Car Stories

We love car stories. Especially ones that we can relate to. Introducing our latest collective work, Houpe de Ville.

Car Won't Start CD. Artwork by William GrapesJunky cars - or "hoopties"- that remain road worthy with the help of duct tape, plastic wrap, garbage bags, bungee cords, plastic zip ties, nylon rope, foam insulation, Rustoleum, bondo, primer, patches and plugs...hopefully you get the picture.

We invited a few of our favorite writers and artists to tell us their hooptie stories and the book Houpe de Ville is the result. PLUS, available exclusively through the publisher, the redux of the SS-20 classic, "Car Won't Start" CD recorded by Public Figure!

"The folks at local independent publisher Aurore Press have done more than almost anyone to keep alive the legend of The Jockey Club, the ’80s Punk Rock venue in Newport that put the allegedly behind-the-times Cincinnati on the Punk map and helped foster a strong local Punk scene that lives on to this day." -- Cincinnati CityBeat

Poems by Nick Barrows and Mark Flanigan

The collaboration of two remarkable writers, Nick Barrows ("The Rabbit Punch Defense") and Mark Flanigan ("Journeyman's Lament").

"The combination of the two marks a prodding of humanity and the human psyche that is sometimes dark, sometimes ethereal and sometimes humorous.""The text, featuring the potent voices of Mark Flanigan and Nick Barrow, marks a dark, scathing, humorous and insightful form of poetic storytelling that becomes even more expressive via live performances." -- Cincinnati CityBeat
