Tastes of Ink gets a good reviewing from Brighton Lite.

Book Club

• Tuesday 21st Jun 2011
On the 27th June Karen Georghiou will begin her 'Book Club' - a regular feature in which she will interview various Lazy Gramophone writers about their published works.

The idea behind Book Club is to reveal authors' perspectives on their own publications and so questions will progress according to the chapters of each featured book.

Karen will also be offering you the chance to pitch your own questions via her Twitter page.

Once the interviews have been recorded the resulting videos will be published on our Lazy Gramophone website as well as on Karen's YouTube channel: RAGtelevision.

The first episode of Book Club will see Karen meet Will Conway in order to talk about his new book, Tastes of Ink. If you have a question for Will, simply tweet @minikaren and sign off with the hashtag 'Conway'

New Edition of Rooms Mag

• Monday 20th Jun 2011

The latest issue of Rooms Magazine is now on sale!

Opening this summer issue with a defiant cover from photographer Francesca Yorke, Rooms Magazine walks you straight into The Red Room, cranking up the heat with Andy Scott's steel work and the illustrations of a man that needs no introduction, Jeremyville [both interviewed by our very own Will Conway].

If that's not hot enough for you, why not climb inside one of Nick Cave's Soundsuits. Or you could always pay a visit to The Bee Kingdom, their glass-blowing studio is a constant hive of activity. Also in the Rooms Letterbox, Sergio Caballero talks other artistic endeavours besides nursing his brainchild SONAR festival, while BMX's favourite photographer Vincent Perraud adds a personal touch with his top ten tunes.

I bet that was too hot now, right?! So take a break and ask for an iced coffee -mine's a mojito!- when you get to the Gallery District, get comfortable, and enjoy the always diverse array of great artists Rooms have got for you in Showrooms.

The exciting news doesn't stop there. Rooms distribution frontiers keep expanding! Friends in Canada and the US will soon be able to grab a copy at their nearest bookshop and specialist retailer. Make sure you get yours!
Happy Holidays!

Sabotage: Reviews of the Ephemeral, have reviewed our latest publication, 'Tastes of Ink', by Will Conway. Follow this news link to read the review in full. 

Review written by Will Langdale

About Sabotage:

'Sabotage likes pamphlets, small presses, poetry and fiction magazines, manifestos, online journals, stapled pieces of paper, installation poetry, ... In other words, those ephemeral works that are often created on a small budget and distributed to a limited amount of people.

Shaded by their stockier cousins these works don't always get the thoughtful criticism, heated debates, or trolls that they deserve. Let's face it, Sabotage isn't going to solve that problem, but it would like to provide a troposphere.'
