Former fashion designer Wayne Hemingway has been paying rather a lot of attention to all things architectural of late, and next week he's pushing that relationship one step further - he'll be spinning discs at the V&A on an architectural theme. And the playlist makes entertaining reading - 130 delights await, including well-known tracks such as 'Concrete Jungle' from Bob Marley and the Wailers, 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' by Simon and Garfunkel, and 'Breaking Glass' by Hazel O'Connor, to less obvious numbers. They include 'Cement' from Feeder, 'Strategies Against Architecture' by Einsturzende Neubauten, and the wonderfulsounding 'Tear the Roof off the Sucker' by Funkadelic. Others we liked: 'When I'm Cleaning Windows' by the George Family, 'The Sound of the Suburbs'by The Members, and of course, the classic 'I'm the Urban Spaceman' by the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. Presumably, some house and some garage music is also on the agenda.
Hemingway is on at the V&A from 6.30pm-10pm on 28 June.
