Published through Indifference Publications, and inspired by a generation of underground Australian poetry; City Without Stories is a punk poet’s call to action to build our own culture from the ground up.

Kylie Supski (poetry)
Maggie May (music)
Norman Jensen (poetry)
Tracey Jane & The Power Dressers (music)
and Waffle Irongirl (poetry)
MC Steve Smart for all things to blame
