Martin Bladh returns to AS with Braquemard: The Clavicle of Gilles de Rais, a deranged grimoire etched in blood.
Exquisitely designed by Karolina Urbainiak, with illustrations executed in the author's blood, Braquemard is printed in full colour throughout and concerns the murderous exploits of the child-killing French nobleman Gilles de Rais.
Not for the faint of heart, Bladh's latest work is an unforgettable journey to the dark heart of depravity.
I have roots in that French soil which is fed by the powdered bones of the children and youths buggered, massacred and burned by Gilles de Rais.— Jean Genet, The Thief’s Journal
Isabelle Nicou returns with her fiercely imaginative new novel Stricture.
A dizzying, kaleidoscopic work of filial obligation, literary mentorship and childhood dreams of alien abduction.
"In Harry’s suburban house, cluttered with books and stacks of papers, time was bending in an elliptical orb that never failed to constrain me during the few months broken by vacations and interruptions—several, for Harry was often invited abroad—where I went once a week to, as my famous mentor put it, “assist” him.
"Around 9:30 in the morning, after he had come—often still in pajamas over which he put on a putty-colored raincoat—to look for me at the train station in his white Fiat Panda, after we had a cup of coffee in the kitchen and greeted his wife who was leaving for her job in Paris, in the fifth arrondissement, just a few streets over from my studio, I had to climb the stairs and get started."
Suffused with eroticism and troubling despair, Stricture is the work of a major talent at the very height of her considerable powers.
Paperback, 168 pages.

NUMB is the sixth album to be released by Lewis Taylor, coming out on 26 August 2022 on his own label Slow Reality (an anagram of his name).
The 10 brand new tracks were written and recorded after a long break from making music, 17 years to be exact.
The years away have done nothing to dull Taylor's unique musical vision although the lyrical themes have changed. Fifteen years of soul searching and unflinching self-examination cannot fail to influence this song writer, and it shows.
The album was written and recorded over a two-year period and marks a return to the darker more atmospheric and mysterious side of his output.

When punk rock erupted in Washington DC, it was a mighty convergence of powerful music, friendships, and clear minds.
This film is the first to explore the incredible challenges that this subculture faced when it took root in the Nation's Capital in the late 1970's.
Punk the Capital situates DC punk within the larger narratives of rock n' roll, working as a powerful multi-layered story for both fans and non-fans of punk rock.
Featuring musicians such as Bad Brains, Henry Rollins, and Ian MacKaye, this film dives deep into the ideas and sounds from this transformative music scene which continues to influence culturally and politically around the world.
