Waves on a Boring Beach by Emma Hammond, poems written in Walthamstow Mall, out now on zimZalla.
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

a new book of poems by Tom Betteridge
published by Sine Wave Peak
“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
hand-sewn paperback with French folds and a foil-embossed cover, edition of 250
