Sensing Cities Ep. 4: a conversation with Iain Sinclair

On the occasion of his recent publicationAusterlitz and After (Test Centre, 2013), the fourth edition of Sensing Cities invites British writer Iain Sinclair to talk about writing, histories, walking, coincidences, sound, book characters, urban ruins and his way of exploring and narrating the unknown in the city of London. Embarking from Sinclair’s favourite spot in Liverpool Street station where his search of Austerlitz takes place, we then spend some time in the basement of Bishopsgate Institute.

Tune in on June 5th at Resonance FM at 1pm to listen to our discussion.

Iain Sinclair on The Butcher’s Apron

Iain was interviewed by the The Butcher’s Apron Radio show (current episode).

The Butcher’s Apron is a a small local London radio show.

From the B’s A. mailing list:

“After a short rest, The Butchers are back with THE UNKNOWN, going live today on NTS Live between 4 and 5pm, tune in here ( If you miss it, there are tons of other ways to listen – subscribe to us on iTunes ( or download this and past episodes from our website

For this, the 7th episode of The Butcher’s Apron, we step into the unknown
by exploring the mythical tale of The Moleman, we investigate a baffling
and debilitating new disease that has no explanation or cure, rounding up
as usual in the pub with our resident philosopher, Dr Daniel Barnes.

We would also like to take this opportunity to introduce a new member of
The Butcher’s team, our producer Alannah Chance. Alannah comes to us with
a wealth of good experience (BBC Radio 4, 6Music, Strongrooms, we could go
on), and has brought a level of radio craft to the show we never thought
achievable. TBA is set to get better and better, so stay tuned, and stay

As ever, TBA does not just want to make radio for you, we want to make it
with you too, so if you have a story to share, or if you know a person you
think we should meet, please please please get in touch at

Lots of love,

The Butchers”
