Northern Beat Poetry?
Northern Beat poetry Press Release
Northern Beat Poetry? Is that, like, a THING? You better believe it, Post-Truthers. The cultural descendants of Ginsberg, Kerouac and Herman’s Hermits emerge from the cultural swamp that Mr Trump’s busy draining to bring the ripening fruit of invention to the vitamin-deficient streets of the North.
Who cares about courgette shortages? It’s not like Greggs is closing.
On Wednesday 1st March, Northern Beat Poetry, formerly a skulking presence on grimy, stereotyped cobbles, decided to stop hiding its face under the brim of a flat cap to emerge blinking like a released pit pony into the harsh sunlight of sellout and self-promotion. In other words, Jimmy Andrex has released a new album.
A new collection of poems set to minimalist electronica, Northern Beat Poetry bills itself as Brexit Blues in Beats and Broken English, a poetic response to 2016. And it never mentions dead pop stars once, for Northern Beat Poets have bigger fish to fry. With scraps on.
