A note on: Greatist Hits II with Harry Man and the Torriano Camarade on July 14th


A lot of people think Harry Man hates me, and he does. But what I say to people is this, you can’t take it personal. This is just how Harry operates. It’s what is in his heart. It’s not necessarily about me (despite what he says). Basically, if you have to work with Harry, because of a blood debt, which I’m not going to go into details about, then you have to make the best of it. And that means preparing yourself for someone constantly trying to wind you up, releasing fireworks into your pockets, touching your face ( a lot) and shouting at random points in conversation. I am proud of myself that I’ve managed to stick with it and produce a book with Monsieur Man.

It is entitled GREATIST HITS II and it is the selected collaborations of Harry and I. Harry and I have made this book from the dozen or so works we have made this book from, from performances and publications stretching back at least 3 years. It is to be published by Kingston University Press and released July 14th 2019.

Here is a sample work from the book https://www.wazogate.com/nemesia-3-man-finds/

It will be launched at a special Torriano Camarade, which will be part of the very long running Sunday night Torriano Meeting House reading series and feature new works in pairs from poets who have collaborated for the night. So far folk like Russell Bennetts, Callie Michail, Astra Papachristodoulou, Maria Sledmere are confirmed, with many more to be added. Come along, it will be at 7pm in Kentish town http://www.theenemiesproject.com/torriano
