“You know when you’re ugly… You don’t always know you’re stupid.”
Described by BBC Radio 3 as “cheerfully unsettling” Alabaster Deplume (Angus Fairbairn) is a performer, writer and musician based in Manchester and London. He tours internationally bringing theatrical spoken-word to music audiences, and vice-versa.
His most recent multi-disciplinary concert/recording project, The Jester, involved 12 musicians and 24 visual artists from two cities, funded internationally by crowd-sourcing.
He writes and performs theatre with Dublin circus aerial troupe PaperDolls and appears as saxophonist for singer Liz Green (PIAS International) and Debt’s own Honeyfeet among others.
His work has been described as both “uneasy listening” and “harrowingly funny”.
Alabaster dePlume is now signed to Lost Map Records.
