In occasione della Giornata internazionale della donna è andato in onda ieri uno speciale episodio di Late Junction (BBC Radio 3) condotto da Verity Sharp e dedicato ai collettivi musicali di sole donne, con la partecipazione in studio di Maggie Nichols (fondatrice con Lindsay Cooper del Feminist Improvising Group, nel 1977), Verity Susman (già in Electrelane) e Amble Skuse (tuttora nell'Orchestra For Females And Laptops): lo si può riascoltare ancora per qualche giorno in https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09th2st

As part of BBC Radio 3's schedule marking International Women's Day, Verity Sharp celebrates the female musical collective in all its forms, styles, and structures. A special Late Junction collaboration session has been assembled for the occasion, featuring members of notable performance collectives past and present. Our unique, one-off trio features: Maggie Nichols, who co-founded the Feminist Improvising Group; Verity Susman, formerly of Electrelane; and Amble Skuse, a member of the Orchestra For Females And Laptops aka OFFAL. Tonight, hear the results of this historic, improvised musical meeting, as well as a roundtable conversation between participants on the history and future of the female collective.
