Product Description

Review

'Jeremy Reed's talent is almost extraterrestrial in its brilliance. He is Rimbaud reconfigured as the Man who fell to Earth, a visitor from deep space whose time machine was designed by Lautreamont and de Sade, and powered by the most exotic fuels the imagination has ever devised.' J.G. Ballard 'When Patti Smith meets Rimbaud at Graceland, the result is Jeremy Reed's Heartbreak Hotel'. Edmund White 'Reed's poetry is full of rich and careful writing, dense with pleasure in words that pleasure the world and waken us to its lovely surprises'. Seamus Heaney.

About the Author

Jeremy Reed is Britain's most dynamic, adventurous, controversial and futuristic poet. Called by the Independent 'British poetry's glam, spangly, shape-shifting answer to David Bowie', his poetry, fiction and performances are inimitable in their opposition to grey mainstream poetry. He has published over 40 books of poetry, fiction and non-fiction, winning prestigious literary prizes like the Somerset Maugham Award. When he came to live in London in the 1980s he received he patronage of Francis Bacon. Marc Almond is an internationally acclaimed and successful artist. He has sold over 30 million records worldwide and is an icon and influence to a generation of musicians. He shot to fame in the early 1980s after collaborating with David Ball to form the 'electro duo' Soft Cell. They recorded four albums and had a number of top ten hits including the international classic 'Tainted Love'. After parting amicably from Soft Cell in 1984 Marc Almond has pursued a musical career as a solo artist. He is now the UK's leading torch singer.

Format: Hardcover
"Reed's poems fall out of the book at such a rate they evoke the vitality and the very pace of life, at least in sensory terms, of the Soho locale they were written about/around/in, his honesty empowers and carries his work in a number of ways, particularly in his disregard of poetic convention by describing contemporary imagery with tender reverence, but the thing that appealed to me most about 'Piccadilly Bongo' is Reed's scathing criticism on the state of modern British poetry, and his urges and pleas to alter it."

I have been waiting for this forever.Best Almond album there is.Heartbreaking and joyous at the same time.Marcs version of Gloomy Sunday is almost as good as Billy McKenzies.

Sorry, being a massive Marc Almond fan I bought this for the CD, but I promise to read the poems as well.
