Hedgespoken


• Wednesday 19th Nov 2014
Hedgespoken is a travelling off-grid theatre project based in Devon, UK. 

Help the brilliant Tom Hirons and Rima Staines turn a beautiful old Bedford RL truck into a spectacular venue for starlit storytellings, vagabond puppet circus and far more. 

Full details can be found on their Hedgespoken crowdfunder page. But don't hang around, they only have 12 days of fundraising left!

If you are as excited about this project as we are, then please do pass on their film  link to anyone who you think would appreciate it.: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hedgespoken 

Rima and Tom need to raise an estimated £25,000 in total to make this vision become a reality, and they cannot do it alone. This is where you get to play a part in their unfolding story by pledging what you can to make this dream happen, and by sharing this campaign far and wide! It is very exciting to think about the possibilities of a project like this being funded by the people to whom it will mean the most - the true grass-roots pledgers! 

This dream is being made out of lots of small donations from lots of people who believe in this magic as much as we do!

In fact, the wondrous Amelias Mag have even featured an interview with Tom and Rima. Follow this interview link to hear them speak about the inspirations and influences behind their project.

London's Litro Magazine Reviews Time:
'An ambitious collection of short fiction, poetry and art, Lazy Gramophone's Time dresses up genre-bending experimentalism in cinemascope, projecting it backwards and upside-down.'

If you choose to stay with us all day then you will be treated to a number of Performances By the Book's Contributors (see timings below); though should you find yourself otherwise engaged, do feel free to drop by at any point during the day - even if only to have say hi, catch a performance and share a quick drink.

About the Time Project.

Time is a vast collaborative book project containing short stories, poems and artwork by fifty-five contributors. Since the project's inception, the idea has been to create an environment where independent writers and artists could come together in order to share their work. The result of this endeavour is a collection of stories, images and poems based around the theme of time, its pages placing particular focus upon the relationship between words and pictures. By sharing in this way we hope to inspire each other as well as those around us, to draw a diverse audience and so help to illuminate the work of alternative artists and writers everywhere.

Post Apocalypse


• Tuesday 25th Oct 2011
A journey into the post apocalypse of an alternate area...an anachronistic projection to a post human destruction. What would happen if the human world suddenly ended in the 30′s? How would the world look now, would anything survive? Post Apocalypse is an exploration of that question. Humans are gone, destroyed by nuclear or biological hubris. The world that's left is smoky and ruinous. This is an alternate future containing creatures evolving into a stylised world suddenly found empty. A story of survival, hyper evolution, mutation, glorious gas masks and deco punk themes. 
KAITLIN BECKETT...Mechanical walkers driven by masked creatures walk under a glowing sky, jars are lined up to collect precious liquids and overlapping armour plates wrap around smoking viscera. The poisonous air has necessitated quick adaptations.
ARAMAS...In a world suddenly devoid of human, animals have undergone a hyper evolution. Forced to adapt to a ruined world. The results are animals new to consciousness, struggling to make sense of this strange world, the history that created it, and the future they now have to deal with. There's new religion, old animosities, and a very human sense of curiosity and confusion. I see the bears of this world as the alternative to humans. Inheriting a past that they're trying to understand, with some very strange results. 
Rancho Notorious       25th October to the 7th of November
Opening night on Thursday the 27th of October, 6-9pm

VESSEL: Exhibition


• Sunday 9th Oct 2011
CURATED BY CARL SLATER & GLEN JOHNSTON Sited within a disused industrial space in Stonehouse, Plymouth, Vessel is a gathering of contemporary artworks showcasing the work of seventeen international artists that focuses on the particulars of their postindustrial location in its physical, socio-cultural and economic contexts. Placed between the logic of the building's architecture and the city's rich history, this is an exhibition that investigates site-specificity and the means to artistic intervention. Acting as footnotes against the backdrop of Plymouth, Vessel reveals itself as a temporal structure in a display in memory of the site and a reflective commentary of the area's historical value and contemporary redevelopment.  Housing works of installation, film, performance, photography and sculpture, it is not the architecture that forms the focus, but the ambiguous authority of the works within it. The understanding of the temporal and dynamic character of Stonehouse's landscape and the expectations of the site itself is paramount to the reception of these works. The commissioning of this derelict space is where the vessel is the ship, the carrier and a container of function and delivery. The show goes on until October 30th 2011

New Edition of Rooms Mag


• Monday 20th Jun 2011

The latest issue of Rooms Magazine is now on sale!

Opening this summer issue with a defiant cover from photographer Francesca Yorke, Rooms Magazine walks you straight into The Red Room, cranking up the heat with Andy Scott's steel work and the illustrations of a man that needs no introduction, Jeremyville [both interviewed by our very own Will Conway].

If that's not hot enough for you, why not climb inside one of Nick Cave's Soundsuits. Or you could always pay a visit to The Bee Kingdom, their glass-blowing studio is a constant hive of activity. Also in the Rooms Letterbox, Sergio Caballero talks other artistic endeavours besides nursing his brainchild SONAR festival, while BMX's favourite photographer Vincent Perraud adds a personal touch with his top ten tunes.

I bet that was too hot now, right?! So take a break and ask for an iced coffee -mine's a mojito!- when you get to the Gallery District, get comfortable, and enjoy the always diverse array of great artists Rooms have got for you in Showrooms.

The exciting news doesn't stop there. Rooms distribution frontiers keep expanding! Friends in Canada and the US will soon be able to grab a copy at their nearest bookshop and specialist retailer. Make sure you get yours!
 
Happy Holidays!

Sabotage: Reviews of the Ephemeral, have reviewed our latest publication, 'Tastes of Ink', by Will Conway. Follow this news link to read the review in full. 

Review written by Will Langdale


About Sabotage:

'Sabotage likes pamphlets, small presses, poetry and fiction magazines, manifestos, online journals, stapled pieces of paper, installation poetry, ... In other words, those ephemeral works that are often created on a small budget and distributed to a limited amount of people.

Shaded by their stockier cousins these works don't always get the thoughtful criticism, heated debates, or trolls that they deserve. Let's face it, Sabotage isn't going to solve that problem, but it would like to provide a troposphere.'

REM Magazine reviews Lazy Gramophone


• Monday 13th Dec 2010
REM Magazine, an international, experimental literary journal that embraces new ideas and new forms as the foundations of innovative art and writing, have written a feature about Lazy Gramophone.

To read the piece in full follow this news link.

About REM Magazine

'Think radiation. Think danger. Think radical diffusion of ideas. Forget pastoral poetry and publishable grotesque and 'pretty' prose, Rem Magazine is the ground zero for creative works that disobey, deconstruct and play.

Of course, anyone can load a website these days and call it the hub of experimental creation. Certainly, there is an ongoing struggle of what it really means to be dangerous, provocative and cutting edge. These are three words that have lost meaning over recent years as zines have enthusiastically grabbed such notions to up their commerical viability. For us, experimental is a condition or a process. Authentic, experimental ideas are those which steer us off-course, provoke new debate or have the potential to change literary and artistic values. Rem Magazine is founded upon concepts of subversion and dissection as writers search for code and meaning (or even create it) as we draw a line between defiance and commercial literature. Here at Rem, we aim to showcase such local talent in order place New Zealand's underground among international artists on the world stage. By doing so, we hope to diminish the collective nervousness, the collective embarrassment that plagues us, transforming us from a nation of individuals to a world of heros.

Duck and cover, kiddos, the rem-bomb is about to go off.

Sabotage Reviews L.G.com


• Wednesday 8th Dec 2010
Sabotage Blog has reviewed our website.

Follow this news link to read the review in full.



About Sabotage:
'Sabotage likes pamphlets, small presses, poetry and fiction magazines, manifestos, online journals, stapled pieces of paper, installation poetry, ... In other words, those ephemeral works that are often created on a small budget and distributed to a limited amount of people.

Shaded by their stockier cousins these works don't always get the thoughtful criticism, heated debates, or trolls that they deserve. Let's face it, Sabotage isn't going to solve that problem, but it would like to provide a troposphere.'

Guest Writer Published in our Journals Section


• Thursday 24th Jun 2010
We are happy to announce that we have recently published the first submission from a guest writer in our Lazy Gramophone Journals section. The piece is called The 'Other' London and has been written by the brilliant Kane X Faucher:

BIO

"Kane X. Faucher is a puzzling, ubiquitous author of 10 or so books and a multitude of articles, poems, essays, reviews, short fiction, and miscellanea that nomadically traverse with ease from high falutin irrealism, impregnable polemical fiction, post-VisPo, vulgar gonzo, complex theory, journalistic reportage, contemporary art catalogue essays, political tracts, and crotchety Pound-style criticism. A chameleon of a scribe, an incorrigible maverick, and perhaps even a Wildean dilettante, he was won a smattering of modest awards in both literature and academia. He remains staunchly secure in the obscure, and has demonstrated a preternatural knack for authorial mimicry. He has been called many things, not all of them nice. He has been compared to a wide range of authors, but these comparisons are far too slippery.

He is happily married and terribly secretive, throwing up occasional gusts of public smoke by way of some publication or an interview tucked in an obscure place.
"

If you would also like to submit a piece of writing for publication in our journals section, send all submissions to info@lazygramophone.com. We are open to all topics and styles, though the piece must be accompanied by an original image.

On Sunday 13th June 2010, Lazy Gramophone held an intimate Lazy Sunday event at The Old Queen's Head in Islington, London. Unbeknown to us, amongst the crowd sat the author of the blog, 'Ramblings of a Girl Who Just Wants to Write'. This is her blog post in which she talks of the event.
