Bones & The Aft

Published by Bookartbookshop; a brand  new Liver & Lights Compendium paperback

 comprehensive selection of those lyrics made notable in  performance by Bones & The Aft and The After Rabbit
The book will also be liberally illuminated, both full page  and text-sprinkled..

The Liver & Lights Chronicle was started by John Bently and friends in 1983, 
beginning life as a sort of manifesto and  evolving over the  33 years
 of its existence into a  lifelong exploration of the book as a medium and  a highly personal, 
eccentrically illuminated chronicle of our peculiar lives and times,
 with particular reference to a mythic London wherein the author resides.

Only the first hundred copies of this book will be numbered  and 
signed and contain a signed three colour foamcut print and a cd copy 
of the recent bones and the aft album The Rafter Habit. 
These will available to subscribers from the end of October at a cost of 
£14.99 per copy plus £2 P&P (postage free for multiple copies)

Everything about the Liver & Lights project is completely individual. Go and explore it…”

“A mythical metropolis inhabited by a teeming population of sharply drawn, richly detailed  characters”. Aiden Dunne. The Irish Times
