Indigo: Journal of West Australian Writing Volume III edited by Donna Ward et al
Tactile Books, 2009
At the level of function, a literary journal produces a collection of writing on a periodical basis. However, a journal is also another kind of machine, an apparatus which generates a readership, presents writers, exercises its own ideological assumptions (however loosely formed or evolving), and which makes claims to a certain cultural space. At this discursive level, Going Down Swinging and Indigo are very different animals.

Well I think ever since Primary School probably, everything I wrote had a sort of comedy element to it-I always loved being witty and playing around with words and being a bit silly and breaking rules and it just sort of always stayed with me-especially as a musician. I've got a whole heap of serious songs as well, but no matter how big the crowd is you never get much feedback on them.

It seduces with its surfaces, impresses with the breadth of its knowledge of popular culture (although who around here doesn't have a vast amount of pop influences to draw on?), even as it makes a claim to some sort of academic credibility with a few snazzy literary allusions, but for me, it's a face with no heart. To this offering you might smile, say 'Thanks for a great night', and go on trawling.
