I’ve just received an email from Londonmobs (see below) for what is known as a ‘mobile disco’ at Liverpool Street Station tomorrow. I’ve heard it claimed that this synchronised outburst of dancing in a non-defined dancing space is an act of Situationist detournement. I have witnissed (and taken part in) a stunt of sorts in the same place, with my old mucker Russell Brand dressed as the Elephant Man stopping people for a chat (we were making a gonzo comedy terrorist documentary about the degeneration of Old Spitalfields Market). He was moved on by the police eventually. Wonder whether the authorities will feel similarly challenged tomorrow? Guy Debord will be turning in his grave.
