Yoko Ono’s early 1970s albums have just been reissued on vinyl, so time for a reappraisal of this remarkable artist, musician and icon, including tracks from throughout her career and some associated Fluxus. In addition, we have obituarities for Sam Shephard, Peter Principle of Tuxedo Moon and Glenn Campbell, and focus on art exhibitions at Liverpool Tate, Henry Moore Institute and the Turner Contemporary, Margate. All in just over an hour with music from Ono, Beck, Kurt Schwitters, Patti Smith and others.

Even though the Other Room frequently features three performers from the more experimental end of the poetry spectrum,
its rare that you can find more than cursory connections between them. On the surface, Alec Newman, Nat Raha and Seekers of Lice (actually a solo artist, called, I think, Anne), hadn’t much in common either but coincidentally all read sequences, and had some element of the improvisational in work that was otherwise very structured.
