The Prisoner

4, 5, 7 March 2015, The Crypt, Camberwell

In the dark of Camberwell Crypt, Filthy Lucre explored imprisonment and release, confinement and ecstasy, through light, noise and song. Inspired by Gil Scott-Heron's searing work, The Prisoner, Filthy Lucre performed music ranging from the murder ballads of Tom Waits to the numerological experiments of George Crumb.
