Sisyphean by Dempow Torishima (translated by Daniel Huddleston)

                Trying to review Sisyphean is an annoyance for me, because no matter how I describe it it will be like nothing you have ever read. In 2011, Dempow Torishima published his short story Sisyphean, a horrifying vision of a future where bioengineering has transformed humanity into bizarre, monstrous forms.

To celebrate Tristessa’s legacy, her husband Nicolas Maiis has just announced the second Astarte Fest in Athens, featuring the

Turbonegro @ KOKO (02/03/2018)

                        For a band that seems to be taking nothing seriously, there is a lot to unpack about Turbonegro. The endless tours. The superstar status in the Scandinavian countries. That name (conceived to insult Norwegian Neo Nazis) The famous friends and supporters (Jello Biafra,

The Ritual

The Ritual (just landed on Netflix in most places) is an effective little horror. Based on the book by Adam Nevill and directed by David Bruckner (The Signal, the V/H/S segment Amateur Night), the film mostly follows a formula but it does so with craft and atmosphere. See if you’ve heard this one before: After

R.I.P. Tzimis Panousis

And it’s goodbye to Tzimis Panousis. One of the most important figures in the history of Greek rock, he was a trickster who managed to piss off almost everyone at some point over the last 40 years. His is a complicated legacy and it would be naive to lionise him uncritically. He was often very

Paperbacks from Hell by Grady Hendrix

Sometimes a book comes around that matches your sensibilities to such an extent that it might as well have been written just for you. Paperbacks from Hell is such a book. Starting with the gothic novel explosion in the late 60s and ending with the serial killer best seller craze in the wake of Thomas Harris’ Manhunter, Paperbacks

All- Monster Action! by Cody Goodfellow

Cody Goodfellow’s cheerfully unhinged 2012 short story collection has just been re- released by King Shot Press and now is your chance to get in on the action. Goodfellow- never the most grounded of writers to begin with- throws an insane number of ideas at the reader and the results are both exhilarating and exhausting. And while the title,

Out of Exile @ Red Room Studios

On a mission to support my local scene (uncharacteristically, for me), I went to see Out of Exile on a cold West London Wednesday evening. The band has been around for a while rehearsing in Acton and tonight was their showcase. Out of Exile are an unapologetic throwback to the hard rock 80s and the songs fall on the spectrum from AOR
