Allow me to hijack ye aural canal
Ho there mates. As ye know, ye captain’s tireless in filling me time with diversions both trivial and rum-oriented. In particular this week has been prodding at the music website ye may know as Reverbation. Tis a place o’ no little joy. I’ve had much fun readin’ me yarns live at Pub Poetry and at The Maze, but there’s vast gaps between opportunities for a lazy fellow such as meself. That said I’ll be babblin’ at the Upload Music Festival at The Rescue Rooms on Saturday 31st March and the Nottingham roller-derby team The Hellfire Harlots have been kind enough to book me for one of their events at the end of April. So in the meantime I thought it might be fun to share me tales with ye in their natural format – straight into ye ears. It might lack a certain amount o’ alcohol and the boisterous atmosphere of ye tavern but hopefully ye’ll forgive me simply drinking alone.
Reverbin’ about ye brain
Ye site’s a place o’ music promotion and allows musicians and spoken word ‘artists’ (I struggle to descrive meself as an artist without self-mocking chucklery) to stick songs and audio boblets up on the web for your enjoyment. If ye fancy checkin’ it out, mayhap becoming a fan and even sharing it with ye pals I’ll be ever in ye drinking debt. There’s also a vast array o’ quality music on there too, so ye should explore and find a tune to fit ye mood.

Victory for pirate-kind
So far I’ve uploaded The Orthodontic Odyssey (as heard on the oft praised Flash Pulp) and A Cold, Cold Night Adventure. Expect more to follow! I’ve no idea whether this is a good plan or not, but ye thought’s’ll be appreciated as always. Mayhap we could try a Read-Along-With-Ignatius for them as wish to *cough* improve their piratical accent…
Also, and givin’ me a certain amount o’ pleasure is that I’m currently ranked #1 in the UK National Spoken Word charts. Admittedly tis by virtue o’ bein’ but one of only four or five UK spoken word artists on ye site…
