DOORS OPEN 7pm for 7:30 start
The world is going nuts, Attila the Stockbroker is writing about it - and he is more fired up than he has ever been in 36 years as a performance poet.
He understands why all this is happening, and it’s not because ‘people are stupid’. If you come and listen to him you’ll hear his humourous and hard-hitting take on the momentous events of the last few months - and a whole lot more besides, for Attila has developed a deeply personal side to his work alongside the political satire for which he is best known. He’ll be performing poems from his soon to be published collection ‘The Last Trump’ – the title says it all – as well as extracts from his recent autobiography ‘Arguments Yard’ (Cherry Red Books). And there will be a few of his songs as well, accompanied by his trusty mandola, Nelson. Laugh, cry and get very very angry.
Launched into public consciousness by legendary Radio One DJ John Peel in 1982/83, Attila the Stockbroker has toured the world performing his sharp-tongued, radical social surrealist poetry and songs for 36 years, releasing over 40 CDs/LPs/singles, 7 books of poetry and, just over a year ago, his autobiography.
