CREATE DISTURBANCE IN YOUR MIND by Private Sorrow
120mm x 155mm, 132pp, perfect bound with fold in flaps, black and white digital printed interior, red and violet risograph printed cover, first edition of 200, 2022
Landing on my doorstep in the Summer of 2022 was a package from Matthew. Within this bubblewrap casing was a book, a hefty book, called Create Disturbance In Your Mind. A 'micro-edition publication' (I received copy 15/57) which I was infatuated with from the get go. Full colour collages adorn the left hand pages, and automatic writing in short passages on the right. Typewritten, fast. As you reach the end you find the works are all created and correspond to a 2CD compilation 'Create Disturbance In Your Mind' by Midnight Mines, of which Sorrow is one half. Listening and responding in immediate fashion creating the outcome. I was struck by how immediate this was. Typewritten, fast, no outtakes, all included.
I then contacted Sorrow on a whim—can I release this through The Grass is Green...?—he had found me, I will find him. As with lets say, Punk is Dad by Jamie Johns, I felt there was so much to be seen and felt from this publication that a shift from micro- to open- was appropriate. And here we are. The original full colour and A5, this version smaller for the pocket and black and white, call it a facsimile, call it making it as immediate as possible.
