In his capacity as publisher of Monocle-Lash Anti-Press, he has edited and issued over 100 books, journals, and discs featuring work by scores of writers, thinkers, and artists from around the world. Himself the author or co-author of 40 books of critical and social theory, verse, historiography, performance scores, visual poetry, polemic, and collage, Lindsann has performed and lectured extensively in the US and the United Kingdom, in contexts spanning anarchist squats to university classes to bookshops to biennials to punk basements. He actively maintains several archives of contemporary and historical countercultures, notably the Post-NeoAbsurdist Archive (contemporary avant-garde), Revenant Archive (19th Century avant-garde), Autonomous Library (chspbooks, xines, and micropress). and Southwest Virginia Punk & Zine Archive.
