Taking over hosting SPEAK from the beautiful poet Deborah Emmanuel who’s leaving for Brisbane…so she and I will be featuring here, and I will be hosting along with Vanessa Victoria, and Deborah will also be performing with her dub band Wobology afterwards. It will be intense, it will be a party, it will be emotional, it will be my first big poetry set in Singapore in 2014, it will be glorious. 

also….I got a really nice review in Sabotage Reviews for my last UK set of 2013 at the Quiltbag Cabaret in Oxford! 

and it was something of a stonker, my notes at this point being punctuated with little doodles of hearts and emphasis given by liberal use of the adjective ‘fucking’, as it wasn’t enough to say it was ‘wonderful’, I apparently had to say it was ‘fucking wonderful’…..And it really was fucking wonderful. With Dogfoot‘s poems conjuring a kind of matter-of-fact magic, full of warm, everyday rhythms and rhymes – aspects of life exaggerated or distilled to their most joyous, beautiful and/or ridiculous.”
