AUTOBIOGRAPHY: 'Arguments Yard: 35 Years of Ranting Verse and Thrash Mandola' (2015)

from Attila the Stockbroker

My autobiography.
My amateur poet father's amazing escape during WW1. Yes, World War One. His awful death when I was 10. Punk born in a Huguenot burial vault, Brighton, 1977. Battles with the Far Right early 80s. Eyewitness stories of the birth of Rock Against Racism, the miners' strike support gigs, Wapping, Red Wedge, Poll Tax. 6 tours of East Germany, 4 before the Wall came down. First ever punk to do an illegal gig in Stalinist Albania, first punk ever to be invited to North Korea, couldn't go, was already touring Canada. Standing in for Donny Osmond at a gig. Being supported by the Manic Street Preachers. The battle to save Brighton and Hove Albion. And... a billion other things you couldn't make up and I haven't! Contains over 60 poems, many with narrative about how they came to be written.
