Chuck Palahniuk Joins Band

The following is a direct crosspost from Aversion.com:

Chuck Palahnuik is taking a break from writing to try his hand at music.

Palahnuik, best known for penning Fight Club, will join Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting in a one-off performance that’s backed by a couple real musicians. Orbital’s Phil Hartnoll and Nick Smith will back the writers in a mostly improvisational performance at the Brighton Corn Exchange May 7.

According to Welsh's website, the band is to be named Longrange.

If this really takes place, it's going to be amazing and very disturbing. It's almost a guarantee that there will be a ton of references to intravenous drugs and violence in the musical content. Too bad I live nowhere near England, because that performance is going to be one of a kind. Stay tuned for more.
