Found this on an old memory card. I walked past someone’s house in Nashville with my audio recorder and documented this rock out, years ago.
I’m heading to the US on Saturday. Bringing with me some copies of this guy. If you live in the US and want one, you can pre-order one today or tomorrow and I’ll address it to you on the typewriter.

Made this for my friend Bucky Miller. It’s on it’s way to AZ.
I could not see him at all,
all I seen
was corner of his bed,
corner of his box spring,
and corner of his bed frame,
and the cord going from his tv
to his cable wire,
that was all I seen.
I asked my father in law to go grab me a shovel
and I jumped in the hole and just started digging for him,
and digging for him.
And then the cop,
a cop came and snatched me out of the hole,
cause they said it was unstable;
the ground was still falling,
the concrete was still falling,
and I think that cop saved my life
no one’s doing nothing to save my brother’s life.
How deep was the hole when you were in it?
It was over my head,
it was about up to my chin.
All I want for Christmas
I had such a blast in Paris last week. Sincerest of thanks to everyone who stopped by and also those who gave new homes to ETP books. I picked up a lot of old paperbacks and am so happy to finish the first copy of a project that’s been on my mind for a long time. For one of my oldest friends, W.H. (we’ve known each other almost 20 years now…) a tribute to French culture and philosophy inspired by Jean Luc-Nancy and Robert Bresson.
Happy to announce that Easter Trouble Press will be at Offprint Paris 2013, November 14-17. I will also be manning the Little Brown Mushroom table, selling copies of their new books Ping Pong and Iris Garden. As always, I will have several new publications, including single edition books and multiples. Stay tuned for more info.
