Topic: Simon Armitage

Reading Simon Armitage's All Points North again.  Wonderful book and I strongly recommend you read it if you haven't.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Same here, it's just as good if you go back to it.  Lots of imagery.  Poet innit.

He was on with The Wedding Present the other week, only just remembered. I was a bit refreshed.

Re: Simon Armitage

There's a great piece somewhere, of him describing a poetry reading that was accompanied by someone interpreting it in sign language for the deaf and becoming increasingly animated.  Towards the end, of the performance, Armitage describes him as "resembling Ian Curtis, dancing to She's Lost Control"

"We are The Fall"
