SNEAKY PEEK: LOOP 9

Oh me oh my - we've been flat out here at LOOP, bringing you a good time courtesy of LOOP 9, due in stores 8 May. From the mouths of musos - check out the word on the New Zealand music scene, tales of oppression and opportunity, the deal with quotas and the future of Kiwi music. LOOP talked to over 60 New Zealand musicians: they've got a lot to say. Is Te Papa really our place? Take a look inside a work of truly bicultural architecture, Karori's Futuna Chapel. LOOP investigates The Irrefutable Truth about Demons, and gets a strip-tease from comic madman Karl Wills. We interview animator, muso, and publisher of hugely successful children's book The Underwater Melon Man, Fane Flaws.

All this, plus many many more great things to do with your ears and your eyes.

BOOKSTOCK

American literati have been tripping over themselves in an attempt to secure one of the hottest tickets for the summer season... to a three day all-star festival of readings and discussions marking the 75th anniversary of The New Yorker. The 10,000 tickets to the festival sold out in a manner of days, as fans fought for the opportunity to see luminaries such as Pulitzer Prize winners Richard Ford, Annie Proulx and Jhumpa Lahiri, and reclusive authors like Muriel Spark and William Trevor at the May 5-7 event.

LIKE, FAR OUT MAN

Ken Kesey, the American author best-known for his novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, has just fulfilled a life-long dream - to turn the story of his 1964 LSD-fuelled bus trip across America into a movie. The bus trip, recounted in Tom Wolfe's book Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test was always supposed to produce a movie, tentatively titled Intrepid Traveler and his Merry Band of Pranksters Look for a Kool Place. Kesey, with the help of friends, has just finished the first instalment of the proposed film. He has finally been able to get over the major problem in earlier attempts - getting the audio in sync with the pictures. Sure the drugs had nothing to do with it.

NET POETS

Like so many other traditional pursuits, poetry is embracing the changes and opportunities provided by modern technology and the internet. E-poetry is like no paper-based verse: instead 'kinetic poetry' moves and evolves before the reader's eyes, as if reading itself out loud. The Electronic Poetry Center, run by the University of Buffalo, displays the works of dozens of e-poets, and receives 8 million visits a year from 90 countries. Check it out at www.epc.buffalo.edu. The LOOP opinion: Potential? Pretty much limitless. Actual good poetry discovered during my brief visit? None. We're waiting for the good poets to figure out the net - might take a while.

Dive into LOOP 9, hitting the streets on 8 May, and www.loop-e.com for more...
