George E Harris

                                       AND THEN IT COMES BLOWING poetic expression of George E Harris

crop-tomizeGH-A2-FINAL-216x300 George E Harris‘And Then It Comes Blowing’ is a collection of works at the beginning of an exploration for George E Harris. The works can be read aloud as well as sung. At times they have been cut up, spliced and performed as a longer work. Some works are new and yet to be projected through a live setting. The early morning rises to engage in a working day prompted George to write and photograph, using the time of the journeys taken across the city of London. The writing began in forms of notes and phrases from observations and then after thoughts prompted by the photographs. AND WHEN IT COMES BLOWING poetic expression of George E Harris covers a period in Georges writing since 2011 to the present day. ‘Steam Detective’ and ‘Odes To a 1940s Film Set’ are the earliest works with ‘Paradise Walk’, ‘City Am I’, ‘Vs in the Window’ and the title work being more recent pieces. Some works have been added to over a period of recent years because of a need to reflect current events like the work ‘No Poor Doors’, which was initially put together in 2015. George’s works take on an abstract, but social political consciousness of the present. They also use memories of the personal, places and people whilst delving into a constant interest of the cinematic past and present. Each blending and overlapping as life often does. The title ‘And Then It Comes Blowing’ comes from the expressions of waiting, listening, struggles, political and social cares with references to natural occurrences in changing weather systems.  It is a blast of furious thoughts that come out in abstracted realism, split in the in-between moments of observing, memory, news and the written notes.

Rick Dove

Haigh’s Noosphere Canticles

 

Haigha's Noosphere CanticleRick Dove is a London based poet and storyteller, with a background in psychology and philosophy. Rick’s work is informed and influenced by his great love” of classic literature and mythology, and there is more than a little mischief in his use of form, word-play, and subversion of aphorisms.  His poetry, has been described as “delicately nuanced”, a “secret being carefully unwoven…”, whilst “packing an emotional heft and immediacy…” Drawing on influences as varied as Shakespeare, Carroll, and Bukowski, Rick has the capacity to innovate whilst paying homage, and always keeping trick, or two, up his sleeve…

Nick Eisen

                           Probably the Secret Police and Other Slices

 

Performance poets in the 1980s showed Nick Eisen that poetry could be clear, entertaining and topical. This inspired him to go to clubswhere crowds cheered and laughed at rhythms and rhymes, rather than straining in literary silence to decode difficult slabs of blank verse. Nick has been performing around the changing stages of the poetry circuit on and off ever since. From 1997 to 2002 he was also Programmer at the Man In The Moon Theatre in Chelsea, which staged his play Icarus Rising, and where he did occasional stints as the “Emergency Poet” to cover unexpectedly vacant revue slots. Apart from poetry and plays or spoken word, Nick has written sketches and arts journalism, but he has never felt his work belonged in a book, until Jason Why offered this chance: Probably the Secret Police and Other Slices is Nick’s first collection
