a Tale Etched In Blood
Christopher Brookmyre is sometimes referred to as the “British Carl Hiaasen”, a tribute to his knack of producing really hard-edged novels, some with a remarkably high body count, while at the same time managing to be one of the funniest writers in Britain. To achieve that without altogether trivialising crime or resorting to crude slapstick is a very fine art indeed. It is as though Brookmyre is writing about another dimension – one uncomfortably similar to our own – and that is what enables the laughter to flow without hindrance or guilt. In his novel Boiling a Frog, for example, some corrupt politicians come to a very sticky end, the sort we might wish on enemies but never impose, in a vicarious fantasy revenge on scumbags everywhere.
The Knife – We Share Our Mothers Health
The Mysterious brother and sister act, The Knife are back with their new single, We Share Our Mothers Health. The single is set to be released on July 24th and is accompanied by an extraordinary video made by the talented and infamous Japanese artist Motomichi Nakamura.
Once upon a time, before the advent of the indie rocker and the alternative chick, before primitivism became a style trend and tattoo parlors set up shop on the good avenues, tattoos were the secret language of a restricted world, a world of criminals. The photographs, drawings and texts published here are part of a collection of 3,600 tattoos accumulated over a lifetime by prison attendant Danzig Baldayev. Tattoos were his entrance into a secret world, a world in which he acted as an ethnographer, recording the rituals of a closed society. The icons and tribal languages he documented are artful, distasteful, sexually explicit and sometimes just simply strange, reflecting as they do the lives and mores of convicts. Skulls, swastikas, harems of naked women, a smiling Al Capone, assorted demons, medieval knights in armor, daggers sheathed in blood, benign images of Christ, mosques and minarets, sweet-faced mothers and their babies, armies of tanks, and a horned Lenin–these are the signs with which this hidden world of people mark and identify themselves.

No-one really knows how Betty Curse pounced into the world, or from whence she crept, but the legends are legion. Some say she’s some venom-pretty monster cloned by mad scientists from the spittle of Siouxie Sioux, the tears of Christina Ricci and the shotgun brain mulch of Dead from Mayhem. Others claim that she wandered out of a graveyard mist, naked and feral, gnawing on the innards of a hand-slaughtered wolf. The more Hammer Horror-inclined say that she crawled fully formed from a smoke-spewing rent in a cathedral crypt wall somewhere beneath Vienna; the cyber-creeps reckon she chewed her way out of a computer wire downloading “The Nightmare Before Christmas”.
