Remember the story of D.H Lawrence being thrown in the slammer for using lewd language such as cunt in his novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover’? That was back in the 1920s. I found it laughable that recently one of Australia’s biggest publishers refused to print a book called SMUT because of ‘potentially offensive material’. Pffft.
SMUT is an art book, filled with nipple arousing poetry, photography and art work. To be honest, I usually find most printed poetry pretty anaesthetising but the work in this book is actually engaging. SMUT arouses and sickens yet it opens the imagination and reads like a man with a brain full of cocaine and a raging boner…
The words are from three highly sexual, intentionally chauvinistic men, they are simple and easy to…swallow. Thankfully, no thesaurus fucking here. SMUT is a private, unpolitically correct publication work that freely spurts the thoughts and desires of the penis… err the man (the two are of the one mind here). The art work and design are the interpretation of the writing from three females. The result is a primal, arousing and entertaining publication.
It’s all pretty graphic and not available from the likes of Borders. If you want to get your little mits on a copy head to Polyester, Logical Insanity or etsy. Or get one for FREE. WMSG have one shiny copy (except maybe for a few little marks…) to give away. But you gotta work for it. Send us your best smutty poem or tale and we’ll send you the book. You have one week to get your SMUT on, if it isn’t already…
Add your poem as a comment under this post to win a copy. We’ll announce the winner next week.

Kiri Joyce is a singer / songwriter / keyboardist with bite, her raw lyrics are delivered with a voice that is plunged from her soul and melts your insides like butter. Both times I have seen her I have left feeling touched by the way in which she lays her heart and soul onto the stage, knowing it won’t be long till I see her play again. The lovely Wesley Ann in Northcote provides the perfect red velvet, cosy backdrop to experience such a truly beautiful, original performance.

Queer out this coming Friday 4 December. Grouse are launching their third season and have made the right dicision to move the party from Thursday to Friday nights. Grouse Party have enough banging DJs to get the curious of folk into the fold.
What: Grouse Queer Party.
Who: Check the line up and set time out below.
Where: Neverwhere Bar, 185 Smith Street, Fitzroy (Next to Coconut Palms)
When: Friday 4 December, 2009. Time: 9pm – 3am
Damage: , $10 on the door
Also, get down early for cheap drinks: $5 Sprits and $2.50 pots: 9-10pm
Da Line UP:
Hailing from Washington DC, PARTYLINE is a punk trio with some serious feminism royalty at the helm; asides from being the former frontwoman of BRATMOBILE, singer ALLISON WOLFE, was also a major instigator of the RIOT GRRRL movement in the Nineties and the first LADYFESTS in the Naughties. When PARTYLINE toured in 2006, they loved Australia (and the concept of ‘bogans’) SO MUCH that they nearly cancelled their flights back home. Back in town for Ladyfest Melbourne, we’re very excited to have Allison, Angela and Crystal on board to get the Grouse Party started.
If you were seeing gigs around Melbourne a few years back, you can’t have missed the all-girl powerhouse that was ORIGAMI! Very sorely missed around the scene, this half-American/half-Aussie band relocated to the USA in 2005 and sadly disbanded last year. With American-born singer, RHONDA SIMMONDS back in Australia on holidays we invited her to get some of the ORIGAMI girls back together for a very special DJ set. (Note: come early for this – Origami DJs + Happy Hour = ultimate grouseness!)
A.K.A. Romy, A.K.A. MACROMANTICS and one part of HEAVY MENTAL. Naturally it wouldn’t be a GROUSE PARTY without our very own headbanging heiress, ANN OMINOUS, blasting the bangin traxx well into the A.M.
1am: ANN OMINOUS…………AKA Romy (Macromantics/Heavy Mental)
11pm: PARTYLINE DJS (USA)…………Allison, Angela & Crystal (USA)
9pm: ORIGAMI DJS (USA)…………Rhonda & Sarah

YAKKS will play with Breaker Morant and Constant Mongrel this Thursday at Pony which can be found at 68 Little Collins St Melbourne.
Yakks play a raw stripped down type of synth punk. Originally a two piece band started in a bedroom somewhere in East Brunswick, the band has now expanded into a 4 piece with 2 synths, 2 guitars and a beaten up drum machine…so for a small amount of clams, only 5, you should come down and have a beer and heckle the band members to play covers of koto.
