Urbanomic is a publisher and arts organization based in the UK. Our aims are: to act as an advocate for philosophical thinking as a creative practice, and for the continuing cultural importance of philosophy; to support research activities addressing crucial issues that do not fall under any one discipline or practice; to present to the public the results of that research, and an insight into the research process itself, through a variety of media; to engender interdisciplinary thinking and production.

    As the COVID era segues into something far more cursed, in this exclusive communiqué Anthony Nine drops a poetic-occultural dubplate mapping the fundamental lines of contemporary struggle in a world of politricksters. With a timely advocacy of the power and discipline of real magical practice against the insidious enchantments of ‘meme magic’ and the uncontrolled consequences of its tawdry cons, this impassioned reading touches on memory, the powers of bewilderment and misdirection, and our relation to life and death, past and future. Essential listening for survival in 21st Century Babylon. Anthony Nine is a writer and artist from the UK now based in Miami. His work explores intersecting themes of occultism, African Diaspora traditions, psychogeography, music and culture. The extended text version of 'Guns of Brixton' with additional content will be published in ‘Conjure Codex 4’ by Hadean Press this summer.
