Other Clod publications (including books and sounds)
Bobs Deep-Freeze Inventory
2nd edition of a book which did surprisingly well the 1st time round. A new, improved cover.
Manifesto in Significance
J Hackson self-illustrated views on creativity in 110 page wire-bound A4 publication. Illustrations from the late 1980s.
Essays, stories, pictures. Special issues (jazz, pubs, Luton Town etc) with writing from the team and special guests.
MoUsTachE Chance Encounter
Another first in the series. A hearty exploration of tv faces; more pictures and fun than text.
Luton Haiku vol 5
Closing off one decade of Luton haiku writing and heralding the next one. More fun and frolics from the 17 sybballul Poe-wits.
Eight Years of Radio
More linear ground breaks. Study of radio licences during the depression years, 1932-39. Limited run of 50.
Fantastic Life Adult Colouring Book
Mindfulness done right. Captions and grown up pictures for the colouring-in crowd.
Luton Haiku vol 4
The fourth edition of Luton Haiku's determined spiritual assault on Clod Magazine's much maligned home town. Covers calendar years 2013 and 2014.
On the Rails; Elliot P Smoke in Amer
Part scrapbook, part travel guide, part memoir. All colour and overpriced. Another epic fail, especially as all content already exists in a blog.
Handy Bag Shop
The Handy Bag Shop stood on the corner of Adelaide Street and Wellington Street in Luton. It is a well remembered establishment, despite being demolished. This publication focuses on its scant remains and displays an admirably contemptuous approach to official paperwork.
Luton Haiku vol 3
Third volume, much in the same vein as the first and second. This, however, follows them and reflects on the removal of the ancient footbridge between High Town and the town centre (across the tracks).
Bob's Deep-Freeze Inventory
The Deep-Freeze Inventory is the book Bob uses to record the contents of the freezer. This publication is a selection of 60 pages from it. The pages included no longer contain any entries and have been subsequently cut out and discarded from the original log.
Luton Knockouts Film
Clod Magazine features. There are promos and things from the wonderful Dan Mudford's YouTube channel. Google it. Go on.
Clod Magazine Reading Tile
As a result of books being altered and of losing the keys to the house, we've had to re-format. We are back in control with the paper and hardboard reading tile; a format which doesn't auction us to new owners, laminated beaurocrats, silicon techno-rats and market manipulator filth.
Luton Haiku volume two
More haikus about Luton, covering a time in which the fortunes of the football team slumped somewhat dramatically and Esther Rantzen ran for Parliament.
The Cat and the Calamari
Kingston's second collection of short stories, capitalising on the success of his first set. Again, this failed to set the literary world alight, but used a nice font on the cover.
A first book of stories by Clod hanger-on Andrew 'Andy' Kingston. The Turtle Dove on the front bears no relation to the content of the stories. Kingston hoped that this collection would ease him into feted circles and literary lunches. It didn't.
Luton Haiku volume one
First volume collecting Luton Haikus from 2007-2009. A time when Luton's football club embarked on a nervous breakdown, Bedfordshire redrew its boundaries to snobbishly exclude the town and the bus station was demolished. Dark days indeed.
Clod Magazine Book of Food
Big production number including entries by big production people (John Hegley, Sam Jordison, Rhodri Marsden, Jowe Head etc). Despite the splendid efforts of these folk and an ISBN number, sales were, at best, stodgy.
Sounds Like Luton 2005
More found and contrived sounds, recorded in the field on preposterously bad equipment. There's some musical interlude provided by most of The Knockouts. Released in limited numbers on compact disc with a remastered version of the far superior "Sounds Like Luton 1989".
Luton Town is Latin Town
New millenium musical compilation of the sorts of exotic sounds drifting through Luton's balmy streets in the last days of the bus station. A two volume cassette only release which really packed a punch in the Hart Hill "cat, cocktail and cucumber" evenings of the early noughties.
Sounds Like Luton 1989
Recorded in the earliest years of Clod Magazine with help from Tiger Cabs and various people from Caddington. Highlights include a round of lemonades at a country pub on top of M1 junction 10, and Thrilled Skinny/Tim Fitzagre applauding the town hall clock.
