Gramophone Ray Gun – Tim Allen, Rachel Sills & Tim Bromage

Gramophone Ray Gun is a ‘live’ series of events celebrating experimental approaches to writing and performance, encouraging informal innovation, poetic deviance and risk. Alternating between the page, performance, language and text, Gramophone Ray Gun is a regular platform commissioned by The Dock Road Press. Invited readers for our fifth event include Tim Bromage, Rachel Sills and Tim Allen each punked up on strange magic and bizarre punk rituals. As usual, the evening will unfold to a crepuscular soundscape of unearthly samples and music excavated from a U.F.O crash site in Crosby.

Thursday, February 23 at 8 PM – 11 PM, Everyman Bistro, Liverpool

Pedicure by Tom Betteridge from Sine Wave Peak

P E D I C U R E

a new book of poems by Tom Betteridge
published by Sine Wave Peak
January 2017

Pedicure remains a pleasure, read at any speed or hovered over. Filtered through a fairy feller’s garden of delights, music layers merge as language zooms through thought to focus bracketed by timed description. Pages twitch body pollen mist to drift across purls in wine. All this under a Gulley Jimson foot: on record, grateful.”
– Tom Raworth
