In Orbit, Back Soon by David Viney.
Part poetry. Part comic book. Part screenplay. A rhythmic ride through right now.
“A powerhouse of a performer; his work on the page is no different.” Jamie Thrasivoulou
“The brightest Northern star of Manchester’s spoken word scene.” Louise Fazackerley
“One of the authentic voices of Manchester.” Dr Jo Bell
Read ’em and Weep by Thick Richard.
Filled with acerbic humour and cynical, lyrical, well-crafted verse, Read ’em and Weep is a poetic diatribe, issuing challenges to political governance, corporate greed, unwarranted entitlement and the North/South divide.
“A poetic hammer to smash down on all those heart-shaped fingers.” Andrew Graves
“Voracious, vehemently opinionated and very very good.” David Scott aka Argh Kid
“Stu-f**king-pendous!” Dr John Cooper Clarke
