Culture Court

Lawrence Russell created www.culturecourt.com  in 1998 as an on-line successor to his pioneering tape magazine DNA.  I've contributed articles on J.G Ballard, William Burroughs, Aleister Crowley, Ken Edwards,  M.John Harrison, Dale PendellIain Sinclair, Colin Wilson, as well as The Poetry Buzz celebration of Allen Fisher. My film and media  reviews include The Day the Earth Caught Fire, Young Adam, Space is the Place (Sun Ra), Asylum and NIgel Kneale's TV drama The Stone Tape.  There are pieces on musicians Vincent Crane (Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Atomic Rooster), King Tubby Pete Brown,  personal memoirs of the 1960s British Blues scene and travels in Norway, as well as a review of Tim Crook's book on radio drama. The site also hosts some of my audio work.
