Attack Ad (Marxist-Leninist)

Somewhere around here I have a copy of the CPC(M-L) pamphlet Northrop Frye: High Priest of Clerical Obscurantism by one Pauline Kogan. Sometime in the early to mid 1980s, the American radical newspaper The Guardian ran a review of Kogan's posthumously published collection of poetry. It seems to have vanished from the face of the earth. Anyone knowing the title, or whereabouts of a copy, please let me know.

While in London a few years ago, I trudged out to the bookstore of the Canadian party's sister organization, in hopes that it would have material by the late Cornelius Cardew, the British composer, who had been a member. In particular it would have been nice to find a copy of Stockhausen Serves Imperialism.

No such luck, though they did have Stalin and Enver Hoxha aplenty. But see the review in Bookforum of the new Cardew biography.

The normally very exacting Bookforum staff have somehow permitted reference to Cardew's group as the Marxist-Leninist Revolutionary Communist Party of Britain. This is, of course, wrong. It's the Revolutionary Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist). This kind of thing is easy to check considering they have a webpage.

I don't know if you're interested, but "Stockhausen Serves Imperialism, and Other Articles" is available as a free e-book at this link

Ah, the party of Hardial Bains, aka Hardly No Brains.
