About

My name is Alexander Billet. I live in Los Angeles.

I’m a writer and general layabout who prefers non-things to things. I am sometimes coherent but am just as satisfied when I am not.

I frequently write for Jacobin on the topic of music and am currently an editor at Locust Review.

I’ve also written for In These Times, Marx & Philosophy Review of Books, Chicago Review, and other publications. For seven years I was a founding and chief editor at Red Wedge.

I’m also an artist and some of my art will appear sporadically on this site. More of it can be found on my Instagram.

Marxism. Surrealism. Post-punk. Psychogeography.
