What is Desperate For Love?

Desperate for Love‘ was a poetry event, held earlier this month on 3rd November 2008, at Brighton’s Komedia. We want to have lots of these events. We want there to be more poetry in Brighton. We all remember ‘Do Tongues’ you see, with a little hint of nostalgia. We want this series to grow up big and strong and then get, say, Lee Harwood to come and read to us all. Or Geraldine Monk. Or you, if you’re any good. Right? Next time, we might be desperate for something else. Supply your own adjective, but for now it’s just:

Desperate for Love, which is not:

Mills and Boon naked girls
Pleading with stony-faced men
Or a Christian Slater sick flick
nor bible song not open mic

Desperate for Love is:

The first in a series of readings
Rock and roll. A bitty bit of soul.
Dancing out freak white and stage fright
Taking back Monday night
Poetry, prosetry, wordery, revelry

From the lips and hips of:

Alan Hay. Wolfy Jones. Gary Goodman. Jacq Aris.

With Born Bad DJ Steph spinning her disques and
cutting up moves plus Special Guests.

This night was a success and we plan on doing more more more. So, please check back to find out where and when.
