Alec Newman reading at the recent The Other Room December 2012
Even though the Other Room frequently features three performers from the more experimental end of the poetry spectrum,
its rare that you can find more than cursory connections between them. On the surface, Alec Newman, Nat Raha and Seekers of Lice (actually a solo artist, called, I think, Anne), hadn’t much in common either but coincidentally all read sequences, and had some element of the improvisational in work that was otherwise very structured.
Alec Newman will perform at The Other Room on Wednesday 5th December, at the Castle Hotel, Oldham Street, Manchester. 7 PM start. Free entry. The other performers are Seekers of Lice, of whom you can read a preview here, and Nat Raha, who will be previewed next week.
Alec Newman runs The Knives forks and Spoons Press, which the British Library nominated for the Michael Marks Publisher of the Year Award in 2011. He is fascinated by linguistics and the relation of phonology to metrical theory.

Peter Hughes writes about the Knives, Forks and Spoons Press in general and imminent Other Room reader SJ Fowler’s The Red Museum in particular at the Poetry Book Society Poetry Portal:
“Earlier this year, Alec Newman’s Knives, Forks and Spoons Press was shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award for outstanding UK publisher of poetry in pamphlet form. It is easy to understand why. KF&S has been putting out an amazing range of innovative poetry at an extraordinary rate. There is a buzz and an urgency about the whole project which has made it a particularly welcome addition to the British poetry scene.”
Nominees for the best pamphlet prizes include Other Room reader Neil Addison’s Apocapulco and Other Room reader Sophie Robinson’s The Lotion. Alec Newman’s The Knives Forks and Spoons Press and Richard Parker’s Crater Press are noimnated for best publisher. Read more here.
