We’ve managed to put together a star studded line-up for what will be a very special night, with

- a DJ set from Andrew Weatherall comprised exclusively from Jaki's discography as featured in the book.

and live music celebrating Jaki’s legacy from:

Drums Off Chaos: Reiner Linke, Maf Retter and Manos Tsangaris

- Jochen Irmler (Faust)

- Michael Rother (Neu)

- Rosko Gee (Can) and Dominik von Senger (Phantom Band)

- Ann-Yi Eötvös

- Jono Podmore and Ian Tregoning

- Bryan O'Connell and Whirling Hall Of Knives

There will be readings from the book by co-authors John Payne, Manos Tsangaris and Jono Podmore and also a video installation by diz_qo, presenting Jaki’s fascinating graphic work and exclusive photos from the private archive, which also form the visual backdrop for the live performances.


Copies of the hard back will be available on the night and still available on pre-order.


Thank you once again for all your support in getting us to this point and I look forward to seeing as many of you at the party as possible!
