For the next installment of Syndicate we collaborate with SCREE magazine (http://screemagazine.wordpress.com/) to bring you Syndicate+. Performing will be Juha Virtanen, Luke Allan, Greg Thomas, and Lamplighter. Please note we’re taking a fieldtrip to Summerhall (Red Lecture Theatre) for this one. As usual the event is 100% Free! + Each guest receives a limited edition SCREE publication made for this occasion.
Juha Virtanen currently lives in Kent. His poems have appeared in various small press publications, including Halfcircle, Intercapillary Space, SNOW and Vile Products. His first collection, Backchannel Apraxia, is forthcoming from Contraband Books. He also helps out with the poetry magazine ZONE.
Luke Allan is based in Edinburgh. He runs the small-press sine wave peak, which is due to publish the first issue of a concrete anthology titled Quait in summer 2013. He is co-founder of the poetry magazine Butcher’s Dog, and edits the journal of Newcastle Philosophy Society. In 2011 his poetry received the Northern Promise Award.
Greg Thomas lives in Edinburgh. He has published some poems in SCREE and other places. He likes letraset and eating, and knows little of technology, except in a paleolithic sort of way, for which he apologises.
Lamplighter is Robin Legge. His music can be described as GLASGOW HIP HOP OR SYNTH-BASED ODOURS
