ELEVENELEVEN :: 32 MATTRESS GRAVE

We would just like to thank all the artists and guest programmers who have contributed to making 2010 a great year for the Eleven Eleven podcast. Have a happy holiday season. We’ll be back in 2011.

Christmas *special* by Shane Jesse Christmass aka Mattress Grave.

Mattress Grave is the musical and sound permutation of Shane Jesse Christmass, the Perth-born, Melbourne-based writer.

In 2006 Christmass was runner-up in The Age Short Story Competition with his entry Remaking the Image of the World, and in 2008 he published an anthology of his short stories, Croak & Grist (Paroxysm Press). He has published a number of stories including Cold to the Point Past Death, (Red Cent Publishing, 2010), The Charnel Stink Within, (Mini Shots, Vignette Press, 2008), The Arvo & Early Evening of the Axe, (10 Years that Didn’t Kill Us, 2008, Paroxysm Press).

Other fiction work has featured in the journals New Wave Vomit, LIES/ISLE, amphibi.us, Cordite, one-eight vulture, dotdotdash and The Diamond & the Thief, as well as sound poetry in the Atlanta journal, As Long As It Takes. He also edits the journal Queen Vic Knives. He just completed his first public reading of his screenplay, Orderly, at the inaugural Lion Pie Laboratory in Sydney.

“I oppose the hypocalcaemia of mendacity; the floods of the despair points; the common goodness to not hang ourselves with our neckties” – Mattress Grave.
