Jordan mentions Steve Healey's new book on Coffee House Press, which is but one in what is becoming an ever more present sub-genre of "post-avant-youngster" poetry: Indie Rock Poetry. I can see myriad instances in which both indie rock and poetry correspond. Hell, some of us "New Brutalists" tried to put on "LitRock 2003" back in 2003, when we were at Mills College. We'd wanted to bring together indie musicians cum poets and poets cum indie musicians and those who were influenced in either artform by the other, to talk about it, read, and play music. Ultimately we failed due to the fact that no one wanted to help fund such a thing, and that was very sad.
I know Clover tried something similar at UC Davis but on a much smaller scale. Besides, he wears a Hole (Courtney Love's former band) shirt, which pretty much blows his indie cred even if he is wearing it ironically. No offense intended JC.
