Type of Research: Performance
Creators: Newman, Hayley and Birch, Gina and Matthews, Kaffe

The Gluts - Gina Birch, Kaffe Matthews and Hayley Newman - are an environmentally crusading girl band. They formed in 2009 to write ‘Café Carbon’, 16 songs about food, capitalism and climate change.

The Gluts took their DIY eco-electro/absurdo-feminist musical ‘Café Carbon’ to the streets and bars of Copenhagen for the COP 15 Climate Summit in 2009, where they joined other concerned citizens urging governments around the world to act on climate change.

‘The Gluts Go To Copenhagen’ is a 36 minute record of the group’s dilettante trip to the summit on the specially commissioned Klimate Train, packed with 900 other activists. Includes remixes by Eqyptian DJ Mutamassik and Bruce Gilbert.
