Proletarian Post-Modernism

Stewart Home | Proletarian Post-Modernism

Proletarian Post-Modernism is a 12" LP by Stewart Home composed of an idiosyncratic live performance from 2012 and a studio reading of 'Cunt Lickers Anonymous'. Side A's live recording features readings from a broad selection of Home's repertoire of novels, with extracts from Down & Out in Shoreditch and Hoxton, Memphis Underground, 69 Things to Do with a Dead Princess and Blood Rites of the Bourgeoisie. The last of these was recited by Home while standing on his head and is therefore the sound of upside down! The performance also includes a reading of 6 poems which use found texts, and culminates with Home shredding one of his books. The side provides a full view of Home's lively and unique shows. As Stewart writes in the record's sleeve notes: 'Just stick the record on and laugh your ass off.'

Proletarian Post-Modernism will be released on 23 November 2013 and will be launched with a performance by Stewart at The Test Centre in Stoke Newington.

The album is released in a limited edition of 300 copies with a pictorial inner sleeve and lyric sheet. 15 copies contain a signed and numbered pamphlet of Home's writings from a recent trip to Berlin, specially produced for the record.
