Spiky Spoken Word

This Friday I am going to be reading my poetry and depending on how brave I’m feeling maybe some of my sort of rap/performance geek poetry at the Frog and Fiddle . It costs about £4 to get in I think and on top of that there is A F Harold who is well worth a watch for his interesting poems (I’m not biased because he used one of my cats names in his Tweet Poetry for the Cheltenham Lit Festival honest!). There is also Men Diamler and Brown Torpedo who I have been meaning to blog about for ages and have like photos of performances and stuff but haven’t gotten round to yet!

Men Diamler is what I think of as a sort Nick Cave / White Strips mix with a dark middle English ring to it. He weaves fantastical and often tragic tails in his music and yes I am a fan 😉

Brown Torpedo are erm… well the only way I can think of describing them off the top of my head is, I suppose – Trippy with that sort ethereal swerl allowing dreams of the present day – or something Simon from Uni would make us all listen too and then tell me they don’t exist and I imagined them the next day!
