Graham Bendel Dress Rehearsal Brags an az of unpopular culture by Graham Bendel

In 2005, he directed the documentary Billy Childish Is Dead, which was nominated for a British Independent Film Award and has been shown in Oslo, Montreal, Croatia, London and New York.

He is the editor of two volumes of Poems For The Retired Nihilist, published by Fortune Teller Press. It was featured on "the must list" of The Guardian on 2 September 2005.

His debut novel is called A Nasty Piece Of Work, published by Fortune Teller Press. A Nasty Piece Of Work - "a quirky and highly original psychological thriller" - was published in a small initial quantity, featuring the artwork of writer Clive Barker.

Bendel has been described by Dazed and Confused as both "multi-talented" & a "creative crackerjack" and has recently finished an independent documentary about Vic Godard and Subway Sect called Derailed Sense(featuring appearances from Luke Haines and Irvine Welsh).

His current novel, published by Fortune Teller Press in 2015, is called Dress Rehearsal Brags: an a-z of unpopular culture. It is an encyclopedic examination of an everyman's life, traversing the 80s and 90s and including many instances of 'alternative culture'.
