested he come to my flat and do experiments while I slept, if I was interested in more."
