Strange and Ghostly
*I* didn't even put him up to that description, either...
"Please join us for a strange and ghostly Anti-Reading
at this sweet gallery in Somerville. See below.
> Maudite Productions hosts Loudmouth Collective and
Ugly Duckling Presse
> June 5, 2004: Anti-Reading
> GALLERY 108
108 Beacon Street, Somerville, MA
> 8 PM
> Contact: Mark Lamoureux, Maudite Productions
We will have hard-to-get-in-Boston UDP books on hand
for sale, too.
> Loudmouth Collective began, ironically, with one
> member, James Hoff, sometime in the late
> winter/early spring of 2001. The collective's goal
> was to publish (chap)books of new work by some of
> the bright and underrated talents within the margins
> of the writing world. Furthermore, each publication
> would strive to challenge the typical physical
> appearance of the (chap)book.
> By March 2001, Hoff had been joined by Ryan Haley
> and preparations had begun for the Anti-Readings,
> which were to be organized with the assistance of
> the members of Ugly Ducking Presse. Anti-Readings
> quickly became the major focus of Loudmouth
> activities for the next year; culminating in a
> triumphant Poetry Project Anti-Reading in March
> During 2003, Loudmouth Collective had a
> retrospective show at Berlin's Elefant + Ship, a
> performance during the Virginia Festival of the
> Book, the premiere screening of Joel Schlemowitz's
> documentary Loudmouth Collective/Ugly Duckling
> Presse/Anti-Reading, and the release of Steve
> Dalachinsky's Trial and Error in Paris and Edmund
> Berrigan's I Feel Tractor.
> Saturday, June 5, at Gallery 108 in Somerville,
> Massachusetts, Loudmouth Collective founder James
> Hoff and Ugly Duckling Presse members Matvei
> Yanklevitch and Anna Moschovakis will be presenting
> another Anti-Reading.
