Nick-e Melville on 3am

Keeps getting better. Nick-e is an awesome force, powerful powerful authentic poet from Scotland, I've had him down a few times to read at Enemies / Maintenant stuff and you know when he's with you that the evening will be one in which something happens, internally or externally to those foolish / nice enough to show. His groundbreaking visual work is really his - that is it maintains a consistent sense of humour, of wit, of cutting satire, of sophistication but is so simple and immediate in its mode and style and realisation that it captures something really innate about the proximity of the culture it is lampooning and the place it has grown out of. Anyway, to have his work on 3am is really great, really represents what I'm trying to do with the editorship of the poetry part of the magazine. check it
