How three cultural polymaths wrote, published and sold their stories. With director, musician and now novelist John Pain and his publishers from Dunbar Noon: fellow Hallelujah Picasso Peter McLennan and comedian and raconteur Jaq Tweedie. This promises to be a rowdy exploration of in the business of subculture in Aotearoa.

John Pain is a director, graphic designer, musician and - now - a novelist. Well known to music fans as the bass man in Hallelujah Picassos, his newly released novel - The Golden Sword - is an hallucinogenic immersion into the life, times and dreams of arch-colonialist Thomas Raffles.

Peter McLennan is a musician, blogger, DJ and magazine designer, as well as one half of the independent publisher Dunbar Noon.

Jaq Tweedie is a writer and the other half of Dunbar Noon, the publishing company which takes its name from a Hemingway joke about the discipline of writing: “Done by noon, drunk by three.”
