C.R. Avery & Very Special Guest
C.R. Avery's bio by Patricia Smith~
cue the frenzied combo of molar and spit.
his tongue touches every chroma on its way to blue.
he's been rinsing with gravel, flossing with wire
and chewing brick again, he's been a bad, bad boy.
but he is crackerjack conjurer of washboards and
rubber, even suburb girls welcome the twinging. i
want to nibble yesterday's corona from his chin, rub
my index finger along the surface of his laugh, pull
the maw open to check the slick road of his throat.
there's something illegal going on down there, the
sweet keening of ancient instruments. the orchestra
is fidgety, click-hipped, steaming inside that skin.
the boy opens the beauteous and, in gut rendering,
words become both otherwise and everything.

Said of C.R. Avery:
" ... a cultural magpie who's impossible to pigeon-hole"
- David Kidman,
Net Rhythms Magazine

" Raw talent"
- Utah Phillips

" Avery.has created his own off-beat world of spoken word and musical soundtrack that is
riveting and rewarding."      
- Lonesome Highway Magazine, Ireland

"..blowing my mind"
- Tom Waits

" Like a collaboration between Beck and the Beastie Boys at their most experimental"
-Stewart Mason, Music Guide

" First there were the Beat writers...then there was Hunter S. Thompson  now there is C. R. Avery."
- Luke Starr,
Kruger Magazine, UK
