More About Me

about me
First a road manager and back-up singer for the rock group, Cottonmouth in the mid-70's, Justice Putnam then re-emerged with the Laguna Beach Free Poets briefly, part of the Los Angeles Art/ Performance/ Poetry/ Dance/ Punk movement during the early 80's. He then performed solo shows, also as a member of Meta-4 and later with the likes of Jimmy McAlister of Rabbit Choir and Chris Watkins of Hoi Poloi at such venues as Gorky's in Los Angeles, Beyond Baroque in Santa Monica, Cafe du Nord and Bisquits and Blues in San Francisco, Freight and Salvage and The Bison Brewing Company in Berkeley, The Sweetwater in Mill Valley; and also at music festivals in California, Oregon, France, Belgium and Germany. His poetry and prose has been published in Elektrum Magazine, Vol. No. Magazine, American Poetry Anthology, Literatus World Review, Berkeley Daily Planet and other academic, small press, print and online journals.

A scholar-athlete in his youth, Justice Putnam worked as an emergency room and ICU orderly, a Roustabout and a Production Operator at an oil refinery. He taught History and English in private schools briefly, while coaching football and track. He has been a professional chef and restaurant owner, an actor, a theatre light designer, a surfer, deep-sea fisherman and a Grinder on a racing yacht. He was the co-host with the chanson francaise impresario, Simon Dray, on his "Fm/French Connection Bistro Radio" broadcast from KUSF 90.3 in San Francisco for a number of years. Currently Justice is on hiatus from discussing the events of the day with Nykk Fell of Galaxxy Chamber ( www.myspace.com/galaxxychamber ) and Richard Rants ( people.tribe.net/richardrants ) on Richard's live call-in television show. Some old shows can be seen at Richard's website: www.RichardRants.com

He has also traveled around the world with a keen interest in music, art, photography, literature and culinary culture; living for short times in France, Italy, Japan and Mexico. Black Kos Poetry Editor
