The Clot Thickens!



Pleased to announce that I have a new book of one-line poems called The Clot Thickens available from the wonderful Puddles Of Sky Press! Puddles Of Sky is known for unique, inventive, and fun formatting and The Clot Thickens is no exception with its super-long/slim design! The book made its debut at Toronto's Meet The Presses Indie Literary Market a couple of days ago and copies should be available at The Ottawa Small Press Book Fair on Nov. 24th.

Having only appeared a few days ago, the book is new enough that it's not on the Puddles Of Sky website yet, but feel free to get in touch with them and ask about it.

Static Fanatic compilation



My analog synth noise drone project Panic Engines kicks of this great three volume various artist comp called "A Decade Down" which was released late last month in celebration of the 10th anniversary of The Static Fanatic blog. Some fantastic material here and well worth a listen! And don't forget to peruse the posts of the blog itself, it's one of my favorites!

R.I.P. Hardy Fox



This is a little difficult so I've put off doing it for a few days. Very sad to say that Hardy Fox (Cryptic Corporation and The Residents) has passed away. I can't even begin to describe how much joy the music of The Residents has given me since I first came across it in the early 80s, and just how much of a tremendous influence the group has had on my own work in music and art. It is a great loss!
