Biography/History

S.A. Griffin (Steven Allan Griffin), born March 16, 1954, is a poet, performance artist, publisher, and actor. After graduating from high school in 1972, Griffin voluntarily entered the United States Air Force as an administration specialist and was honorably discharged in 1976. In 1978, Griffin relocated to Los Angeles from San Francisco with a scholarship to attend the Los Angeles Civic Light Opera Workshop. Griffin's awards for his work on stage and on camera include a Dramalogue Award and a Kari Award.
In 1982, Griffin became involved with poetry when he began attending open poetry readings at the Water Espresso Gallery in Hollywood. During this time he became active in the punk scene as a poet and performance artist, appearing at various Southern California venues such as The Lhasa Club, Anti-Club, X=Art, Al's Bar, Safari Sam's and Club Lingerie. In the mid-1980s, Griffin became directly involved in DIY publishing as a staff member of Shattersheet, and in 1988 he established Rose of Sharon Press with the publication of Sharktalk by Doug Knott. In 1989 Griffin was named Best Performance Poet by Wanda Coleman in the LA Weekly .
In addition to a deep level of involvement in the community through writing, publishing, performing, and hosting poetry events, Griffin extensively collected the publications, artwork, and related ephemera of Los Angeles poets. These materials relate to Venice West, the Los Angeles Beat poetry scene named after the café owned and operated by Stuart Z. Perkoff from 1958-1962, and the Denver, Colorado Beat scene to where many Venice West Beats migrated. He also collected materials related to influential poets such as d.a. levy, Kurt Schwitters, Jack Micheline, Tony Scibella, and Charles Bukowski. With Alan Kaufman, Griffin edited The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry (1999).
In 1985, Griffin and fellow poets Michael Lane Bruner, Doug Knott, and Mike M. Mollett formed The Lost Tribe. From 1985-1988 and in 1992, the group performed poetry in choreographed routines both locally and on tour. In 1989, the group underwent a philosophical shift and transformed, joined by Scott Wannberg (and occasionally Bobbo Staron and Ellyn Maybe), into The Carma Bums, a traveling improvisational performance group. The Carma Bums performed until 2009. From 1995-1996, Griffin and punk musician-poets Iris Berry and Pleasant Gehman formed White Trash Apocalypse, in Gehman's words, "a spoken word tour…treated…like a rock'n'roll tour," which toured the United States and Canada. In 2010, Griffin went on tour with The Poetry Bomb, a decommissioned bomb purchased by Griffin and filled with poetry at readings throughout the country, intending to "foster disagreements…the cornerstone of our democratic system." Since 2007 Griffin has performed with the punk-jazz improvisational group The Lofty Canaanites, composed primarily of members of Saccharine Trust.
Griffin studied film acting and cold reading with Jeremiah Comey and performance technique with Scot Kelman. From 2005 to 2013, Griffin taught film acting and cold reading at the American Film Institute, and since 2012, Griffin has taught film acting and cold reading for Jeremiah Comey. Since 2010, Griffin has served on the curatorial board for Beyond Baroque, and in 2011 Griffin was the first recipient of Beyond Baroque's Distinguished Service Award.
Griffin continues to live and work in Los Angeles. He is married to Lorraine Perrotta, a librarian and veteran member of The L.A. Mudpeople. Griffin has a son, Spencer, from a previous marriage to Sharon Grish.

Biography/History

The first publication Griffin worked with was Shattersheet, edited and published by Jim and April Burns out of the Valley. Jim walked into Al's one night giving away free issues to introduce the zine to everyone. Mike Bruner and Griffin responded immediately and volunteered to do whatever Jim wanted. Shattersheet was important because not only did it publish poetry, but it was the first publication, to Griffin's knowledge, that published a fairly comprehensive listing of poetry events in and around Southern California. Just previous to this Griffin had worked at Medicus, a local printing broker. With Jim and April, wanting to learn everything he could about DIY/small press, Griffin did much of the same tasks: cut and paste, inputting on the ancient Mac used primarily for word processing, collating/folding, distribution, collections, and some editing. Working with Shattersheet Griffin got to know the local community and became very familiar with Scott Wannberg's work long before they met and became friends. Wannberg's book The Electric Yes Indeed!, officially published by Shelf Life Press and with initial editing and publishing by Jim, became the second book Griffin had published.
As Shattersheet was waning, The Moment was on its way up, in Griffin's opinion inspired by the local success of Shattersheet. The Moment was edited and published by Kevin Bartnof, Chris Behling and Eric Lyden, who were more Gonzo in their approach. With The Moment , Griffin was introduced to a deeper Beat dynamic, and in time was introduced to Allen Ginsberg and Jack Micheline, among others. In Griffin's words, "the Carma Bums got directly plugged into The Moment since we fit directly into what it was they were all about."
Griffin became friends with Rafael FJ Alvarado, a regular of the old Onyx, when he disrupted a reading that Griffin was conducting at The Onyx Cafe on Vermont. Eventually, Alvarado and Griffin would publish and edit (Sic) Vice & Verse , first as the broadside (Sic) Random Vice & Verse , then as a periodical. Griffin worked directly with Michael Simmons and Rachel Kusher.

Rats With Keys. Los Angeles. circa 1984-1993

Biographical / Historical

According to Griffin, this zine was created and distributed randomly by Eric Brown and a group referred to as the Nadeau crowd because many of them lived in a house at the end of Nadeau Court in South Central Los Angeles. Many members were UCLA or USC film students, artists, and writers. Rats was a DIY zine created by the group. Everyone contributed anonymously. Griffin, Scott Wannberg, and Mike M. Mollett were a few of the contributors. The Nadeau crew ultimately evolved into the core of Los Angeles Cacophony when Rev Al arrived on the scene.
