Guest Writer Published in our Journals Section

• Thursday 24th Jun 2010

We are happy to announce that we have recently published the first submission from a guest writer in our Lazy Gramophone Journals section. The piece is called The 'Other' London and has been written by the brilliant Kane X Faucher:


"Kane X. Faucher is a puzzling, ubiquitous author of 10 or so books and a multitude of articles, poems, essays, reviews, short fiction, and miscellanea that nomadically traverse with ease from high falutin irrealism, impregnable polemical fiction, post-VisPo, vulgar gonzo, complex theory, journalistic reportage, contemporary art catalogue essays, political tracts, and crotchety Pound-style criticism. A chameleon of a scribe, an incorrigible maverick, and perhaps even a Wildean dilettante, he was won a smattering of modest awards in both literature and academia. He remains staunchly secure in the obscure, and has demonstrated a preternatural knack for authorial mimicry. He has been called many things, not all of them nice. He has been compared to a wide range of authors, but these comparisons are far too slippery.

He is happily married and terribly secretive, throwing up occasional gusts of public smoke by way of some publication or an interview tucked in an obscure place.

If you would also like to submit a piece of writing for publication in our journals section, send all submissions to info@lazygramophone.com. We are open to all topics and styles, though the piece must be accompanied by an original image.

On Sunday 13th June 2010, Lazy Gramophone held an intimate Lazy Sunday event at The Old Queen's Head in Islington, London. Unbeknown to us, amongst the crowd sat the author of the blog, 'Ramblings of a Girl Who Just Wants to Write'. This is her blog post in which she talks of the event.
