Carl Watson’s brilliant new novel, Idylls of Complicity, the second volume in a trilogy, has a lot to say about role playing. People play them: “Kathe was a neo-Marxist working in advertising – direct mail, actually, but she pretended it was mid-level retail and that it was a ‘creative’ position.” And people try to escape them. “That’s what drives the tourist industry … to get away from that kind of second-order experience, to get back to a one-on-one relationship where everything is new and now.” Being a tourist, it’s suggested, one would shed one’s role like a discarded snake skin.

this will be my last scream
if I ever fly away”

An “in-your-face” R-rated avant-garde audio response to the increasingly fictive, overly-commodified, G-rated Disneyfication of contemporary fiction, poetry, music and spoken word. Old and new connect where Temporary Autonomous Zones cross and individual creativity bursts through. Wickedly naughty, angry, boisterous, tempestuous.

A celebration of vibrantly transgressive independent musicians, poets, and writers.
