World War Three ended last Thursday. In case you missed it we thought we’d give you a re -cap. We’ve brought the darkly prophetic writings of novelist JG Ballard into the 21st century through spoken word and electronic music mayhem. Listen through head phones in the most comfy chair we could find with our budget as a battle involving humans, computers, cars and Tony Abbott’s testicles unfolds inside the mind of one very disturbed doctor.
