Ian Heavens, Spunk Co-founder
Ian Heavens: Revolutionary
Many remember how sincere, genuine and giving Ian was.
As well as bringing joy to those around him Ian had
a vision of a fairer world. He believed the anarchist
movement could bring about a better world. In 1993,
with his skills and access to the internet, he found
his opportunity to give anarchism a boost in cyber space.
Spunk was born. Along with others from around
the world, that he knew from an email list, he devoted
much time and energy to building the Spunk internet
archive. He also gave workshops about the then new internet
to other activists.
Many wanted to stifle the internet as a vibrant exchange
of ideas. Ian was a casually of the attack on the new-found
freedoms to promote revolution electronically. After
being smeared by the Sunday
Times Ian decided to keep a "low profile" as far
as openly revolutionary activity was concerned. Ian
played a central role in the Mutiny Collective, which
puts on fundraising gigs for the Autonomous Centre of
Edinburgh. He enthusiastically did the one hundred and
one things needed to ensure a successful gig. Not to
mention often playing with Bloco
Vomit at an ACE gig!
Not only were the Mutiny gigs crucial for raising money,
they were vital and exciting events in their own right.
Always concerned to break down musical and cultural
barriers, Ian helped organise gigs which brought together
punks and poets, music from the eclectically experimental
to traditional folk, information stalls and wild pogoing.....
at ACE and Spunk we will always remember him.
