MacGillivray is a Scottish writer and artist. As a musician she has supported The Fall, Arthur Brown and Arlo Guthrie, performed internationally as well as being featured on BBC Radio 3 Late Junction and The Verb. Her third album Horse Sweat Chandelier is released October 2013. MacGillivray’s poetry has been published in ASLS New Scottish Writing and Magma; her art criticism in Performance Research and several editions of Art Monthly. She has performed alongside writers such as Alan Moore, Don Paterson, Brian Catling and Iain Sinclair. Her first collection, Last Wolf of Scotland will be published in October 2013 and treads a fine line between surreal reality and imaginative abstraction, in order to trace the violence through which national mythologies are forged and perpetuated, from the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands to the piratical showmanship of the wild west. http://www.kirstennorrie.com/

Notes For Fatty Cakes by Andrew Spragg

anythinganymoreanywhere.co.uk is pleased to announce the publication of
Notes For Fatty Cakes by Andrew Spragg.

The follow-up to Andrew Spragg’s sell-out debut The Fleetingest (Red Ceilings Press, 2011), Notes For Fatty Cakes is uproarious and mannered, with tenderness by the shimmering and deliciously shifty bucketload.

‘Andrew Spragg’s Notes for Fatty Cakes flickers through the landscape of demotic, rounding up the tribes of lenses language uses from plank to Planck: a mini-epic journey in the running heads below which letters, reportage and refrain record as I eyes an other.”Dost thou think, because thou art virtuous, there shall be no more cakes and ale?” Genre-kebabs on a skewer of wit.’ —Tom Raworth

FC is going to be rubbed into your carefully composed faces, into your delicately frozen critical measurements {…} The punctuation, which has been so diligently learnt in defence of the contemporary, is spilt and walked over with chant and serious weirdness{…}The shrill swazzle of Mr Punch is wired sideways through the PA or intimately whispered over and over again.’
Brian Catling

‘Ranging from ocean to dry-land pub, prairie to outer space, this book’s good-humoured restlessness provokes us to think about relations between self and other. Andrew Spragg is a poet who can love; this book is in love with language without losing a grip on the world.’ Vahni Capildeo Matt Cockshutt http://yellotone.com/mattdefence.htm Julie Groves http://www.juliegroves.com/ Andy Spragg www.brokenloop.blogspot.com Anything Anymore Anywhere http://www.anythinganymoreanywhere.co.uk/
