I have the old edition. It is quite unusual, as it attempts to cover all sorts of skinhead things. Therefore it may be ”too much” for almost everybody. Some will be freaked out by extensive bonehead presence. Ton of nazi skin stuff there, but if you didn’t have problem with THAT, then you might have when gay skins take over and you got that stuff, explicitly presented... ! Haha!
Unusually good skinhead book. Not sure how much new edition is revised?

Jukka Siikala - Spanielit

Siikala is an amazing painter and this was his first published novel. I got it with my latest haul from Sarvilevyt, and the extract in the back cover got me interested. It was about this main character fantasizing about death and murder while waiting in the grill line, and then picking up few girls to after party with him. The extract leaves open what the scenario leads up to, but it made me think about the case in Finland 2007 when a teenager picked up girls to an after party and killed them with a crossbow. I thought that maybe the book is about something similar to that case.

Basically the story follows the life of an anonymous male protagonist and captures the feeling of alienation and meaninglessness with occasional wallowing in self pity, jerking off and sex and violence fantasies towards the people he interacts with. Some familiar places can be spotted like the old movie theater in Helsinki and some insights are really easy to relate to. Depressing short book (68 pages) and recommendable for Finns! (as it's only in Finnish).

+ Also reading the graphic novel Scalped. Violent crime drama set in Indian reservation. Artwork and colors are great! The first two trades were promising but the jumping back and forth in timeline was annoying. Hopefully it's not like this all the way through...

Jukka Siikala - Spanielit


To my amazement it’s not available in the Helsinki library system. Looks like I’ll have to buy this too.

It's a shame it is only in Finnish.  It sounds interesting.

Red Country by Joe Abercrombie - I loved this book. The First Law trilogy was great, the subsequent books were really fun but Best Served Cold dragged on just a touch, but this one was just great. Totally excellent from start to finish. Can best be described as a deranged western set in a Conan/GoT type universe. Probably the best one I’ve read in the series.

Bad Monkeys by Matt Ruff - Very Philip K Dick-ish, a fast and fun read, I REALLY liked this one.

Blue Light of the Screen by Claire Cronin - I have never read anything quite like this. Billed as a “creative-critical memoir” it’s a hallucinatory journey, I don’t know if I love it, but I definitely enjoyed it. Would definitely read more from her in the future.

Aimé Césaire's Solar Throat Slashed The Unexpurgated 1948 Edition and perusing the recently published The Complete Poetry of Aimé Cesairé. He was like a cousin to Artaud, a little after him, but coming from a Carribean and African tradition. These works are an immediate grasp on your nerves, they hold weight and force, hotness, leaving a fierce harsh taste. You will not find an immediate violence or explicitness like de Sade or Bataille, but a deeper violence. This is like the African Bruegel the Elder, hot and fierce cosmic violence, dream and soul violence, boiling blood violence. These newer translations are of great importance, since Césaire became a politician later in life he edited some of the blasphemy and ferocity out of his works and cut some of the poems from Solar Throat Slashed. Anyway, whatever you feel about his politics these works are inspiring and exciting stuff. If you like Artaud's poetry this is definitely up your alley.

I read The Tower of Swallows (The Witcher #4) and I have enjoyed these Witcher books in the past but this one was a bit of a slog. I think I need to take a year between this one and the last in the series.

Currently reading Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel - my wife absolutely loved it and convinced me to read it (a pandemic book during the pandemic? Get the fuck outta here....) and it’s GREAT. I’m really enjoying it. She’s a fantastic writer. I’ll probably read her next one this summer.

I have Free Jazz in Japan and Annihilating Noise lined up after for some exciting fun after.

Manhunter: The Story Of The Swedish Occultist And Serial Killer Thurneman. I bought this on a whim from Anja Offensive and so far, I'm pleasantly surprised.  True crime/serial killer nonfiction hasn't been of much interest to me for a while now but the story of this maniac is very compelling to me. The setting of pre-WWII Sweden as well as the occult angle comes together quite well to keep me engaged.

Wrapped up The Two Antichrists by Peter Grey. I'd have to say he's the best current, active occult writer. This book looks at the relation of Parsons and L Ron Hubbard from a new angle than previously explored (namely that they both proclaimed themselves antichrist after engaging with Crowley) and includes some unpublished pieces by parsons. I appreciate Grey being willing to explore the esoteric roots of dianetics/scientology deeper than anyone I've seen prior, and I like how he characterizes antichrist as more of a subset of ideas and goals than an actual singular being (to be AN antichrist versus to be THE antichrist).

Currently reading the Zazen Sounds occult writing compilation Ajna put out...mostly good. Layout is great, though I get pretty fatigued by the 5th essay talking about the kali yuga and breakdown of traditional europe culture.

I received the latest New Juche, "The Worm", the other day and am very excited to dive in. Just paging through it it looks like a culmination of his prior ideas, not to mention it's just a massive tome. Shipping was absurd but when you handle it it makes sense. Some beautiful photo work in there.

George Orwell - Down and Out in Paris and London.

Quite different from 1984 and Animal Farm. Not just in the narrative but in the language as well. I enjoy it. Needed this easier read after reading Empire of the Senseless (Acker).

Substance by Peter Hook, extremely funny memoir of 80s rock and roll excess lived by a bunch of morons from working class Manchester. New Order to be exact. They lost millions and millions of pounds due to being, well, idiots who didn't know anything about anything except playing in a band and using all of the drugs they could get their hands on.

Prisoner Of Love - Jean Genet

"Starting in 1970, Jean Genet—petty thief, prostitute, modernist master—spent two years in the Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. Always an outcast himself, Genet was drawn to this displaced people, an attraction that was to prove as complicated for him as it was enduring. Prisoner of Love, written some ten years later, when many of the men Genet had known had been killed, and he himself was dying, is a beautifully observed description of that time and those men as well as a reaffirmation of the author's commitment not only to the Palestinian revolution but to rebellion itself."



82189: Confessions of a Prison Bitch


"We are left with what might be described as an outsider memoir, or simply a document. Unrefined and unfinished, 82189 was written by a man – posthumously assigned the pen-name “Henry Bellows” – who died while serving a life sentence for rape, and who spent most his life in penal confinement. Whatever literary aspiration may have motivated Bellows’ late-life confessional writing, his text now invites interest for such insight that it may offer (or conceal) regarding the formative experiences and criminal exploits of a repeat sex offender who was also rape victim. In telling his story, Bellows embeds a coldly observed account of carceral culture and the grim reality of sexual violence and abjection behind prison walls."
