If, like me, you have pretentions to write your way to eternity,
The New Libertines already strut their literary stuff
Performing rhymes and novels bluff.

The Albion Bookshop is their stage; eclectic styles of poetry and more
No time for reverie – sit back, let your soul unwind,
Forget the ennui of the 9-5.
Stories of bingo, of sex, knife crime, coagulated time.
Performed with passion, physicality and style.

Let your bones submerge in this bath of finely spiced voices
Discussing saying sorry, wines, and cheese-crazed monsters.
All underscored with a musical interlude
Of double bass and human beat box, never in your face.

So if you want to know why this review
Has eschewed those prosaic norms we’re all so used to -
Good luck, look them up , let your imagination rise up.

Russell George (DI Reviewer), 14/06/11
