About the book and the authors :

Jeremy Reed is one of Britain’s most innovative poets and acclaimed authors who shoots from the hip, leaving no prisoners, dispersing his star spangled operettas and prose like angel dust. Author of over 45 books of cutting edge literature, “Anaconda Johnny” is the end result of his collaboration with Jamie Mcleod’s toxic imagery evoking the 21st century spirits of both Genet and Rimbaud. Inventing poetry and song out of memory with a hunger for the cities neon-drenched underbelly and its graffiti slashed corridors of lost souls. They probe deep into the stench of urban detrius with their star-studded cast of losers and depressingly low beat cinematic images for the imagination to feast upon.
Concentrating on zones where the flesh and the spirit are in eternal opposition. A land of dead-end chancers, pop stars, criminals and male whores. Trading and exchanging in all that is forbidden with the currency and beauty of youth. Trawling through the luxe-lands and into trash cans, via heartbreak hotel and then back again for some more.
 
“The most beautiful, outrageously brilliant poetry in the world.”
Bjork
 
“Every time he goes out into our mundane world he makes the dust sing’ ”                   
J.G.Ballard
 
Jamie McLeod is essentially an artist who brings together his passion for sex, art 
and rock and roll in a sleazetastic melee of demi-monde deconstruction. His photos
and artwork uses classic poster boy pin-ups found imagery and symbolism to create
a post-punk mash-up of pretty boys with filthy minds and dirty words. Using the
classic beatnik cut-up techniques of William Burroughs and Brion Gysin, McLeod
creates a new lingua franca from the verbal detritus of the streets. From reverse
 swastikas, poison labels, graffiti, to police cordon tape, it’s all-ripe for the twisting.
Like Rimbaud came back with a camera”.                                  

Michelle Olley
 
 “’Jeremy Reed is British poetry’s glam, spangly shape-shifting answer to David Bowie.”
The Independent
 
“Jeremy Reed is a legend. What more can you fucki­­­ng ask”       
Pete Doherty
 
“ Jamie Mcleod is an artist who brings out the punk in my soul. Whether it’s with
 pop vaudeville, neo glam or by simply making me look good. He has has those
X rated eyes to offer the world a new surprise.”                   
Marc Almond
 
“Jeremy Reed is the British Rimbaud’ ”
