REM Magazine reviews Lazy Gramophone

• Monday 13th Dec 2010
REM Magazine, an international, experimental literary journal that embraces new ideas and new forms as the foundations of innovative art and writing, have written a feature about Lazy Gramophone.

About REM Magazine

'Think radiation. Think danger. Think radical diffusion of ideas. Forget pastoral poetry and publishable grotesque and 'pretty' prose, Rem Magazine is the ground zero for creative works that disobey, deconstruct and play.

Of course, anyone can load a website these days and call it the hub of experimental creation. Certainly, there is an ongoing struggle of what it really means to be dangerous, provocative and cutting edge. These are three words that have lost meaning over recent years as zines have enthusiastically grabbed such notions to up their commerical viability. For us, experimental is a condition or a process. Authentic, experimental ideas are those which steer us off-course, provoke new debate or have the potential to change literary and artistic values. Rem Magazine is founded upon concepts of subversion and dissection as writers search for code and meaning (or even create it) as we draw a line between defiance and commercial literature. Here at Rem, we aim to showcase such local talent in order place New Zealand's underground among international artists on the world stage. By doing so, we hope to diminish the collective nervousness, the collective embarrassment that plagues us, transforming us from a nation of individuals to a world of heros.

Duck and cover, kiddos, the rem-bomb is about to go off.

Sabotage Reviews

• Wednesday 8th Dec 2010
Sabotage Blog has reviewed our website.

Follow this news link to read the review in full.

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.'
