Hot off the letter press

: valuable information directly to you about us and everything we have been doing. We aspire to fill this page with brilliance and wonder, though, on slow day, we may just end up reporting about the ducks on the ice. Whatever news we do print, one thing you can be sure of, is that we certainly will not be attempting to fill your heads with pointless opinionated political news casts.

Dan Prescott, Lazy Gramophone comrade and resident typesetter, will be exhibiting a selection of his artworks and illustrations throughout July and August at the Mill House cafe-restaurant on Windsor's Peascod Street, as part of the exhibition Fragments.

Dan has exhibited in and around London, most notably at the Macbeth Gallery in Hoxton, the Hospital Club in Covent Garden, Angel tube station and in the café at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, St James' Park. He was also part of the fund-raising, collaborative art initiative, Love in the Sky, in association with the ICA.

Fragments is the second bi-monthly exhibition organised and curated by the Two Magpies. After a debut show of painting and photography, the summer show is filled with mainly illustrative drawing and graphic work by young local artists.

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 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.
