Indie Author Interview No. 6: Harry Whitewolf

indie revolution

Confession: when I was first approached by Mr. Whitewolf a couple years back (has it been that long already?) to check out his poetry collection “New Beat Newbie”, I was more than a little wary. Poetry? I hadn’t really read any poetry (besides Bukowski, who doesn’t count in my opinion) since high school and let’s be real – studying force-fed poetry in high school fucking sucked and I’ve been traumatized ever since.
                                                             NewBeatNewbie

But oh how wrong I was! Whitewolf is actually a real-life word sorcerer/warlock/dragon, because anyone who can reference and rhyme “govern-cunt” with anything is flipping brilliant and has gained my everlasting admiration. Seriously though, Whitewolf be spitting some hot poetry fire and you all should check out…

LAF Statement on London Attack

“Our comrades from the Anti-Fascist movement and even from our own group are currently fighting on the front lines near Raqqa, the capital of ISIS. They are their fighting with an international brigade formed of all nationalities, religions and genders.”

London Antifascists

Screen Shot 2015-01-09 at 13.26.58

On March 22 there was an attack outside Parliament that has killed four and injured many. No sooner had this happened when Tommy Robinson, former leader of the EDL appeared at the scene of the attack to rave about a clash of civilisations and a war with all Muslims. This was swiftly followed up with an announcement of a march planned by Britain First in London.

The truth of the matter is this. These so called patriots are delighted that this has happened. This one fanatic has given them the opportunity they desired to try and start a conflict in society drawn down racial lines. They would seek to rebuild their failing movements off the blood and tears shed by ordinary people, they would use this attack to justify their own brand of jackbooted terror against the Muslim population of this country.

But we will not let them.

Interview and Spotlight with Punk indie author Andy Carrington

Illustrating Words

I came across Andy Carrington’s work via GoodReads. I had interviewed Harry Whitewolf and he liked and shared the post. After that we became acquaintances. Andy’s bio and his books got me all curious. I have always been a non-conformist, so the ideas behind his book titles and covers were something I assimilated with. I think we live in a world where the systems have failed and Andy, like Mr. Wolf and R. Dreyfus are some of the few who are representing this indignation through works of written art.

I haven’t yet read Andy’s books – yet, but have added them to my to-read list. However, some good friends of mine at GR, have read and left excellent reviews of his material. Without further ado, you can read here an interview we did these past days.

Football For All – Why We’re Crowdfunding

Since the start of the Football For All project in 2014, we have had overwhelming support from our supporters on social media. Quite simply, i don’t think Football For All would be such a success without that support. Not only has social media allowed us to spread the word about the project and get more people involved, but we’ve also had some amazing donations of football boots, old football shirts that we could put to use and also ran competitions to help us raise funds to pay for new kit.

The project itself has become self-sufficient in the last 12 months, something which we are extremely proud of. Due to increased participation last year we even started to operate at a slight ‘profit’, which we were always conscious of. We don’t want to be running the project for a profit, so we lowered the cost of participating and then established a…

1 – When did you start writing? And why did you pick up Poetry/Travel and Children’s Fiction?
I’ve always written things. Even as a small child I was coming up with stories and poems, and as a young adult, I was writing a lot of poetry and often performing it. So poetry has always been something…
