New soundBarn Press chapbooks by Lee Ranaldo and James Cullinane.are now available on

soundBarn Press is pleased to announce the publication of new poetry chapbooks by Lee Ranaldo and James Cullinane.

Lee Ranaldo is a musician/visual artist/writer and founding member of rock band Sonic Youth. “how not to get played on the radio” collects twenty-two of Ranaldo’s signature poetry writings-- many never before published. His swirling fragments of observed and found text map an American terrain seen through the hazed glass of tour busses, airport windows and the avant-garde voices of the past century.

James Cullinane is an artist and writer whose visual works have been seen in New York for the past twenty years. History, politics and the heritage of Williams and Olsen find new footing in the twenty + poems of “Found a Little Jawbone…” From the opening epigram to the concluding image of a ruined roman aqueduct, Cullinane assembles the triumphs and failures of his surrounds. This is the first publishing of Cullinane’s poetry.

soundBarn Press inaugurated the chapbook series in early 2011 with artist/musician and soundBarn founder Thomas Lail’s first collection of poetry, “May 08- Feb 10.” Like his other works in sound and collage, Lail’s poetry combines and juxtaposes fragmentary glances into arcing structures-- them selves minimalist shards-- populated with history, ideas and stolen fragments of the everyday.

All titles are $9 postage paid. soundBarn Press titles are available online at and at various online and actual locations.
soundBarn Press is an offshoot of The soundBarn, a performance venue for experimental music sited in rural Columbia County, New York. soundBarn Press seeks to complement and further the commitment of The soundBarn to new and experimental forms and emerging voices by publishing experimental writings and poetry.
