Wishful Thinking 
The late Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson was not only a founder member of Throbbing Gristle and Coil, a designer at Hipgnosis, and a videomaker for Greenback Films but he also designed two sleeves for A Certain Ratio during their early Factory period.

In summer 2010, the AV Festival commissioned him to compose a work for the 2012 spring Equinox, to be staged at Durham Cathedral. Sadly Christopherson died in November 2010 before he could complete the work.

Wishful Thinking is a music, film and performance event in celebratory remembrance of his life and work. It includes the premiere of three performance sketches with Christopherson‘s original collaborators for the commission: visual artist Alex Rose, sound recordist Chris Watson (ex-Cabaret Voltaire) and vocalist Attila Csihar plus TG's Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti premiering new live remixes.

Wishful Thinking: In Remembrance Of Peter Christopherson (1955–2010) is at the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle on 17 March 2012. Tickets priced £20 Stalls / £22.50 Circle are on sale now.
