A poetry anthology boasting some of the UK’s most exciting voices who have all shared the Neu! Reekie! bill includes Adelle Stripe’s poems ‘Big Weekend’ and ‘Sacred Heart’.
Many of the works are new, many are favourites read at the events; all are savoured, sublime, sumptuous voices within poetry already – with the exception of Aidan Moffat of Arab Strap and Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit – who are ferocious forces within music and beyond.
Contributors include: Irvine Welsh, Douglas Dunn, Liz Lochhead, Ron Butlin and Tom Leonard; as well as younger blood such as: Jenni Fagan, Hollie McNish and William Letford.
Accompanying the book is a 20 track compilation album, artists include: Jesus, Baby; Emelle;The Merrylees; Stanley Odd; TeenCanteen and Young Fathers.
