After a great event in March at the Albion Beatnik bookstore in Oxford - one of the coolest places to hang out in Oxford and a top indie bookshop - the Year Zero crew return to Oxford for a gig at the OCADA gallery on 14th April (6-8 pm).

Musicians have yet to be announced, but I'm hoping to see Jessie Grace and possibly the Namibian...

Like music, film, and to some extent fine art, the book publishing industry has been dominated by the big corporations in recent years, who are risk averse and demand much bigger profit margins than the publishers of old. They are squeezing out original, edgy fiction in favour of bland, inoffensive pap. Authors have been slow to react, but they are beginning to follow the example...

I haven't changed a light bulb for over 5 years, because like most British people I've gone over to long-life flourescent ones. From the recent debate on this web site it's clear that, like many ecological measures, this is still far from the norm in the States, where many people still use power-hungry incandescent lights. It's really weird how far Americans...
