When poetry was the new rock and roll, this was Rupert Holmes - remember the Pina Colada song? Clever with words and catchy wine-bar friendly beat... OK, yes, neither Rock and Roll nor Poetry, or at least not when compared with the New Gen Poets of the mid 1990s, and not when compared with the performance poetry of the Nuyoricans. It is very much of it's time, Slam poetry had already taken off, stalled a little and along came some intellectually slanted operators surfing the Slam swells... it must be due for a comeback. 'Casual Sex' & 'Simply Everyone's Taking Cocaine' - a slam Noel Coward pastiche, are now dated but still fun. However, the 4 stars are for 'One Nation Under a Goatee' - seek it, buy it, love it for that alone.
