The Gluts – Gig and Premier of ‘The Gluts Go To Copenhagen’

“Responding to a global crisis by forming a girl band!”

A valentines premier of the musical documentary ‘The Gluts Go To Copenhagen’ followed by a unique gig by The Gluts!

The Gluts (Gina Birch, Kaffe Matthews and Hayley Newman) took their DIY eco-absurdo-feminist musical ‘Café Carbon’ to the streets and bars of Copenhagen for the COP 15 Climate Summit in 2009, where they joined other concerned citizens urging governments around the world to act on climate change.

‘The Gluts Go To Copenhagen’ is a 36 minute record of their dilettante trip to the summit on the specially commissioned climate train, packed with 900 other activists. In the video you can watch them prepare for the trip; rehearse their moves and transform into Gluts. Once at the summit they sing and dance in a bakery, a bar, on the march and in front of police lines: narrowly missing mass arrest. On return to London, disappointed by the outcome of the summit but not without hope, they express their anger in an outpouring of rage in an empty tube carriage.

Includes remixes by Eqyptian DJ Mutamassik and Bruce Gilbert.
