Rare chance to see two of yesterday's cultural heroes W.H. Auden and Stephen Spender at the ICA on Friday. Another good commercial show from the Institute of Con-temporary Arts? You can also see Hypnosis demonstrated on Monday.
Two benefits for Ian and Jake on Friday (with plays and films) and Saturday (with groups) at the N. London Poly. 'Growing Up' gets a showing on Sun and there's an Angela Davis meeting on Wed.
Things are beginning to move again for the autumn. See the column for workshops and readings. There's a free event on Sunday at Southwark Cathedral with readings from an anthology on the treatment of insanity in modern literature.
The Art Spectrum London meeting at the ICA on Fri Oct 8th could prove interesting and with luck might provoke some discussion about the general crap that gets served up today under the disguise of 'art'.
TV AND RADIO
'Robert Vas' controversial TV analy-sis of the 1943 Katyn Massacre. . The Issue Should Be Avoided' will be repeated on Wednesday at 9.20 on BBC1. The first showing (on BBC2 last April) was compelling television. Dennis Potter, Fay Weldon, and James Mitchell, three of TV's best playwrights, all have plays on TV this
week. Dennis Potter's 'Traitor' is a topical and brilliant account of a defector's idea of patriotism; the others initiate new TV series. London Weekend are showing Howard Hawks"Rio Bravo' on Saturday night and 'Cat On A Hot Tin Roof' on Sunday, night.
In the West End, Osborne's 'West of Suez' closes at the Cambridge and Adrian Mitchell's `Tyger' re-opens at the New. Last chance to catch 'The National Interest', a political review on the modern scene which is playing late night at the Little Theatre Club after daytime pefformances down at the Brighton conference. Finishes on Sunday. Two openings that should prove interest-ing. '1789' at the Roundhouse — see next week's feature; a revival of Heathcote Williams' AC/DC at the Theatre Upstairs, but read what the author has to say on this week's middle pages.
Apart from the Velvet Underground, whose dates follow the feature on them, and who are certainly worth a visit whatever unlikely combination of people has found its way across here, you might try Yes at the Festival Hall on Friday which is the same night Sandy Denny is at NE Poly; either of the Calmed Heat concerts; the McCarthy family/Jan and Jake benefit at N.Poly on Saturday; either of the benefits on Sunday; the Everly Brothers at the Albert Hall on Tuesday and Centipede at the same place on Thursday.i)orit it jest Leaveyou breathless? Worth remembering on the jazz scene is that most of the colleges running clubs are now back in business (or as near to business as a jazz club, which very rarely sees actual money, can get) Bedford College puts on Nucleus on Saturday, Goldsmith's has Brotherhood of Breath on Tuesday, and the Northern Polytechnic presents Ray Russell (who is about to release an album on RCA) on Wednesday. The electronic music group Intermodulation puts on a rare concert at the ICA on Thursday.
With Bunuel's `Tristan' (Academy), Bergman's 'The Touch' (Prince Charles) and Nick Roeg's 'Walkabout' (Rialto) the West End begins to look a bit more interesting. Just time too to catch the last few days of the Chinese Films at the Baker Street Classic (to Sunday). 'Scorpio Rising' '(Kenneth Anger) and 'Flesh' (Warhol) in a double bill at the Times gives one a chance to catch two underground classics made good. Local cinemas offer a blanket bleakness circuit-wise but relief is at hand in odd spots like Hampstead with Brook's `Marat Sade', his 'Lear' at E. Finchley, Antonioni's Notte at Kentish Town. Late films offer Godard's superb 'Pierrot Le Fou' (Roundhouse); 'Memories of Underdevelopment' (Kentish Town), two showing of Kurosawa's finest samouri drama 'Sanjuro' gets two airings (Thur at Paris Pullman; Sat at Islington). If you still haven't seen Shaffner's 'The War Lord' with Charlton Heston, don't miss it late at Notting Hill until Sat. Clubwise there's a chance to see Godard's 'Contempt' (Twickenham) and 'King Kong' from those over-looked masters of American Ex, pressionism Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Scheodsack (NFT from 11 pm). Eisenstein's 'Ivan The
Terrible' Parts 1 and 2 show at the Electric Cinema Club. The NFT has a series devoted to the Hammer Horror pix with a world premiere of their latest saga 'Blood From The Mummy's Tomb'. Try RCA films by their students on Wed to get a glimpse of what the film schools are doing and remember that these people ought to be the very best.
