Atomic Bark! Beyond The Valley Of The Cult!

Raquel Welch: Space Girl Dance (1970’s)

ATOMIC BARK! is a multimedia artform-project, created, produced and presented by broadcaster, journalist and artist James DC. It consists of a weekly radio show, monthly film club, social meet-up and film/arts reviews. Atomic Bark! explores science fiction, horror, fantasy, speculative fiction, the uncanny and surrealism, as well as various types of alternative/subversive culture, in all mediums and formats, including literature, cinema, comic-books, art, music, science, philosophy and more, within the Atomic Bark! remit.

The live, 1-hour radio shows on Resonance FM are produced and hosted by myself, James DC. They consist of group discussions (sometimes interspersed with relevant audio tracks) with a variety of experts, aficionado’s and informed guests, on all manner of topics and themes relating to the above subjects. They are repeated on Resonance FM a few days later, with podcasts available on my blog, shortly afterwards. All of the previous shows are now uploaded – click on ‘Podcast Archive’, above.

The ATOMIC BARK! FILM CLUB showcases obscure and rarely screened cult films, every month, FREE, at a cool venue in central London.

The next film club presents a special Czech Cult Classics Double Bill as part of the nationwide Scala Beyond film festival on Tuesday September 4th, 2012, at The Plough (upstairs) at The Plough, 27 Museum Street, London, WC1A 1LH :  THE FABULOUS BARON MUNCHAUSEN (aka ‘Baron Prásil’ : Karel Zeman, 1962) and THE CREMATOR (Juraj Herz, 1969).

The ATOMIC BARK! CAVE-IN is a monthly social meet-up/forum for like-minded people – interested in Atomic Bark! type subjects – in which to meet new friends and engage in intelligent, but fun and informal debates, whilst drinking beer, or similar! Anyone is welcome. The last, very successful Cave-in was on Sunday July 1st, 2012 from 5pm until 11pm, at The Coronet (pub) 338-346 Holloway Road, North London, N7 6NJ. The next one will be sometime in October, probably at the same venue. Click on ‘Cave-in’ above, for more info soon.
