Lorien Lamarr Photo Column - Great Wight

Great Wight (Brooklyn, NY) is a delightful clash of dichotomies, delivering a somber and poignant message set to the tune of catchy, upbeat pop punk/emo pop. This is the kind of band that makes you stop and pay attention.

ADRIFT, 5½” x 8½”, copied, full color cover, 16 pgs.

Earth is uninhabitable or else destroyed completely; it’s not totally clear in Adrift. A survivor, perhaps the only one, floats through space in a capsule and this collection of poetry is of her isolation. She reflects on her time on earth and her current state of loneliness and exile. Patti Jean Pangborn has the nuance and quiet dignity to bring you into the mind of this sequestered, reluctant astronaut. With a lesser writer this would come across as trite or forced, but Pangborn pulls it off to create an introspective and inward study of the human condition. –Craven Rock (spacecowboybooks.com)

ASYMMETRICAL ANTI-MEDIA, Issue 1, $1, stamps or trade, 5½” x 8½”, 6 pgs.

A short, photocopied zine review zine that focuses more on the esoteric and the fringe. Most of the zines that are reviewed seem to reflect the sentiment of its author, old school zinemaker Jason Rodgers, who has no love lost for the internet and the information age. It’s a great resource if you want to order some zines. –Craven Rock (Jason Rodgers, PO Box 10894, Albany, NY 12201)
