POETRY/SPOKEN WORD ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER

Punk poet, latterly dub poet, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Attila the Stockbroker exploded into public consciousness in 1982-3 via two John Peel sessions and a Melody Maker front cover and is now celebrating over forty years earning a living doing what he loves. So far: nearly 4000 gigs in 24 countries, some 20 albums, eight books of poems, his autobiography Arguments Yard and his collected works  Heart on my Sleeve. His latest album, endorsed by his old friend, the now sadly departed Ben Zephaniah, is a dub poetry collection 40 Years In Rhyme with rhythms from Kingsley Salmon and What’s Left Dub, and his previous one, 2018’s Restoration Tragedy  combines early music and punk – a lifelong ambition – with tales of the English Revolution of 1649.

Attila’s current performance comprises fiery, satirical, political and personal spoken word, dub poetry, acoustic songs and early music punk on ancient instruments. He really doesn’t sound like anything else. And his material is very, very up to date.
