Paleo Psycho Pop
Trashface launches Paleo Psycho Pop Selected Writings 1995-2008 by Hilarius Hofstede. Paleo Psycho Pop is the name of the magazine launched in broadsheet format at the conclusion of Hofstede’s Moscow-Amsterdam-Dublin tour of 1996; from April to September of that year he had created performances and actions, made suites of exhibitions for showing in Moscow, Amersfoort, Amsterdam and Dublin. In addition there are two selections from his other published writings, De Markies Van Water and Microsoft Mon Amour. With a comprehensive introduction by Patrick Healy, this publication represents a thorough introduction to the writings of a substantial European artist.


Essay on Irish Swearing Available in Secret Book & Record Store
If you need to get your hands on a copy of An Essay on Irish Swearing before Christmas (or during the sales) then you can get a copy in The Secret Book and Record Store on Wicklow Street. You'll need to keep your eyes open to find this one. Pass Tower Records walking away from Grafton Street and not far on you'll see an open doorway. There's usually a blackboard pointing you down a narrow passage and into the shop. A good stock of "quality" literature and non-fiction (not generally pulp bestsellers or airport fiction); this one is also recommended highly to vinyl collectors. It is also available in the wonderful Winding Stair Bookshop by the Ha'penny Bridge.


Some welcome recognition
A little welcome recognition for Trashface from the Evening Herald courtesy of Mr Tom Galvin. The Herald was kind enough to run this charming article about us in August...but Trashface, being a tad dense, did not pick up on the fact till now!
