Perpetual Skip is the new collection of poems from the electrifying voice of Middex.

In this bookwork, 11 sermons, once soaked in pools of echo are orphaned from the noise – taking on an urgent and compelling archive — (non) prayers stoked by vivid light.

Here, poems are on the move, crossing all zones — sprawling grounds of a strange borough — with broken catholic memories and colour.

In Skinhead on a Raft we follow the arc of a smoked and discarded cigarette and stay with it on the floor. Discarded cigarette, discarded truths. Glue Preference honours the writers in the unlit underground yards.

Stories look outwards; through a scratch-tagged bus window, to the ceiling (and beyond) of a rented flat, and into the canal — rank and receiving. Perpetual Skip is a constant. A beautiful mess with a million stories.

Middex has previously released records through Polytechnic Youth, The Tapeworm, Makina Books and Infant Tree.
