Description

Itchy Monkey Press is an independent publisher specialising in punk rock. Founded by Mike Dines in 2014, with the release of Ted Curtis’ the darkening light (a novel based on the north London anarcho-punk scene of the 1980s), Itchy Monkey then saw the release of the much-awaited Tales From the Punkside (2014), edited by Mike Dines and Greg Bull. Pulling upon prose, poetry, art and the academic to express the everyday in punk, Tales From the Punkside was written in the style of an ‘anarcho-narrative,’ an attempt to present punk in an intelligent and thoughtful light without getting too bogged down by the academic. As such, the volume is purposely accessible with chapters on squatting, women in punk and glue sniffing. As a follow up, Itchy Monkey published ‘Some of Us Scream Some of Us Shout’: Myths, Folklore and Epic Tales of the Anarcho (2015), Alastair Gordon's monograph Crass Reflections (2016), and the third in the ‘Punkside’ trilogy And All Around Us Was Darkness (2017). After a two-year break, the next three publications – all poetry-based volumes – were released, including Factories Run by Robots (2019), Trevor Paviours’ Gagging Order (2019) and Stephen Spencer-Fleet’s I Want Out (2020). The most recent publication is the accompaniment to a Slovenia-based exhibition surrounding the band anarcho-punk band Crass, entitled I’m Not Penny Rimbaud: Who the Hell is Penny Rimbaud? (2021)
