Attila the Stockbroker - Undaunted

Sunday, 8 September 2019 - 2:30pm
 
POWERFUL, PASSIONATE, POLITICAL, PERSONAL PUNK PERFORMANCE POETRY AND PSONGS.
 
ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER – UNDAUNTED!
 
The world is changing fast, Attila the Stockbroker is writing about it - and he is more fired up than he has ever been in 39 years as a performance poet. 
 
At his gigs all over Europe you’ll hear his humourous and hard-hitting take on the momentous events of recent times -  and a whole lot more besides, for Attila has developed a deeply personal side to his work these days. Alongside the high-energy political satire for which he is best known,  he writes movingly about his family and his recent cancer diagnosis. He’ll be performing poems from his new  collection 'Undaunted’– 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, which he will accompany on mandola,  crumhorn, recorder and sausage bassoon, showcasing the new and unique ‘early music meets punk’ album ‘Restoration Tragedy’ he released in 2018 with his band Barnstormer 1649 about the tumultuous times in the Commonwealth of England after the execution of Charles the First. 
 
Music for Levellers, Diggers and Ranters! 
 
Laugh, cry, get angry and learn a bit of history the opposite way to how it was taught in school!
 
 
Disestablished in 1980 and 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 39 years, doing over 3400 gigs in 24 countries and releasing over 40 CDs/LPs/singles, 8 books of poetry and, in 2015 his autobiography ‘Arguments Yard’.
 
 
ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER is UNDAUNTED at The Continental on Sunday 8th September 2019 - doors open at 2.30pm. 
 
Tickets are £8 advance (£9 on the door)
