Partial Leaves from The Gospel of John

John Murry with Will Russell
pocket-sized
105 x 148 mm
52 page
paperback
due July 4, 2022







Over at Hesterglock Press towers in deepest Bristol we’re genuinely excited to publish this A6 pocket-sized book on July 4th by @johnmurry & Will Russell. I first made contact with John through the much-missed (?) counter-culture blog The Brink way back in the mid 2000’s, interviewing him and Bob Frank (RIP) around 2006. The World Without End interview Parts 1 & 2 found it’s way onto The Brink as well as Outsideleft, where it can still be read here. I met John in London in 2006 when he and Bob were touring Europe with @chuckprophetinexile & The Mission Express. We gelled in a messy kind of way and then lost contact. Unbeknown to us, addiction became a common thread in our past lives. I didn’t see John until he was touring #TheGracelessAge @rubyworks album at a gig in Brighton. A powerful performance. Then we drifted apart and years later I was sitting in a community cafe in Bristol when who should walk in but Mr. Murry. We were surprised to see each other in such a random place. I was working on Hesterglock Press stuff as well as my own visual poetry, John was working on his latest album, The Stars Are God’s Bullet Holes (@subcatmusic ). Again we drifted, but not for long. We were soon sharing stories and books, talking about poetry, visual art, revolution, politics, daughters and writer Will Russell, who John had been working with on Partial Leaves. They sent me a draft MS and I immediately wanted to publish it. So here it is. It’s beautifully good. A bit like a Gideon Bible you might find on the bedside cabinet in cheap hotel/motel room only more spiritual. In fact I read somewhere that all hotel/motel rooms are required by law to have a copy of Partial Leaves in every room. Reading a page is one of your 5-a-day vitamin supplements according to top scientific shamans and sages. Read the whole book and you’re assured a place at the top table. Who’s top table? Well, that’s for you to find out …

Read an interview John did with Simon Hattenstone for The Guardian on June 16, 2021 here.
