Defense against Squares / Contre les caves
Byron Coley

Defense against Squares / Contre les caves de Byron Coley Byron Coley has written extensively about underground culture since the mid-70s. Known most prominently for his work for Forced Exposure in the 1980s, he has been a columnist for the L.A. Weekly, Arthur, Spin, le Bathyscaphe, Harp, and so on. He co-wrote No-Wave with Thurston Moore (2008). He has written liner notes for hundreds of records, spewed for more zines than anyone could ever remember, and contributed to various anthologies. He currently writes for The Wire, codirects the label Feeding Tube Records, and publishes Bull Tongue Review, a quarterly journal of post-rock cultural pluralism. Byron Coley's previous book for L'Oie de Cravan was the collection of his articles, C'est La Guerre: Early Writings 1978-1983 (2011).

Poems of resistance against death and the dead squares. After years of collecting and reading the stuff, Byron Coley started writing poetry in 1998 as a reaction to the death vortex seemingly surrounding everything in his life at the time. From that moment on, he wrote lots of poems, mainly published in chapbooks, broadsides, and underground magazines: all almost impossible to find. Defense Against Squares is the first major collection of Byron Coley's poetry to be published. It features odes to personal heroes such as Jack Rose, Lou Reed, and Captain Beefheart, poems against the rotten world of George Bush and words of resistance against all squares.

Introduction by Kim Gordon. Cover drawing by Charles Burns. 166 pages. Bilingual, French translation by Marie Frankland (John-Glassco Translation Award 2007).

Bric-a-brac & The small hours
Myriam Gendron

Bric-a-brac & The small hours de Myriam Gendron 7 " vinyl record. Bric-à-Brac and The small hours, two songs that are not on the vinyl pressing of the album No so deep as a welll. Words by Dorothy Parker.
First production of «Oie de Cravan Records» co-released with Feeding Tube Records. 500 copies. Sleeve hand printed by Kiva Stimac of Popolo Press. Lyrics included.
Listen to Bric-à-brac :Here
"Following her acclaimed 2014 debut LP, Not So Deep As a Well (FTR 146-3LP), Montreal's Myriam Gendron has created musical settings for another pair of Dorothy Parker poems -- 'Bric a Brac' and 'The Small Hours.' The slow, sensuously beautiful combination of Myriam's voice and guitar, combined with dolorous genius of Parker's words is as intimate as ever. The pairing is seamless and natural, conveying an instant warmth that is a wonderful way to see out the winter, hailing the spring on our doorstep, with hints of the endless circle of seasons to follow. With a letterpressed sleeve and insert by the brilliant Kiva Tanya Stimac of Popolo Press, this record is a rare and special object." --Byron Coley,

Dix poèmes d'Edgar Poe traduits par Alice Becker-Ho
Edgar Poe

Dix poèmes d'Edgar Poe traduits par Alice Becker-Ho de Edgar  Poe Ten poems by Edgar Poe, translated by Alice Becker-Ho (Alice Debord).

There is no need to present Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849). This book is a very unique translation of ten of his poems (the most famous one being Annabel Lee) that had been previously translated by Stéphane Mallarmé in a precious style very remote from the spirit of Poe. Alice Becker-Ho's translation is both precise and moving. The selection here and the translation are obviously haunted by the theme of the lost of the loved one, central to Poe and to the translator.

Poetry. Bilingual english/french edition. 15,5 x 23 cm.
Hand stiched, 40 uncut pages on ivory paper. 700 copies
April 2013.
